Great Weekend

An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry store this past 
Friday evening 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 looked through his stock and brought 
out a $5,000 ring.

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

At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and 
brought another ring over.  'Here's a stunning ring at only 
$40,000 the jeweler said.  The lady's eyes sparkled and her 
whole body trembled with excitement.  The old man seeing 
this said, 'We'll take it.'

The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old 
man stated, 'by check’.  I know you need to make sure my check 
is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to 
verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.'

On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man 
and said 'There's no money in that account.'

'I know,' said the old man, 'But let me tell you about 
MY GREAT WEEKEND!'

  9. Old "Playas" never die. Their prey just gets younger and younger. I know--I know--I'm sick.

  12. I wonder if it would work the same if the ploy was breast augmentation treatments instead of a ring?

    The check bounced but, man o man, so did her boobs.

  16. Admiral, you just need a little trickery and staying power, and not necessarily in that order.
