Joke Tuesday.

Subject: FW: Logic.

Woman: 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 $5,400, 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 Ferrari?

Man: Do you drink beer?

Woman: No

Man: Where’s your Ferrari?

Go figure, ladies!

John, I've no doubt mentioned this before (beer does me brain in) but whenever I comment on your blog it always refers to my old (closed) blog. My current blog is http://theothersideofparis.wordpress.com/ (as you know) but Blogger won't let me change that in the comments section. Not important just saying!

LOL....The idea that someone could save that much money is beyond belief---But I guess it is true!

The fun you have having a drink with friends is priceless. IMO.
