Men strike one

If bread be the sustenance in life bake on :character-oldtimer:


This is a conversation between a man and a woman.

Woman:​ ​ ​Do you drink beer?

Man: Yes

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

Woman: ​ ​And how long have you been drinking?​​

Man: ​ ​About 20 years, I suppose.​​


Woman:​​​ So a beer costs $5.00 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450.00. In one year, it would be approximately $5,400.00 correct?​

​Man: ​ ​ ​Correct​

​Woman: ​ ​If in one year you spend $5400.00, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000.00 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 Ferrari?​

​Man: ​​ ​Do you drink beer?​
​​
Woman: ​​ ​No.​
​​
Man: ​​ ​Where's your Ferrari?​​ :nahnahnah :heeheehee :heeheehee
