I Saw You

Self-Important Businessmen

I saw you, and the other bozo, at San Jose International Airport flying American to O.C. You were the young guy with the white-collared shirt talking very loudly on the cell phone, supposedly conducting business, and you were the older guy, sitting near the front of the plane, allegedly talking to someone about "How many units they wanted?"

It's been my experience that anyone who talks business loudly in a public place is either indiscreet, bragging or pretending to have an "important" business call. Hey, if you captains of industry were so important, why weren't you flying in a Citation out of the Jet Center instead of being among the rabble. Next time, have your egos checked instead of carried on; not all of us want to hear what you have to say.
