The most odd request

Jag fick för ett tag sedan en förfrågan att berätta om min mest annorlunda förfrågan som jag fick under min tid som Pelle Törnbergs assistent -94/-95. Svaren från mig och andra av Pelle Törbergs forna VD-assistenter skulle tryckas i en specialupplaga av Metro som en avskedsgåva till Pelle Törnberg när han nu slutat på MTG och Metro. Mitt bidrag lät:

"Oddest request from Pelle during your trainee period:
Pelle: How many companies do we have within MTG? Me: Well some 135 when I counted the last time.
Pelle: Do we have a company presentation I can use for a meeting? Me: Yes, there is the printed version.
Pelle: Not good enough. Can you put together a 5 minute company video presentation? Me: Yes, of course, we have plenty off skilled people to do that within the group.
Pelle: Great. One thing though: it needs to be done in 24 hours. Me: Sir yes Sir.
Pelle: And it needs to be in Vietnamese. Me: Sir yes S…?
Pelle 23,5 hours later: Thanks Johan, looks good. Just one question. Are you sure that the translator you found was pro [the Vietnamese] Government? It is sort of important. I am meeting with the Vietnamese Prime Minister and his government delegation in 45 minutes."
