Business Matters

So boss man told me a really interesting story today about how he once represented a NY cement-mixing company (red flag) and how he was forced to endure frequent “business” trips to a restaurant in Brooklyn (another red flag). He described the restaurant as “the kind that is located downstairs in a cellar shared with several crates of miscellaneous items, most of them illegal, and was guarded by a large black man named Theo.” Anyway, said boss was assigned to write a Q&A on the “chief” of the cement company and his future plans for business growth. So of course, the first question he asked was: “So, when it crossed the wire the other day that you are going to knock-off Little Tony in Red Hook, what exactly did you mean by that?”

Now that’s what I call PR. Those were the good ol’ days.
