    Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls-Royce
    to a downtown New York 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 man said. The loan
    officer promptly had the car driven into the bank's underground
    parking garage for safe keeping, and gave him $5,000. Two weeks
    later, the man walked through the bank's doors, asked to settle
    up his loan and get his car back.

    "That will be $5,000 in principal, and $15.40 in interest," the
    loan officer said. The man wrote out a check and started to walk

    "Wait sir," the loan officer said, "while you were gone, I found
    out you are a multi-millionaire. Why in the world would you need
    to borrow $5,000?"

    The man smiled. "Where else could I park my Rolls-Royce in
    Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $15.40?"
