The Blonde and the Bank
A blonde walks into a bank in Johannesburg and asks for the loans department. She says she’s going to Europe on business for three weeks and needs to borrow R10 000.
The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank, she has the papers and everything checks out.
The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank manager and staff all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a R500 000 Rolls as collateral against a R10 000 loan. An employee of the bank then proceeds to drive the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there.
Two weeks later, the blonde returns, repays the R10 000 and the interest, which comes to R141.66.
The bank manager says, “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 R10 000?”
The blond replies … “Where else in Johannesburg can I park my car for two weeks for only R141.66 and expect it to be there when I return?”
