Overheard at Table 3: How Do We Get to Be Filthy Stinking Rich

M: There's a lot of money in this town.

C: Yes there is.

M: A lot of people are filthy stinking rich.

C: True.  There are.

M: How do you get filthy stinking rich in this country?

C: How do you mean?

M: Well, I want to get filthy stinking rich.   

C: Well, in this town, mainly it's oil.  Oil, when it's up, gives annual bonuses that lets some people buy boats.

M: I want to be that rich.

C: We ARE that rich.  We're the President and the VP of a $90M asset manufacturing company, on track to make $65M annual revenue.  We ARE rich.

M: Yeah but we're not FILTHY STINKING RICH.  That's where I want to get to.  How do I get there?

C: Look, if I knew that, I wouldn't be here talking to you.  I'd be driving my Ferrari around my private island.

M: And I'm sure if you ever found out, you wouldn't let me in on the secret.

C: Sure I would.  There'd be enough wealth to go around.
