A young man walked into a jeweller’s shop
A young man walked into a jeweller's shop late one Friday, with a beautiful young lady at his side. "I'm looking for a special ring for my girlfriend," he said.
The jeweller looked through his stock, and took out an outstanding ring priced at $5,000. "I don't think you understand… I want something very unique," the young man said. At that, the jeweller fetched his special stock from the safe. The girls' eyes sparkled, and the young man said that he would take it.
"I'll pay by check but, of course, the bank would want to make sure that everything is in order, so I'll write a check and you can phone the bank tomorrow. Then I'll pick up the ring on Monday," the young man suggested. The jeweller agreed.
Monday morning a very pissed off jeweller phoned the man.
"You idiot, you lied. There's no money in that account!"
"I know, but can you imagine what a fantastic weekend I had?"
