Greek Business

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usA typical sample of Greek cunningness….  We have a Greek father, talking to his son…

NICK POULOS (father): I want you to marry a girl of my choice.
GEORGE POULOS: ‘ I will choose my own bride!!! ‘

NICK POULOS (father): ‘But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter.. ‘
GEORGE POULOS: ‘Well, in that case… ok’

Next NICK POULOS approaches Bill Gates…

NICK POULOS (father): ‘I have a husband for your daughter…. ‘
Bill Gates: ‘But my daughter is too young to marry!!!!! ‘

NICK POULOS (father): ‘But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank. ‘
Bill Gates: ‘Ah, in that case… ok’

Finally NICK POULOS goes to see the president of the World Bank…

NICK POULOS : ‘I have a young man to recommend as a vice-president. ‘
President: ‘But I already have more vice- presidents than I need! ‘

NICK POULOS : ‘But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law. ‘
President: ‘Ah, in that case… ok’

And that my friends is how GREEKS do business….
