David, a top company executive, has just delivered an important speech to his Board of Directors and is very, very angry.
As soon as he returns home, he takes his iPhone from his pocket and calls his dance teacher Rachel, as it was she who had kindly agreed to write the speech for him.
As soon as Rachel answers his call, David says to her, “Rachel, I’m sorry to have to tell you but that speech you wrote for me was terrible. It was far too long. The first half was fine, but the second half was so dull and boring that some of the Directors actually walked out on me.”
“But David,” says Rachel, “I gave you two copies of that speech in case you mislaid it.”
