THIS IS A CONVERSATION BETWEEN A MAN AND HIS WIFE.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SHE ASKS SEVEN
QUESTIONS, WHICH HE ANSWERS QUITE SIMPLY.
BUT THEN SHE IS SPEECHLESS AFTER
ANSWERING ONLY ONE QUESTION FROM HIM
I 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
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
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?
