Mr. Big Shot

Location: Mall of the Emirates
Time: Last night

Me: Hey man, long time no see .. five years or so. How are you?
Him (puffing Cuban cigar smoke in air): I am good.
Me: What are you doing now? Hope all is well.

(he pulled out a business card from a polished metal case and gives it to me)

Me: Wow, CEO.. congratulations. Since when?
Him: A while back. I own the company.
Me: I am impressed! So, how many employees do you have?
Him: three

  • Why does anyone need to smoke a cigar in Mall of the Emirates. Drives me crazy.

  • It really depends on what you do. You can be a company of one and run a thriving business.

    Three employees ain't such a bad thing. Of course, the cigar stuff and the CEO business card are totally hilarious!!

  • So, Mr.

    You're complaining about meeting a CEO.

    Then, you find out Mr. CEO is not the huge company you're not accustomed to working for.

    Go light up the cigar you'd love to light up in the cinema.

    Or did you have better plans as CEO's assistant wannabe?

    Life sucks, Mr. CEO disser.

    Prove me wrong, please.
