Daily Joke: Young Banker Decided to Get His First Tailor-Made Suit
Looking good and wearing nice clothes is one of the many ways to make a good impression on people, and the protagonist of today’s joke knows it firsthand.
One day, a young banker at the beginning of his career decided to order his first tailor-made suit, so he went to the most famous tailor in town.
Once there, he got measured and was asked to return in a week. The day came, and the excited banker went back to the store for his first fitting.
The young man looked tremendous and felt important and sure that he could complete any deal with the suit. While standing in front of the mirror, he reached down to put his hands in the pockets but, much to his surprise, the pants didn’t have pockets.
He asked the tailor about it, and he said, “I thought you were a banker.” “Well, I am!” responded the young man. The tailor then asked:
“Who has ever heard of a banker with his hands in his own pockets?"
This joke reminds us of a similar one that took place in a bank. One day, a man visits a bank to take out a $5,000 loan because he needed to get out of town for two weeks.
The loan officer told the man that he needed some form of security to receive the money. Without hesitation, the man gave the loan officer the keys to his car – a brand new Ferrari worth over $750,000.
After seeing such a car, the loan officer went to the back office to talk about the loan request with the bank's president. Initially, both bankers laughed at the man for leaving a +$750,000 car as security for a $5,000 loan.
A few minutes later, they consider that everything was okay, so they accepted the man’s loan request and gave him the money in no time.
For the next two weeks, the Ferrari was parked in the bank’s underground garage. Finally, the man returned and paid back the $5,000 plus interest, $15.65. The loan officer then told the man that the bank was pleased with how their deal worked out and added:
“However, we are a bit surprised because, while you were gone, we found out that you are a billionaire. Why would a billionaire bother to borrow $5,000?”
The man replied:
“Where else in Chicago can I park my car for two weeks for just $15.65 and expect it to be there when I return?”
