All in the Family

Luigi (father): ‘I want you to marry a girl of my choice.’

Son: ‘I will choose my own bride!!!’

Luigi: ‘But the girl is Bill Gates’ daughter..’

Son: ‘Well, in that case . . . ok’


Next Luigi approaches Bill Gates.

Luigi: ‘I have a husband for your daughter…’

Bill Gates: ‘But my daughter is too young to marry!!’

Luigi: ‘But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank’

Bill Gates: ‘Ah, in that case . . . ok’


Finally Luigi goes to see the president of the World Bank.

Luigi: ‘I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president.’

President: ‘But I already have more vice-presidents than I need!’

Luigi : ‘But this young man is Bill Gates’ son-in-law.’

President: ‘Ah, in that case . . . ok’


And that, my friends, is how Italians do business.
