The old lady in the bank

A little old lady walked into the head branch of the Chase Manhattan

Bank holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young man

at the window that she wished to take the 3 million she had in the

bag and open an account with the bank. She said that first, though,

she wished to meet the president of Chase Manhattan Bank due to the

amount of money involved.

The teller seemed to think that was a reasonable request and after

opening the paper bag and seeing the bundles of 1,000 bills which

amounted to right around 3 million, telephoned the banks secretary

to obtain an appointment for the lady.

The lady was escorted upstairs and ushered into the presidents

office. Introductions were made and she stated that she would like

to get to know the people she did business with on a more personal

level. The bank president then asked her where she came into such a

large amount of money. Was it an inheritance? he asked. No. she

answered. Was it from playing the stock market? No. she


He was quiet for a minute, trying to think of where this little old

lady could possibly come into 3 million. I bet. she stated. You

bet? repeated the bank president. As in horses? No. she

replied, I bet people.

Seeing his confusion, she explained that she justs bets on different

things with different people. All of a sudden she said, Ill bet

you $25,

000.00 that by 10:00 oclock tomorrow morning, your balls will be


The bank president figured she must be off her rocker and decided to

take her up on the bet. He didnt see how he could lose. For the

rest of the day, the bank president was very careful. He decided to

stay 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 to

make sure everything was okay. There was no difference- he looked

the same as he always had. He went to work and waited for the

little old lady to come in at 10:00 oclock, humming as he went. He

knew this would be a good day- how often do you get handed $25,

000.00 for doing nothing. At 10:00 oclock sharp the little old

lady was shown into his office. With her was a younger man. When he

inquired as to the mans purpose for being there, she informed him

that he was her lawyer and she always took him along when there was

this much money involved.

Well, she asked, what about our bet? I dont know how to tell

you this, he replied, but I am the same as Ive always been only


000.00 richer. The lady seemed to accept this, but requested that

she be able to see for herself. The bank president thought this was

reasonable and dropped his trousers. She instructed him to bend over

and then grabbed a hold of him. Sure enough, everything was fine.

The bank president then looked up and saw her lawyer standing across

the room banging his head against the wall.

What wrong with him? he inquired. Oh him, she replied, I bet

him $100,

000.00 that by 10:00 oclock this morning that Id have the

president of Chase Manhattan Bank by the balls.
