Beer Questions and Answers

 
The following was sent to me:

This is a CONVERSATION BETWEEN A MAN AND HIS WIFE.  

PLEASE NOTE THAT SHE ASKS SEVEN QUESTIONS, 

WHICH HE ANSWERS QUITE SIMPLY.  

BUT THEN SHE IS SPEECHLESS IN TRYING TO RESPOND TO 

ONLY  the 2nd QUESTION FROM HIM.

 

Wife:     DO YOU DRINK BEER?

Husband:    YES

  

Wife :      HOW MANY BEERS A DAY?

Husband:    USUALLY ABOUT THREE.

  

Wife:     HOW MUCH DO YOU PAY PER BEER?

Husband:    $5.00 WHICH INCLUDES A TIP

  

Wife:     AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING?

 Husband:    ABOUT 20 YEARS, I SUPPOSE.

Wife:     SO, A BEER COSTS $5 AND YOU HAVE THREE BEERS A DAY WHICH PUTS YOUR SPENDING EACH MONTH AT $450.  IN ONE YEAR, IT WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY $5400 CORRECT?

Husband:    CORRECT!

  

Wife:     IF IN 1 YEAR YOU SPEND $5400, NOT ACCOUNTING FOR INFLATION, THE PAST 20 YEARS PUTS YOUR SPENDING AT $108,000 CORRECT?

Husband:     CORRECT!

Wife:     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 AN AIRPLANE?

Husband:    DO YOU DRINK BEER?

Wife:    NO.

 

Husband:     WHERE'S YOUR AIRPLANE?

Funny beer video here for you too!  No questions asked nor answered.
