The Meeting

I will be busy entertaining our guest from Australia, so I won't be around much until Monday afternoon or Tuesday. I promise to get to the folks that have participated in our weekly memes. On with the post for today...

As a popular local politician I always try to help out whenever I can. So that’s how it came to be that when a fellow came up to me in a hotel lobby the other day and asked me for a small favor I was more then happy to oblige.

“Hi,” said the fellow, introducing himself as Bob Smith. “I’m having a very important business meeting in a few minutes, and it’s very important that I impress them. If you can just come over during our meeting and say hello I would be forever indebted to you!”

So that’s how a few minutes later, I found myself walking over to the fellow with a big smile on my face, “Hi Bob!” I said.

I barely got the words out of my mouth when Bob looked up with an annoyed expression, “DON’T BOTHER ME NOW CHRIS. CAN’T YOU SEE I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IMPORTANT MEETING?!

  5. Have a good time with your visitors, as I know you will. And if you meet Bob Smith, tell his 'important guest' that you are Bob's mother and Bob shouldn't treat you that way.

  6. Smooth move! Have fun with your guest. We have a visitor from the other side of town...my stepdaughter. She's here to make sure she gets a car when she turns 16 in two months! Interesting how they want to spend time with you suddenly when it's car time!

  9. Oh, how nasty is that? I think I'd slap him forcibly... OK, I grew up in New York so that standard operating procedure. What a d**k.

    I hope you and your Aussie friend have a great time. Ask him if Foster's is Australian for beer. That ad annoys my Aussie friends, but it also opened up a font of worthwhile conversation about the similarities and differences of our cultures.

    1. According to Phil Foster's is hard to get in Australia and I believe it's made here in America. :)

  11. A politician who is upset at being lied to? Turn about is fair play. Nice to see one on the receiving end.
