A man asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an unusually attractive
woman sitting alone at a table in a cozy little restaurant. So the
waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, 'This is from the
gentleman who is seated over there.' ..and indicated the sender
with a nod of his head. She stared at the wine coolly for a few
seconds, not looking at the man, then decided to send a reply to
him by a note. The waiter, who was lingering nearby for a response,
took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman.
The note read:
'For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your
garage, a million pounds in the bank and 7 inches in your pants'
After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own
in return. He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed
him to deliver it to the lady.
'Just to let you know things aren't always what they appear to be,
I have a Ferrari Maranello, BMW Z8, Mercedes CL600, and a
Porsche Turbo in my several garages; I have beautiful homes in
Meribel & Milan, and a 10,000 acre winery in France. There is over
twenty million pounds in my bank account and portfolio. But, not
even for a woman as beautiful as you are, would I cut off three
inches. Just send the bottle back.'
