Why Don't We Meet Over Coffee? - KEMOSABE Gourmet Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/9/2016
I knew that this will be a rather long call so I made myself a cup of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut gourmet flavored coffee before I sat down to call Jerry, the partner of our account at Lippett, Moore & Douglas, CPA’s.

“Hi Jerry, Frank Bowman here. As you know our company has been contemplating purchasing Wickman Tool & Die for some time now. Last night the Wickman board accepted our offer.”

“That’s great, Frank. Congratulations. It will be a wonderful fit.”

“Jerry, we need to engage your firm to review and certify five years of the financial statements of Wickman before we can close the deal. Time is of the essence,” I added. “As Chief Financial Officer of the company the board told me they want this deal done within the next two months. I know that this puts you under a lot of pressure to get your side of things done but that’s the timeline.”

“Boy does it ever, Frank.” For the next several minutes Jerry proceeded to outline the scope of his assignment while I listened and occasionally took a sip of my chocolate hazelnut gourmet flavored coffee.

“Sorry to interrupt you, Jerry, but rather than discuss this over the phone may I suggest you and your team come over first thing tomorrow morning and we can discuss this over coffee with my team. I have the best flavored coffee you can imagine.”

“OK, Frank, see you around 9 AM.”
