A Question of Values

A young man was speeding along the highway in his new Mercedes when he missed a curve, flew over a cliff, and totaled his car.

A passing motorist found him mangled and bleeding.

“My Mercedes!” sobbed the man. “My beautiful car… my CD player… my cellular phone! Gone! All of them gone!”

“Good grief, man!” said the motorist. “How can you cry over a silly car when your left arm has been severed above the elbow!”

The injured man looked down. “My Rolex!’” he wailed, “my beautiful gold Rolex.”
