I'M SO IMPORTANT


Former Secretary of Labor Raymond Donovan tells the story of being on Air Force One. He was in the back compartment of the jet while President Reagan was in the front of the compartment. The phone rang in the back compartment and the voice said, "Mr. Donovan, the president would like for you to join him for lunch." Secretary Donovan straightened his tie and thought to himself how important he was to have the president ask him to lunch.


Just as Donovan walked through the doorway into the president’s compartment, the red phone rang, the Presidential Hot Line. Wow--what a moment to be present! Reagan picked up the phone and said, "Yes--uhhuh. Yes--what are my options’" Donovan’s heart almost stopped. His mind raced. Then President Reagan continued, "OK. I’ll have the iced tea!" Donovan’s ego was deflated.
