Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go shopping in Beverly Hills? When it comes to shopping, Beverly Hills is something else. The shops on Rodeo Drive would be more than many of us could afford. Even just walking through the door of some of them would be enough to break the bank I am sure.
So, a wealthy looking man and a beautiful woman were out shopping one Saturday in Hollywood and walked into a very posh Beverly Hills furrier (that’s a shop that sells furs to the less educated of us).
“Please can you show the lady your finest mink!” the fellow exclaimed.
So, the owner of the shop went out the back and came out with an absolutely gorgeous full-length mink coat.
As the lady tried it on, the furrier discreetly whispered to the man, “Ah, sir, that particular fur goes for $65,000”.
“That’s not a problem! I’ll write you a check!” the man replied.
“Very good, sir”, said the shop owner. “Today is Saturday. You may come by on Monday to pick it up, after your check has cleared”.
So, the man and woman left the shop, the woman with a huge smile on her face.
On Monday, the man returned to the shop.
The store owner was outraged: “How dare you show your face in here?! That check you gave us bounced. There wasn’t a single penny in your bank account!!”
“I just had to come by”, grinned the man, “to thank you for what has been the most wonderful weekend of my life!”
Now that’s what I call a cunning plan. Even Baldrick from Blackadder, the master of cunning plans, would be proud.
