I NEED TO GET OUT MORE - PART ONE
The Annoying Important Business Dude
Just when I think I’m running out of blog material, Mrs. C and I go on vacation and I meet interesting/annoying people and suddenly I have material. I guess I just need to get out more.
Today (12-4) we hopped on a plane for Florida where we will spend a few days before going on a cruise to Key West and then Mexico. I am not fond of cruises, so we will see…more material on the way.
On just the plane trip alone, I observed three interesting people.
The first was the super busy, super important annoying business dude. This jerk was waiting in line to board, priority boarding of course, and he was yakking on the cell phone.
“So far it has been a good trip, but I’m a little pissed today as I could not get upgraded. Yeah, yeah, I know, sometimes you have to blend with the little people. Listen did you go over the contracts with Al?...NO… NO! You can’t accept that…Listen, you tell that numb nutz that without that clause there is no deal!”
It was really annoying listening to this windbag hollering on the phone trying to impress the crowd of waiting plane boarders. When he finally got off the phone, I pulled out my cell and started talking very loudly to no one.
“What? Listen, start a rumor that the deal is not going through, then SELL! SELL everything and then go short some more, just keep selling. Yes, you heard me dammit, SELL! When the price hits 25 stop selling, announce that the deal is going through after all, and BUY! Buy all you can get up to 30. Yes I’m sure, just do it!”
Then I fake hung up and said to the annoying important business dude,
“Jeez, sometimes I don’t know why I keep him around.”
Well, actually I didn’t do any of that, but I sure wanted to!
