The Ring

An older white haired man walked into a jewelry store one evening recently with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

The jeweler eyed the man for a few seconds then looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.

The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.'

The jeweler happily dug to his special stock and brought another ring over.

“Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000” - the jeweler said.

The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.

The man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and my friend stated,

'By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and

you call the bank Monday to verify the funds; We'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.'

On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the man and said 'Sir...There's

no money in that account.

''I know: the man responded.....'But let me tell you about my weekend.'
