The Loan


   A businessman walks into a bank in New York and asks for the loan
   officer. He says 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 businessman hands over the keys to a Rolls-Royce 
   parked on the street in front of the bank.  Everything checks 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 businessman 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 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 businessman replied: "Where else in New York can I park my car 
   for two weeks for 15 bucks?"
