This a conversation between a man and his wife
. Please note that she
asks five or six questions which he answered quite simply, but then
she is speechless after answering only one question.
l bet this happens more often than not to most husbands out there:
Woman: Do you drink beer?
Woman: How many beers a day?
Man: Usually about three
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 three beers a day which
puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be
approximately $5400 correct?
Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the
past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000 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 an airplane?
Man: Do you drink beer?
Man: Where is your airplane?
