Superficial Injuries

A banker was opening the door of his BMW when suddenly another car came along and hit the door, ripping it off completely. When the police arrived at the scene, the banker was hopping up and down with rage, complaining bitterly about the damage to his precious BMW.

"Officer, look what they've done to my car!" he shrieked.

"You bankers are so materialistic, you make me sick!" retorted the officer, "You're so worried about your stupid BMW, that you didn't even notice that your left arm was ripped off!"

"Oh no...." replied the banker, looking down and noticing for the first time the bloody stump where his left arm had once been. "Where's my Rolex?"

Moral of the Story: Your worth should be measured in terms of personal well being and not superficial trappings.


Bankers: they're not the only superficial people out there (and not all of them are superficial), but they are easy to make fun of.
