I told my son, "You will marry the girl I choose."
He said, "No."
I told him, "She is Bill Gate's daughter."
He said, "Yes."
I called Bill Gates and said, "I want your daughter to marry my son."
Bill Gates said, "No".
I told Bill Gates, "My son is the CEO of World Bank."
Bill Gates said, "Okay".
I called the president of World Bank and asked him to make my son the CEO.
He said, "No".
I told him, "My son is Bill Gate's son-in-law."
He said, "Okay."

Store owner: "I'd still like twenty customers like you. The problem is, I have two hundred customers like you."
