Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls-Royce to a downtown New York City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5,000.  Taken aback, the loan officer requested collateral and so the man said, “Well then, here are the keys to my Rolls-Royce.”  The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank’s underground parking area for safe keeping, and gave the customer $5,000.

Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank’s doors and asked to settle up his loan and get his Rolls-Royce back.  “That will be five thousand dollars in principal, and fifteen dollars and forty cents in interest,” the loan officer said.  The customer wrote out a check and started to walk away.

Metal Sun“Wait, sir,” the loan officer said, “while you were gone I found out you are a millionaire.  Why in the world would you need to borrow five thousand dollars?”

The man smiled, “Where else could I park my Rolls-Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only fifteen dollars and forty cents?”
