I once tried to blag my way into the V.I.P lounge at Heathrow airport.
The guy on the door said " But you're not a V.I.P."
Without a moments hesitation, I replied, " We're all V.I.P.'s . . No-one is more important than anyone else in this world ".
That made him chuckle. He let me down gently by saying,
" You wouldn't like it in there - it's dull and the people aren't very nice "
