A young businessman was sitting in the VIP lounge at an airport waiting for a prospective client. Suddenly, the young man noticed Bill Gates sitting across the room. He introduced himself to Gates, explaining that he was trying to seal an important business deal. He asked Gates, “Could you possibly just say a quick ‘Hello Chris” to me when I’m with my client? It would help seal the deal.” Gate agreed. Five minutes later the client arrived, and Bill Gates tapped the young man on the shoulder and said, “Hey Chris, what’s happening?’ The young man replied, “Take a hike, Gates, I’m in a meeting.”
