    A little old lady walked into the head branch of the Chase Manhattan
    Bank holding a large paper bag in her hand. She told the young man
    at the window that she wished to take the 3 million she had in the
    bag and open an account with the bank. She said that first, though,
    she wished to meet the president of Chase Manhattan Bank due to the
    amount of money involved.

    The teller seemed to think that was a reasonable request and after
    opening the paper bag and seeing the bundles of 1,000 bills which
    amounted to right around 3 million, telephoned the bank's secretary
    to obtain an appointment for the lady.

    The lady was escorted upstairs and ushered into the president's
    office. Introductions were made and she stated that she would like
    to get to know the people she did business with on a more personal
    level. The bank president then asked her where she came into such a
    large amount of money. "Was it an inheritance?" he asked. "No." she
    answered. "Was it from playing the stock market?" "No." she
    replied.

    He was quiet for a minute, trying to think of where this little old
    lady could possibly come into 3 million. "I bet." she stated. "You
    bet?" repeated the bank president. "As in horses?" "No." she
    replied, "I bet people."

    Seeing his confusion, she explained that she justs bets on different
    things with different people. All of a sudden she said, "I'll bet
    you $25,000.00 that by 10:00 o'clock tomorrow morning, your balls will be
    square."

    The bank president figured she must be off her rocker and decided to
    take her up on the bet. He didn't see how he could lose. For the
    rest of the day, the bank president was very careful. He decided to
    stay home that evening and take no chances; there was $25,000.00 at stake.

    When he got up in the morning and took his shower, he checked to
    make sure everything was okay. There was no difference- he looked
    the same as he always had. He went to work and waited for the
    little old lady to come in at 10:00 o'clock, humming as he went. He
    knew this would be a good day- how often do you get handed $25,
    000.00 for doing nothing. At 10:00 o'clock sharp the little old
    lady was shown into his office. With her was a younger man. When he
    inquired as to the man's purpose for being there, she informed him
    that he was her lawyer and she always took him along when there was
    this much money involved.

    "Well," she asked, "what about our bet?" "I don't know how to tell
    you this," he replied, "but I am the same as I've always been only
    $25,000.00 richer." The lady seemed to accept this, but requested that
    she be able to see for herself. The bank president thought this was
    reasonable and dropped his trousers. She instructed him to bend over
    and then grabbed a hold of him. Sure enough, everything was fine.
    The bank president then looked up and saw her lawyer standing across
    the room banging his head against the wall.

    "What' wrong with him?" he inquired. "Oh him," she replied, "I bet
    him $100,000.00 that by 10:00 o'clock this morning that I'd have the
    president of Chase Manhattan Bank by the balls."
