Laughter: The Universal Language – #186

Hard work pays off? πŸ˜€

Piggy Bank

A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money.

The old guy fingered his worsted wool vest and said, β€œWell, 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 week, by the end of which I’d accumulated a fortune of $6.40!

And then my wife’s father died and left us two million dollars.”
