A successful trader parked his brand-new Porsche in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and tore off the door on the drivers side.
The trader immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up. Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the stockbroker started screaming hysterically. His Porsche, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined.
When the trader finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief.
“I can not believe how materialistic you traders are,” the cop said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you dont notice anything else.”
“How can you say such a thing?” asked the trader.
The cop replied, “Dont you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you.”
“My God!” screamed the trader. “My Rolex!”
