An old man walks into a jewelry store with a golddigger on his arm. She appears to be half his age. The salesperson asks the older gentlemen, “Can I interest you in some jewelry today?” The old man says, “Yes, I’m looking for a special ring for my girlfriend.” The salesperson holds up a ring and says, “Here’s one for five thousand dollars.” “I don’t think you understand”, says the old man. “I want something very special.” The salesperson says, “Here’s a stunning ring for forty thousand dollars.” The old man looks at the huge smile on his girlfriend’s face. He says, “We’ll take it.” “How will you be paying?”, says the salesperson. The old man says, “By check. I know you need to make sure the check is good so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds. I’ll pick up the ring Monday afternoon.” On Monday morning, the salesperson calls the old man. The salesperson says, “There’s no money in that account”. The old man says, “I know...but can you imagine the weekend I had?”
