An elderly woman walked into the Royal Bank of Scotland one morning with a purse full of money.
After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the CEO’s office.
The CEO of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, ‘£165,000,000’.
The CEO was surprised and asked, ‘What kind of bets?’
The elderly woman replied, ‘Well, I bet you £250,000 that your testicles are square.’
The CEO 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 CEO and said, ‘Would you like to take my bet?’
‘Certainly’, replied the CEO. ‘I bet you £250,000 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 o’clock tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness.’
That night, the CEO 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 CEO’s office with her lawyer and acknowledged the £250,000 bet made the day before that the CEO’s testicles were square.
The CEO confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his trousers and pants so that she and her lawyer could see clearly.
The CEO was happy to oblige.
The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the CEO if she could touch them. ‘Of course’, said the CEO. ‘Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure.’
The elderly woman did so with a little smile.
