Never underestimate a Redneck.

Saturday, March 28, 2009

A fellow from Tennessee walked into a bank in New York

City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan

officer that he was going to Bakersfield on business for two

weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a

depositor of the bank.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some

form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over

the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street

in front of the bank. The Redneck produced the title and

everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the

car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to

charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all
enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from the south for using
a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An

employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the

bank's private underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000
and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, 'Sir,

we are very happy to have had your business, and this

transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little

puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found

that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why

would you bother to borrow $5,000?'

The good 'ole Tennessee boy replied, 'Where else in

New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only
$23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?'

His name was BUBBA...

    The good ole' boy from Tennessee pretty smart huh! That just goes to show that even though us Tennesseans (I am from TN) may have a reputation as rednecks and not being too smart--not always the case! Can't always judge a book by its cover. emoticon
