A white-haired old man walked into a jewelry store on a Friday, with a beautiful young lady at his side.
“I’m looking for a special ring for my girlfriend,” he said.
Our jeweler looked through our stock and took out an outstanding ring priced at $5,000.
“I don’t think you understand – I want something very unique,” the man said.
At that, our now very excited jeweler went and fetched one from his special stock from the safe.
“Here’s one stunning ring at $40,000.”
The girls eyes sparkled, and the man said that he would take it.
“How are you paying?” asked our jeweler.
“I’ll pay by check; but of course you will want to make sure that everything is in order, so I’ll write a check, you can phone the bank tomorrow, and then I’ll pick up the ring on Monday.”
Monday morning, our very disappointed jeweler phoned the man.
“You lied to me, there’s no money in that account.”
“I’m sorry about that, but can you imagine what a FANTASTIC weekend I had?”
