Before going to Europe on business, a lawyer drove his Rolls-Royce to a downtown NY City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5, 000.
The loan officer, taken aback, requested collateral. “Well, then, here are the keys to my Rolls-Royce”, the lawyer said.
The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank’s underground parking for safe keeping, and gave him $5, 000.

The lawyer smiled. “Where else could I park my Rolls-Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $20. 30?
