My Favourite Brussels anecdote

Brussels: time is precious – a company representative goes into a meeting with Commissioner and starts talking about golf and the weather. The Commissioner was very polite and indulged the rep in the conversation, but after 5 minutes got up and left saying he had another meeting to get to. The baffled company rep said “But I never got to my point”, and the Chef de Cabinet answered “precisely!”
