An elderly man with his trophy girlfriend walked into a jewellers and asked to see engagement rings. The jeweller showed him rings priced at about £4,000. He was astonished when the man turned up his nose and asked to see something with a bit more class. Delighted he went to the safe and got out rings valued at £40,000 each.
The elderly man and his girlfriend took some time looking before picking one. He explained that he needed to pay by cheque and so wouldn’t be picking up the ring until the following week after the cheque had cleared.
On the following Tuesday the jeweller rang him and, in an angry voice, said, “Your cheque bounced!”
“I know. But believe me I had a wonderful weekend.”
