Deceptive clothes. A woman wearing a dress holding her faded and worn plainly dressed, got off the train in Boston, and walked timidly toward the Chief's office at Harvard University. They asked for an appointment.
The secretary got the impression that they are the village, hick, so there can be no business at Harvard and probably not even deserve to be in Cambridge.

"We want to see the president," the man said softly.
"He's a busy day," the secretary snapped.
"We will wait," replied the woman.
For 4 hours, the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. But it's not. The secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to report to the leaders.
