businessman walks into a bank
in a city centre and asks for a $100 loan. He offers
his luxury car as collateral. The
collateral is too good, and the bank manager
approves the loan.
A year later, the
businessman comes back. He repays the loan and the
10% interest and is ready to collect his car.
Finally, the puzzled bank manager dares to ask
him: "Excuse me, sir, could you tell me: did you
really need that $100 so badly? In order to get
the money, you left your luxury car with us for
a whole year!"
replied, "That's simple – just
think outside the box: where else in the
can I find such a great parking place for just
$10 a year?"
