A gentleman at an expensive restaurant observed a startlingly attractive woman at another table and asked a waiter to send his best bottle of champagne to her.
The waiter brought the woman a botte and said, “This is from the gentleman seated over there,” indicating the sender.
She regarded the wine coolly for a second not looking at the man, and decided to send a reply note to him.
The waiter, who was lingering 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 dollars 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 then folded it and handed it to the waiter, asking him to return it to the woman.
It read: “For your information, I have a Mercedes CL600 in my garage. I also have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, and a Porsche Turbo in the garages of my various homes, and a 20% stake in a private jet in my private hangar.
As for my bank account, there are over twenty-million dollars of cash in it, not counting a greater amount in stocks and bonds in my brokerage account, and a private island maintained by my private real estate holding company. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you, would I cut three inches off. Just send the bottle back.
