An Indian walks into a New York City bank and asks to see the loan officer. He tells loan officer that he is going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan, so the man hands over the keys of a new Rolls Royce car parked on the street in front of the bank.
Everything is checked out,and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the man returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest,which comes to $15.41.
The loan officer says, “We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are little puzzled.
While you were away, we checked you out and found that u are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000?”
The Indian replied, “Where else in New York can I park my car for two weeks for 15 bucks?”
