A Clever Old Man

An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening with a beautiful young gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring and showed it to him.

The old man said, "I don´t think you understand, I want something very special."

At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. "Here´s a stunning ring at only $40,000", the jeweler said.

The young lady´s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.

The old man seeing this said, "We´ll take it."

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, by check. "I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I´ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I´ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon," he said.

Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweler phoned the old man. "There´s no money in that account."

"I know", said the old man, "but can you imagine the weekend I had?"
