“A little sarcasm goes a long way”


I was working at a big advertising firm.  She came in as a  sales exec from the phone company, interviewing random employees about the new phone system.  “What kind of features would you want on your desk set?” she asked.  I was feeling a bit self-important, as ad guys do and replied,  “I want speed dial, special rings, earpiece volume control, speaker phone—.”   “You can stop right there,” she said.  “We’ve got just the set for you. It’s a couple of tin cans and a wire.”  Brilliant.


Postscript: Since our first date we haven’t been apart for a day in 25 years.
