On a business meeting in Japan, Mr. Purple was in a skyscraper overlooking the city. The sun had not yet come up for the morning as his team were taking their seats in the meeting room. The Japanese leaders they were meeting with said to Bill to sit facing the city so he could have the best seat In the house overlooking Japan. The witty Bill knowing the sun would be in his eyes told the leader, "No I insist, this is your building and I'm not going to take your best seats." The Japanese leader, to avoid looking foolish, sat facing the city and as the sun rose it started to blind him. This put Bill in control of the meeting and he was able to negotiate what he wanted.
Best story I've heard in life. Thanks for the memories.
