How to truly impress a client

I was sitting in the airport VIP lounge en route to Seattle a couple of
weeks ago. While in there, I noticed Bill Gates sitting comfortably in the
corner, enjoying a drink. I was meeting a very important client who was
also flying to Seattle, but she was running a little bit late. Well, being
a straightforward kind of guy, I approached the Microsoft chairman,
introduced myself, and said, "Mr. Gates, I wonder if you would do me a
favor."

"Yes?"

"I'm sitting right over there," pointing to my seat at the bar, and I'm
waiting on a very important client. Would you be so kind when she arrives as
to come walk by and just say, 'Hi, Ray,'?"

"Sure."

I shook his hand and thanked him and went back to my seat.

About ten minutes later, my client showed up. We ordered a drink and started
to talk business.

A couple of minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Bill Gates.

"Hi, Ray," he said.

I replied, "f**k off, Gates, I'm in a meeting."
