In 1965 Wayne Newton appeared on the Ed Sullivan TV variety show in New York with the Kim Sisters. (They were popular Korean singers at the time.) He asked one of them on a date, taking her to a Denny's on Broadway. After finishing the main course he realized that he didn't have enough cash on him to pay the bill.
Being on his first day with Miss Kim, he wasn't about to ask her for a loan, so he excused himself, went to a pay phone and called his brother. He explained the situation and told him to bring cash to the Broadway Denny's. The plan being that when his brother got there we would signal Wayne from afar and Wayne would secretly go and get the money from him.
To stall for time, Wayne kept the young woman entertained with conversation and dessert, all the while sweating it out, waiting for his brother to arrive.
To make a long horror story short, the brother was long overdue and Wayne was running out of small talk. He figured the girl was wondering why there were hanging around there for so long.
An hour later, Wayne finally sees his brother behind the girl at the back of the room waving. Feigning another trip to the restroom, he went over to his brother." Where have you been? Wayne asked, grabbing the cash out of his brother's hand.
"Do you know how many Denny's there in this area?" his brother asked. "There are five, all with three floors. I've been on every floor looking for you."
If you chuckle at this story, just put yourself in Wayne's place. Not so funny now.
That's why the James Bond Lifestyle Rule #7 states: I carry enough cash and credit to operate efficiently. As well as Rule # 1 & 21, I never run out of cash.
