From Gene in Michigan


A man walked into a bank and spoke to the loan officer.


“I am on my way for a two week trip to Europe.  I need to borrow $5,000 for the trip.  Can you help me?”


The loan officer replied, “I hope so.  Do you have any collateral for the loan?”


The man said, “Yes I do.  I paid cash for my new car.  It is in the parking lot.  It is a 2015 Mercedes Benz.  I will leave the car and title here as collateral for the loan.  Will that be sufficient?”


The loan officer agreed and processed the loan.


The man asked, “Since my car will be here, do you have anyone who could give me lift to the airport?  It is just a mile away.”


A young man who worked at the bank was asked to take the man to the airport.  So the two men hopped into the Mercedes and began the trip.


On the drive the young man said, “Sir, may I ask you a question?”


“Of course.” replied the man.


“Well, you are obviously a man of means.  Why would you borrow $5,000 for your trip to Europe when you really don’t need the money?” asked the young man.


The gentleman looked at the young man and smiled an said,“I will pay the loan off as soon as I return.  The interest on the two-week loan will be less than $20.  Where else can I park my car and have a driver take me to the airport for twenty bucks?”
