This week I was in a business lunch with a big cheese from an english bank, also based in Bahrain. The CEO and I were eating pasta and discussing work issues when he simply slapped my juice glass who fell right on my pasta bowl.
I had no idea wat to say, but before I had the chance to open my mouth, he said:
- i am terribly sorry, but I never eat strawberry gnochi, I have to try it.
And he just took a bite of his new creation.
- nah, it does not work. don't eat it!
I laughed, the atmosphere went back to normal and I understood why he is the CEO and I will never be.
