Have We Seen This Somewhere

Post by hawkeye » 27 May 2011, 07:12

A slightly balding, white haired man walked into a jewelry store one Friday evening with a very beautiful, much younger woman 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 man said, “No, I'd like to see something even more special.”

At that, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought out another ring. “Here's a stunning ring at just $40,000”, the jeweler said. The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. Upon seeing this reaction, the man said, “We'll take it!”

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, “I’ll pay by check. I know you’ll want to make sure the check is good, so I'll write the check now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds. I'll stop in to pick up the ring on Monday afternoon.”

On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said, “There’s no money in that account!”

“I know”, said the old man, “but let me tell you about my great weekend!”

Dusty, that's called "flim-flamming" here in the states ! ! I have a friend who excelles in that fashion. He asked me once, "Look-a=here ... you got two ten dollar bills for a five?" I reached for my wallet and had it open before I realized what he had said. We are all gullable at times.
