The lighter side of finances.

I had once heard a joke when I was in college, it was kind of sexist and inappropriate and it seemed that every business financial student other than me, thought it was funny.  I was of course the only female in the class.  The ending was slightly different at the time and I never really saw the humor in it until I decided to make my own version of the joke. Now I do think it is funny, more appropriate and worth sharing.sg_partners_marriage

Once upon a time there was an investor who had three girlfriends, but he didn’t know which one he should marry. They were all equally beautiful and intelligent. He loved each of them. He finally realized that he had to make a choice and he thought of a great way to make this decision.  He would give each girlfriend $5000 and see how each of them would  spend it.

The first girlfriend decided that she would go out and get a total make over with the money.  She bought  new clothes, received a new hairdo, manicure, pedicure, and tells the investor upon returning home;  “I spent the money so I could look pretty for you, because I love you so much.”

The second one went out and purchased a new set of  golf clubs, an IPAD, a 3D television, and a stereo and gave them to him as presents. She boastfully stated “I bought these gifts for you with the money because I love you so much.”

The third one takes the $5000 and invests it in the stock market, doubles her investment, returns the $5000 to the man and reinvests the rest.  She says, “I am investing the rest of the money because I love you so much.”  In fact, I love you so much that I have decided since your other girlfriends are so expensive, you might need it.
