Man Meets Bill Gates At Airport And Asks Him One Question

A hilarious joke about Bill Gates is going viral this week, and it’s sure to bring a smile to your face!

I was in the VIP lounge of an airport as I headed to Seattle, Washington a couple weeks ago. While I was in there, I noticed the billionaire Bill Gates sitting in the corner quietly enjoying a drink. I was supposed to meet a very important client who was also flying to Seattle, but she was running late.

I’ve always been a straight-forward person, so I approached the former chairman of Microsoft and introduced myself. After telling him my name, I said, “Mr. Gates, I wonder if you would do me a favor.”

“Yes?” he asked me.

Pointing at my seat at the bar, I said, “I’m sitting right over there, and I’m waiting for a very important client. Would you be so kind when she arrives as t come walk by and just say, ‘Hi Tom?'”

“Sure,” Bill agreed, with a kind smile on his face.

After saying thank you and shaking his hand, I went back to my seat.

Around ten minutes later, my client showed up at the VIP lounge. We then ordered a drink and started talking business. A few minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder, and sure enough, it was Bill Gates.

“Hi Tom,” he said.

Without missing a beat, I replied, “Shut up, Bill, I’m in a meeting!”

LOL! I can only imagine how Bill Gates would react in this situation!
