Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

I just read D'Arcy's post about books and the one on Larry Ellison reminded me of a story I heard about 10 years ago.

I was working with the son of an Oracle VP.  He told us about the time his dad and Larry went to Dell.  I believe it was Dell, may have been one of the other big computer guys.  We'll go with Dell.  Remember, this was 10 years ago.  Anyway, when Larry and his dad arrived Michael Dell was in the bathroom, so they had to wait a total of 3 minutes.  When Michael showed up, Larry was pissed, and said "Nobody makes me wait."  Oracle canceled the contract costing them quite a bit of money to satisfy Larry's ego.

Now this is second hand, so I always wondered how much of a "fish" story this was.  But I can so picture it happening.
