All About Beer

A Woman gets out of her Prius, walks into a bar and sits down next to a guy drinking a beer.

Woman: I see you drink beer.

Man: Yup.

Woman: How many beers a day?

Man: Usually about 3.

Woman: How much do you pay for each beer?

Man: About $5.00 including the tip.

Woman: And how long have you been drinking?

Man: Maybe 20 years, I guess.

Woman: So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450. So in one year, it would be approximately $5400 correct?

Man: Yup.

Woman: For each year that you spend $5,400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?

Man: Yup.

Woman: Did 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 bought a Ferrari?

Man: Do you drink beer?

Woman: No.

Man: Where’s your Ferrari?

  1. He has a very good point there...lol I personally wouldn't drink beer, can't stand the taste or even the smell of it. I did however drink it back in the day before I was legally allowed to

    1. About the only time I'll drink a beer is with pizza. One cold beer with my pizza. Very rare. :)

  6. I've noticed how judgmental those who drive a Prius can be...about beer, about economy, about life.

  8. I don't trust Prius drivers. Probably because they vote for people who ruined the Honda Civic. Did you know a Honda Civic 40 years ago could get 50 miles to the gallon? Progress has brought us the Prius. c-)

    1. Yep, the Honda Civic was the most economical way back in the day. :)

  17. Hi Sandee, I was just thinking I should show your post to my husband when I read the last line, which would most definitely be his argument. Who needs a Ferrari anyway?

  18. Cute response. I gave up beer because of the carbs, but when I drank it, I used to drink at home... much cheaper that way. No way I'd have a Ferrari.
