my wife had me setup her gmail acct for outlook access on her computer. at which point, the most recent email displayed in the outlook window the email went as follows... Morning xxxx (my wife), I'm sure you are taking the holiday off. Some of us are not so lucky. When you get back in your office, could you do me a favor? Would you take a quick look around and see if you have a 2008/2009 Legal directory? If you do, might I borrow it for a bit? Yes, I will repay the favor. Thank you very much. xxxx (wife) -- reply How will you repay the favor? xxx -- I mean it is just a legal directory, but it could get you a cocktail hour drink. When you start getting me business and giving me your contacts, then I will owe you that much more. A small favor gets a small favor; the larger favors are probably what you will be looking forward to. Does this mean you have a current legal directory that I can steal/borrow from you? xxxx (my wife) ______________________________ What would you take away from seeing that?
