A world famous movie star is sitting in a hotel lobby, planning his motivational speech to a group of businessmen, when a man walks up to him.
“Excuse me, sir, I don’t want to bother you, but my name is Steve, and I’m here with an extremely important client tonight. We’re going to see your speech, and it would be a great help to me if, when we walk by, you could impress him by saying, ‘Hello, Steve’.”
The movie star readily agrees, and fifteen minutes later, the man walks by, deep in conversation with his client.
The star comes up and says, “Hello, Steve.”
Steve replies, “Not now! I’m in a meeting,” and keeps walking.
