An expensive looking watch

MAY, 2018

Sitting in the lobby of the Palmer Hotel in Chicago. A guy sitting across from me is talking on two cell phones at once. He’s wearing a suit and tie, and has an expensive looking watch. I can only make out snatches of the conversations:

“Completely unacceptable”

“Possibly Thursday”

“We’re moving forward with it. No more discussion needed.”
