Who was the smartest person you ever met in the office? I'm not talking about necessarily the most successful person, but the person who had the most natural intelligence of anyone you've worked with. We've all encountered extremely smart people, but some have great work ethics while others don't, some are socially awkward and others seem to have the gifts of a brain and social skills that makes them even more skillful. Does anyone have any good stories?

Marcus Lemonis came to my old office once. He's smart. Met a few board members. They were smart. Nobody else in my office was smart. I'm glad to be out of there.


Look at all these wannabe richies hating on an expensive salad.
