The old lady in the bank

A little old lady walked into the head branch of the Chase ManhattanBank holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young manat the window that she wished to take the 3 million she had in thebag and open an account with the bank. She said that first, though,she wished to meet the president of Chase Manhattan Bank due to theamount of money involved.The teller seemed to think that was a reasonable request and afteropening the paper bag and seeing the bundles of 1,000 bills whichamounted to right around 3 million, telephoned the bank’s secretaryto obtain an appointment for the lady.The lady was escorted upstairs and ushered into the president’soffice. Introductions were made and she stated that she would liketo get to know the people she did business with on a more personallevel. The bank president then asked her where she came into such alarge amount of money. “Was it an inheritance?” he asked. “No.” sheanswered. “Was it from playing the stock market?” “No.” shereplied.He was quiet for a minute, trying to think of where this little oldlady could possibly come into 3 million. “I bet.” she stated. “Youbet?” repeated the bank president. “As in horses?” “No.” shereplied, “I bet people.”Seeing his confusion, she explained that she justs bets on differentthings with different people. All of a sudden she said, “I’ll betyou $25,000.00 that by 10:00 o’clock tomorrow morning, your balls will besquare.”The bank president figured she must be off her rocker and decided totake her up on the bet. He didn’t see how he could lose. For therest of the day, the bank president was very careful. He decided tostay home that evening and take no chances; there was $25,000.00 at stake.When he got up in the morning and took his shower, he checked tomake sure everything was okay. There was no difference- he lookedthe same as he always had. He went to work and waited for thelittle old lady to come in at 10:00 o’clock, humming as he went. Heknew this would be a good day- how often do you get handed $25,000.00 for doing nothing. At 10:00 o’clock sharp the little oldlady was shown into his office. With her was a younger man. When heinquired as to the man’s purpose for being there, she informed himthat he was her lawyer and she always took him along when there wasthis much money involved.”Well,” she asked, “what about our bet?” “I don’t know how to tellyou this,” he replied, “but I am the same as I’ve always been only$25,000.00 richer.” The lady seemed to accept this, but requested thatshe be able to see for herself. The bank president thought this wasreasonable and dropped his trousers. She instructed him to bend overand then grabbed a hold of him. Sure enough, everything was fine. The bank president then looked up and saw her lawyer standing acrossthe room banging his head against the wall.”What’ wrong with him?” he inquired. “Oh him,” she replied, “I bethim $100,000.00 that by 10:00 o’clock this morning that I’d have thepresident of Chase Manhattan Bank by the balls.”
