How Greeks Do Business

Kosta (father): ‘I want you to marry a girl of my choice.’
Son: ‘I will choose my own bride!!!’

Kosta: ‘But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter..’
Son: ‘Well, in that case… ok’

Next Kosta approaches Bill Gates.

Kosta: ‘I have a husband for your daughter....’
Bill Gates: ‘But my daughter is too young to marry!!!!!’

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

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

Kosta: ‘I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.’
President: ‘But I already have more vice- presidents than I need!’

Kosta: ‘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.
