Taking yourself too seriously?
Some years ago, my friend C spotted Jim Courier in a bar in Wanchai. Jimmie boy had had a bad, bad tournament and was commisserating.
C, in the spirit of cheering Mr Courier up, approched him and said:
"Hey Jim, I'm a tennis coach here in Hong KOng. I could give you a few pointers."
Mr Courier, being an American, did not get the funny in this and replied:
"Just you keep drinking your beer, Sonny!'
C thinking that this was unusally arrogant, even for a yank, proceeded to ask a girlfriend for a favour.
Next person to approach Jimmie was a pretty Asian girl saying:
"Sorry Boris - could I have your autograph?"
