I will keep this short story, well, short.
I had just landed at Chicago’s Executive Airport and I was helping unload our passengers and get them into the FBO.
I was walking our lady client to the door, and, being the gentleman that I am, held the door open for her. As she passed through, I noticed a large group of people also coming in from the ramp having just disembarked a $43 million Gulfstream jet.
I decided to continue to hold the door for the group. As they approached, I noticed the man at the head of the pack, and he looked awfully familiar from twenty feet away. I did the not-so-subtle stare and as he was about ten feet away, it clicked. It was presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani!
As he approached, I gave him “the nod” and casually asked, “Hey, how’s it going?”
RG - “Not too bad. Thanks for the door.”
Me - “Have a good one.”
RG - “You too.”
And through the door he went, carrying with him the hopes of getting a really crappy job!
