A gentleman asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an attractive woman
he spotted dining alone. The waiter took the Merlot to the woman 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. 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 folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to return
this to the woman. It read:
"For your information, I have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, a Mercedes
CL600 and a Porsche Turbo in my garage. There is over twenty million dollars
in my bank account. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you, would I
cut three inches off. Just send the bottle back."
