A man meets Bill Gates at the airport, and asks him this

I was 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 ex-chairman, introduced myself, and said, “Mr. Gates, I wonder if you would do me a favor.”


“Yes?” He asked,


“I’m sitting right over there,” Pointing to my seat at the bar, I continued,… “And I’ m waiting for a very important client.  Would you be so kind when she arrives as to come walk by and just say,… ‘Hi Tom?’”


“Sure.” Bill agreed, with a kind smile.


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 we started to talk business.


A couple of minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder.  It Was Bill Gates. “Hi, Tom,” he said.


I replied, “Shut up, Bill, I’m in a meeting.”
