A white-haired guy walked into a jeweler's shop one Friday, with a beautiful young blonde on his side.
"I'm looking for a very special ring for my girlfriend," he said.
The jeweler looks through his stock, and takes out an outstanding ring priced at $5,000.
"I don't think you understand," he says. "I want something really unique," says the man.
At that, the excited jeweler goes and gets his special stock from the safe.
"Here's one stunning ring at $45,000," he says, dollar signs in his eyes.
The girl's eyes sparkled, and the customer said that he would take it, adding "I'll pay by check, but of course you and the bank will want to make sure that everything is in order. So I'll write the check, you can phone the bank, and then I'll fetch the ring on Monday."
Monday morning a very angry jeweler phones the man. "You bastard!!! You lied!! There's no money at all in that account!"
"I know," said the man, "Sorry. But can you imagine what a fantastic weekend I had?"
