How Greeks Negotiate!

Costa (father): ‘I want you to marry a girl of my choice.’
Son: ‘I will choose my own bride!!!’
Costa: ‘But the girl is Bill Gate’s daughter..’
Son: ‘Well, in that case… ok’

Next Costa approaches Bill Gates.

Costa: ‘I have a husband for your daughter….’
Bill Gates: ‘But my daughter is too young to marry!!!!!’
Costa: ‘But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.’
Bill Gates: ‘Ah, in that case… ok’

Finally Costa goes to see the president of the World Bank.

Costa: ‘I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.’
President: ‘But I already have more vice- presidents than I need!’
Costa: ‘But this young man is Bill Gate’s son-in-law.’
President: ‘Ah, in that case… ok’

And that my friend is how Greeks do business.
