1. A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money.
The old guy fingered his expensive wool vest and said, “Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel.”
“I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents.”
“The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I’d accumulated a fortune of $9.80.”
“After that,” the old rich man continued, “I invested the $9.80 into a market stall so I could polish and display a lot more apples. I began making about $50 a month from then on.”
“Then my wife’s father died and left us two million dollars.”

2. An old man walked into the bank and stood in the queue, when it was his turn he handed his bank card to a bank teller and said,
“I would like to withdraw for £10.”
The teller told him,
“For withdrawals less than £100 please use the ATM.”
The old man wanted to know the reason for this.
The teller returned his bank card and told him,
“These are the bank’s rules & rules are rules, now sir, please leave if there is nothing else I can help you with, there is a queue behind you and you will find the ATM outside.”
The old man remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the teller and said,
“yes, can I withdraw all my money?”
The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance.
She shook her head, leaned over and whispered,
“But sir you have £80,000 in your account and the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come back tomorrow?”
The old man then asked,
“How much can I withdraw today.”
The teller told him any amount up to £5000
“Well, better give me £5000 just now”,
The teller then handed it very friendly and respectfully to him.
The old man put £10 in his wallet, stood a couple of seconds before asking teller to deposit £4990 back into his account.
