An elderly woman walked into the Royal Bank one morning with a purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.
After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right)
an employee took the elderly woman to the president's office.
The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, '£165,000'.
The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save
so much money . The elderly woman replied that she made bets.
The president was surprised and asked, 'What kind of bets?'
The elderly woman replied, 'Well, I bet you £25,000 that your testicles are square.'
The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was impossible to win a bet like that.
The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president and said, 'Would you like to take my bet?'
'Certainly', replied the president. 'I bet you £25,000 that my testicles are not square.'
'Done', the elderly woman answered. 'But given the amount of money
involved, if you don't mind I would like to come back at 10 ' clock
tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness.' 'No problem', said the
president of the Bank confidently.
That night, the president
became very nervous about the bet and spent a long time in front of the
mirror examining his testicles, turning them this way and that, checking
them over again and again until he was positive that no one could
consider his testicles as square and reassuring himself that there was
no way he could lose the bet.
The next morning at exactly 10
o'clock the elderly woman arrived at the president's office with her
lawyer and acknowledged the £25,000 bet made the day before that the
president's testicles were square.
The president confirmed that the
bet was the same as the one made the day before. Then the elderly woman
asked him to drop his pants etc. so that she and her lawyer could see
The president was happy to oblige.
elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the
president if she could touch them. 'Of course', said the president.
'Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure.' The
elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president noticed
that the lawyer was banging his head against the wall. He asked the
elderly woman why he was doing that and she replied, 'Oh, it's probably
because I bet him £100,000 that around 10 o'clock in the morning I would
be holding the balls of the President of the Royal Bank !'
