Riding back to the airport the driver told me that he was from Pakistan, that he had four children and had left his country where he was a bank manager and had is own business also. He had left Pakstan 13 years ago for a better life in Canada. Life was not better and he couldn't go bak since everything he had he had sold and today everything was costing four times more. He was waiting to marry his four children then he would go back to Pakistan with his wife of maybe not since his children were going to stay here.

"I was polishing a glass chandelier outside the men's loo and Jeremy Irons appeared. He was just becoming a big star with Brideshead [Revisited] at the time, and I loved Brideshead. He spoke first:
'I need to clean some glass at home. What are you using?'
I showed him some generic glass-cleaning product.
'Thank you very much,' he said.
I said, 'Excuse me, are you Jeremy Irons?'
He said, 'Yes.'
I said, 'Could I have your autograph?'
He said, 'Well, listen, I'll leave it for you at the front desk.'
I said, 'Oh, thank you very much.'
"And then I finished polishing my chandelier and I went up to the front desk where the concierge - a very pompous man in a brown and gold braid uniform - looked down his nose at me, because I was the lowest of the low in my white house coat, and said (very curtly), 'What do you want?'
I said, 'Did Jeremy Irons leave an autograph for me?'
'Yes (even more curtly). Here it is.'
And he passed me a piece of Brown's notepaper. I opened it. It said, 'Dear Ralph, Keep polishing. Jeremy Irons.'"
