The height of miserliness!
A very successful man parked his brand new Porsche Car at the front of the office, ready to show it off to his colleagues.
As he got out, a truck came along too close to the kerb and completely tore off the driver's door. Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Porsche, his lights flashing.
But, before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the man started screaming hysterically about how his Porsche,which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how hard the body shop tries to make it new again.
After the man finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disgust and disbelief.
'I can't believe how materialistic you are,' he said.
'You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most important things in life.'
'How can you say such a thing?' asked the man.
The cop replied, 'Don't you even realize that your left arm is missing? It got ripped off when the truck hit you!!!'
'Oh, my GOD!' screamed the man and finally said----
'My ROLEX watch' is gone too.
