Meeting of the Minds
Mike Roberts was a popular New York politician and always tried to help out his constituents whenever he could. One day, Moishe Applebaum came up to Mike at a local hotel lobby and asked for a small favor.
“Mr. Roberts,” said Moishe, “In a few minutes I’ve got a very important business meeting. Probably the most important one in my life. While I’m talking to this fellow, can you come over and say hello? I would be forever indebted to you!”
“Well it would be my pleasure,” said Representative Roberts. “Anything to help foster business in my district!”
Sure enough, a few minutes later, Moishe is having his important meeting and Representative Roberts walks over with a big smile on my face and says, “Hi Moishe! Nice to see you again.”
He could barely get the words out of his mouth when Moishe looked up at him with an annoyed look on his face, “DON’T BOTHER ME NOW MIKE! CAN’T YOU SEE I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IMPORTANT MEETING?!”
