How one German saved from defaulting whole Greek village :))))))

It is a slow day in a little Greek Village.
The rain is beating down and the streets are deserted.
Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich German tourist is driving through the village, stops at the local hotel and lays a €100 note on the desk, telling the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one room in which to spend the night.The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs,
the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. 

The butcher takes the €100 note
and runs down the street
to repay his debt to the pig farmer. 

 The pig farmer takes the €100 note
and heads off
to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel.


The guy at the Farmers' Co-op 
takes the €100 note
and runs to pay his drinks bill at the taverna.

The publican slips the money along 
to the local prostitute drinking at the bar,
who has also been facing hard times
and has had to offer him "services" on credit.

The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner
with the €100 note. 

The hotel proprietor then places 
the €100 note
back on the counter
so the rich German will not suspect anything.

At that moment the German comes down the stairs,
picks up the €100 note,
states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, 
and leaves town.

No one produced anything - No one earned anything - However, the whole village is now out of debt and looking to the future with a lot more optimism.
