Day Brightener – Sometimes It Is Better Not To Ask

 

beerWoman: Do you drink beer?

Man: Yes

Woman: How many beers a day?

Man:  Usually about 3

Woman: How much do you pay per beer?

Man: $5.00 which includes a tip

(This is where it gets scary !)

Woman:  And how long have you been drinking?

Man:  About 20 years, I suppose

Woman:  So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5,400 …correct?

Man:  Correct

Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?

Man: Correct

Woman: Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Porsche?

Man: Do you drink beer?

Woman: No

Man: Where’s your Porsche?
