|BONUS RECIPES (Sorry,
not theme related):
|A man was standing in a line at a bank to
withdraw cash. After an hour his turn came and he gave his bank details
to the cashier. The cashier said, "I am sorry, sir. There's no cash."
Fuming with anger, the man rushed to the manager's room and yelled at him. "You are a big bank and you don't have cash? Close my account!" he demanded.
The manager pacified the man and rushed to the cashier. Minutes later he returned and the man asked, "Did you bring my cash or you are still running out of it?"
The manager replied, "Sir, we have enough cash. Unfortunately, your account does not."
