HAVE A LAUGH
A YUPPIE walked into a bank in Sydney’s King’s Cross and requested a $5000 dollar loan for an upcoming trip out of the country. The loans manager agreed but told the yuppie he must give them some collateral before giving him the money.
“No problem. Here’s the title to my Rolls Royce, it’s parked out front.”
The loans manager gladly accepted and gave the young man the loan, arranging for it to be placed in the bank’s secured parking area.
As the yuppie departed, the bank employees all laughed about how he’d left such an expensive car as collateral for such a small bank loan.
After a week had passed the yuppie returned to the bank to repay the loan and the interest. The interest came to $19.53. The loans manager asked him: “Sir, why did you need the $5000? We checked into your account and saw that you are a very wealthy man.”
The yuppie replied, “Where else in the middle of Sydney can I park my car for a week for only $19 and know that it will be safe for when I get back?”
WHILE working as a radiology technician in a hospital emergency room, I took x-rays of a trauma patient. I brought the films to our radiologist, who studied the multiple fractures of the femurs and pelvis.
“What happened to this patient?” he asked in astonishment.
“He fell out of a tree,” I said. The radiologist wanted to know what the patient was doing up a tree.
“I’m not sure, but his paperwork states he works for Bob’s Expert Tree Service.”
Gazing intently at the x-rays, the radiologist blinked and said, “Cross out ‘Expert.’”
