Something to Ponder
Lady: Do you drink?
Lady: How much a day?
Man: Three 6 packs
Lady: How much do you pay per 6 pack?
Man: about $10.00
Lady: And how long have you been drinking?
Man: 15 years
Lady: So one 6 pack costs $10.00 and you have three 6 packs a day which puts your
spending each month at $900. In one year, it would be $10,800 correct?
Lady: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 not accounting for inflation, the past
15 years puts your spending at $162,000 correct?
Lady: Do you know that if you hadn't drank, that money could have been put
in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound
interest for the past 15 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Man: Do you drink?
Man: Where's your Ferrari?
