Diogenes

When famed troll and philosopher Diogenes the Cynic was being sold as a slave, he listed his specialty as "ruling men." He subsequently pointed to Xeniades, a wealthy Corinthian and said, “Sell me to this man; he needs a master.” He was sold on the spot and became a tutor to Xeniades' sons.
