Description: Comeback, "Do you know who my father is?"
* Right or wrong, a good number of openings for summer jobs at our
organization were filled by the sons and daughters of our upper level
management. Most of the career employees treated these privileged few
with kid gloves. I however had never been accused of having good
common sense. It was my unpleasant chore to dress down one of the
soon-to-be rising stars (the son of our Chief Engineer) for a rather
costly error he had made.
After I finished, apparently unable to think of anything else
to say, the young lad stammered "Do you know who my Father is?"
I paused, looked at him, then said in my most sympathetic voice,
"Why no, I'm afraid I don't. Don't you ?"
