Ferrari

Summary – Happy Sunday everyone! :)

A man walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer.

He tells the loan officer that he is going to China on business for two weeks and needs to borrow USD $5,000. The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the man hands over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produces the title and everything checks out. The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

The bank’s president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the for using a USD $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a USD $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari into the bank’s underground
garage and parks it there. Two weeks later….

Two weeks later, the man returns, repays the USD $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, “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 multi-millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow USD $5,000?”

The man replies: “Where else in New York City can I park my car for 2 weeks for only USD$15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?”

This story has had so many version, the first one I read it’s about Phua Chu Kang parking car in Singapore :) Anyway I wonder if we can really do this? Kuala Lumpur is getting more expensive to park a car in.

————–Personal Note————-
Sometimes I always wish that the Doraemon technology exist, where we can shrink our car and put it in the pocket. Now it really is getting harder to find a parking spot in KL. Things is not getting any better I assure you.

How else do you think we can solve this problem?
