This clip from Oceans 12 is great. Matt Daimon’s character, an aspiring con artist, tries to prove himself – that he can hang with the best of professional criminals. Pitt, Clooney and the other guy play a practical joke on him during a business negotiation.
This is how it can feel when in a conversation with highly knowledgeable, senior people in a company. I’m getting better these days, but can still lose track of what is salient in a fast paced conversation with experienced pros.
