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