A blonde walks into a bank in New York city and asks for the loan 
officer.  She says she's going to Europe on business for two weeks and 
needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some 
kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a 
new Rolls Royce parked on the street in front of the bank.  Everything 
checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the 

The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the 
blonde for using a $250,000 Rolls as collateral against a $5,000 loan. 
An employee of the bank then proceeds to drive the Rolls into the bank's 
underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the blonde returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, 
which comes to $15.41.  The loan 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 that you are a multimillionaire.  What puzzles us is, 
why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The blonde replied, "Where else in New York can I park my car for two 
weeks for only $15.41?"
