The Loan officer said the bank would need some kind of security for such a loan. So the gentleman handed over the keys to a new Rolls Royce parked on the street in front of the bank. Everything checked out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drove the Car into the bank’s underground garage and parked it there.
Two weeks later, the gentleman returned, repaid the 5,000 Pounds and the interest, which came to around 20.58 pounds. The loan officer said, “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 Pounds?”
The gentleman replied, “Where else in London can I park my car for two weeks for 20 bucks?”
