"I've Gotta Jump."

I've been crazy busy at work, but I had to post this quickly because I knew I would forget.

We have a client that is "too cool for school." Seriously, he pretends like he doesn't know who I am, even though we've met at least twenty times and have talked on the phone no less than fifty. We are a very small company. Anyway, that's not all, but you get the drift. He's the epitome of the poster, "You'll never be four collars popped cool." If you haven't seen it, you should Google it. I think of him every time I see it.

Okay, so I'm working on a transaction for him and he's pulling his usual garbage. Thankfully, those things don't generally bother me and, surprisingly, it doesn't happen more often. I have clients that come into our office far more affluent than he and they treat me like their best bud. Good idea! :) They are smart enough to know that people work harder for you, if you are not an ass!

Anyway, I digress. I called him for the ninth time today and he's always hurried and impatient. Listen, bud, you asked for the info. I've got it. Now, shut up and let me give you the answers. Well, he closed his phone conversation today with "Okay, I've gotta jump." Huh? Correct me if I am wrong, and I very well could be, but I believe it expression is "I've gotta bounce." Hmm..I wouldn't know. I'm just not that cool. :) Ha ha! Even funnier, I got a copy of his license and he is 56! Certainly that isn't old, but his attitude, dress and lame expressions show that he thinks he's in college.

Sorry, I'm in a hurry. Hope you get a laugh! :) I know I did!

That is hilarious - gotta jump. Yeah, bounce would be the correct term...

Happy Friday at least! :)
