A hilarious story is going viral this week that serves as a reminder that wisdom comes with age!

A balding man with white hair recently walked into a jewelry store in Chebacco Lake, Florida with a gorgeous young woman at his side. He told the jeweler that he wanted to buy a special ring for his younger girlfriend, and the jeweler went to look for one in his stock. He returned with a $5,000 ring.

“No, I’d like to see something more special,” the man said when he saw it.

The jeweler went back to his stock and returned with another ring.

“Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000,” the jeweler said. The young woman’s eyes sparkled as soon as she saw the ring, and her body started trembling with excitement. The old man noticed this right away and said, “We’ll take it.”

The jeweler asked the man how he wanted to pay, and he responded, “By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I’ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.”

When Monday morning rolled around, the jeweler angrily called the man.

“There’s no money in that account,” he told him.

“I know,” said the old man. “But let me tell you about my GREAT WEEKEND!!”

LOL! That’s one smart older man! He clearly had picked up some very handy skills during his long life!
