A woman walks into a bank in London before going on vacation and asks for a £5,000 loan.

The Manager asks, “Okay, miss, is there anything you would like to use as collateral?”

The woman says, “Yes, of course. I’ll use my Rolls Royce.”

The banker, stunned, asks, “A £250,000 Rolls Royce? Really?”

The woman is completely positive. She hands over the keys, as the bankers and loan officers laugh at her. They check her credentials, make sure she is the title owner. Everything checks out. They park it in their underground garage.

When she comes back after two weeks, she pays off the £5,000 loan as well as the £15.41 interest.

The loan officer says, “Miss, we are very appreciative of your business with us, but I have one question. We looked you up and found out that you are a multi-millionaire. Why would you want to borrow £5,000?”

The woman replies, “Where else in central London can I park a Rolls Royce safely for two weeks for only £15.41
