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. The
old man said, 'No; I'd like to see something more special.'
At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and
brought another ring out. '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. I'll pick the ring
up Monday afternoon.'
Monday morning, the jeweler phoned the old man. 'There's
no money in that account.'
'I know,' said the old man, 'But let me tell you about my weekend!'
