Larry, the hot young businessman, had just started his own firm.
He rented a beautiful modern office and had it furnished with state-of-the art furniture and gadgets.
Sitting there on his first day, he saw a man come into the outer office.
Wishing to appear the hot shot, Larry picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal working.
He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments.
Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, “Can I help you?”
The man tipped his baseball cap and said, “Yeah, I’ve come to activate your phone lines.”
