This is a conversation between a man and his wife.
 
 
 
Woman: Do you drink beer?
 
 
 
Man: Yes
 
 
 
Woman: How many beers a day?
 
 
 
Man: Usually about three
 
 
 
Woman: How much do you pay per beer?
 
 
 
Man: $5.00, which includes a tip.
 
 
 
Woman: And how long have you been drinking?
 
 
 
Man: About 20 years, I suppose
 
 
 
Woman: 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?
 
 
 
Man: Correct
 
 
 
Woman: If, in 1 year, you spend $5400, 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 an airplane?
 
 
 
Man: Do you drink beer?
 
 
 
Woman: No.
 
 
 
Man: Where is your airplane?
