A jet-set Lebanese gentleman parked his brand-new BMW in front of his
office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck
passed too close and completely tore off the door on the driver's side.
The Lebanese immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed the police, and
within minutes a policeman pulled up.
Before the policeman had a chance to ask any questions, the Lebanese started
screaming hysterically as some of his office colleagues reached the scene
too. His BMW, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely
ruined and would never be the same, no matter what the body shop did to it.
When the Lebanese finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the
policeman shook his head in disgust and disbelief... "I can't believe how
materialistic you Lebanese are," he said. "You are so focused on your
possessions that you don't notice anything else."
"How can you say such a thing?" asked the Lebanese.
The policeman replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is missing from
the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you.""Oh My God!" screamed the Lebanese. "Where's my Rolex?"
