How to impress a client

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


“I’m sitting right over there,” pointing to my seat at the bar, 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?”


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, Tom,” he said.

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

Little Johnny ( very naughty )

I forward this joke 4 my friend @ BIMA, specially 4 B’Dayat and Veronika S.

Smile, Guys!!! 😉

Dear All,
 Please enjoy the innocence & witifulness of Small kids…….. ……… ……… …

It was Friday  morning, and that meant it was time for an activity that the teacher  called ‘add to the picture’. The teacher would call students to the  chalkboard one at a time. The first student would draw an object on the  chalkboard, and each following student would add something to the picture  to make it a new picture.



The  teacher called on James to start things off.    
James  returned to his seat.
The  teacher called on Ernie next.



 Ernie  returned to his seat.
Now  it was Suzy’s turn.







Suzy  returned to her seat.
Next,  the teacher called Kim  to the board.





Kim  returned to her seat.
About  this time, little Johnny began waving his arm hysterically. Little Johnny  was well known for being off center, so the teacher was reluctant to call  on him for anything. But as the teacher looked at the picture on the  chalkboard, she thought that there was no way that little Johnny could  possibly do anything to make this pictur e dirty. So she cal led on little  Johnny, and he ran to the chalkboard.





The  entire class erupted with laughter…. the Teacher fainted.  
Little  Johnny had done it  again.

Retirement Center

Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: “John, I’m 83 years old now and I’m just full of aches and pains. I know you’re about my age. How do you feel?”

John says, “I feel just like a newborn baby.”

“Really!? Like a newborn baby!?”

“Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just pooped my pants.”

Suspicious Wife

A wife suspected that her husband was having an affair with the housemaid.

She thought of a plan to take him by surprise.

One Friday she told the maid to take the day off and that night she went into the maid’s room, switched off all the lights and, in pitch darkness, slipped into the bed.

Sure enough at midnight, there were footsteps and a figure opened the door and slipped into the maid’s bed beside her…

After a few passionate kisses, the wife suddenly switched on the lights and asked, “Surprised?”

“I sure am, ma’am!” stammered the chauffeur.
