Parking

[ Just wanted to remind everyone to send in the completed survey.  A little ]
[ over 330 have answered so far, so that still leaves 1000 unaccounted for! ]

  Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls-Royce to a
  downtown NY 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
  for safe keeping, and gave him $5,000.

  Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank's doors, and 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 away.

  "Wait sir", the loan officer said, "while you were gone, I found out
  you are a 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?"
