Fortunately, there are still times when the banks are taken:..A blonde walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. .She told him she was going to Europe on business for two weeks and needed a $5,000 loan. .The bank officer told her the bank would need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde handed over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. .The car was parked on the street in front of the bank, and when the title was checked it was confirmed the blonde owned the vehicle. .Naturally the bank agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank’s president and its officerd all enjoyed a good laugh over the foolishness of the blonde for using a $250,000 Rolls as collateral against a $5,000 loan. .The Rolls was driven into the bank’s underground parking garage..
Two weeks later, the blonde returned, repayed the $5,000 principal and the interest, which came to $15.41. .The loan officer said, “Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled.. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?” .The blond replied………………….“Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?”
