Woman: Do you drink beer?
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 $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 a Ferrari?
Man: Do you drink beer?
Man: Where's your Ferrari?
