I thought I'd start a jokes thread, well because, sometimes we all just need to laugh. This is a joke about something that is an everyday thing in my city . So here is your first laugh.
A blonde walks into a bank in Toronto and asks for the Loans Officer. She tells the Loans Officer that she is going on a business trip to Europe for two weeks and needs to borrow 5,000.00. The Loans Officer says that the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car was parked on the street outside the bank. She has the title, and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The Loans Officer and the bank employees all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a $250,000 Rolls Royce as collateral against a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank proceeds to drive the Rolls into the bank's underground parking garage and park it there.
Two weeks later, the blond returns, repays the $5,000 and interest, which comes to $15.41. The Loans Officer says, "Miss, 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 out that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000 ?"
The blonde replies..."Where else in Toronto can I park my car for two
weeks for only $15.41 and expect it still to be there when I return?"
