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?

    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

      About the only time I'll drink a beer is with pizza. One cold beer with my pizza. Very rare. πŸ™‚

    Heeheehee! My beer money went for car repairs!

      I bought some non-alcoholic beer for a buddy yesterday. That's about it for us and beer around here. πŸ™‚

    Fantastic Ferrari…
    Have a great day!

    Yeah- really! She should have just minded her own business! Good one! Have a great weekend! Hugs to you and Zane!

      Perhaps she was just being a pill. Some people just can't help themselves. πŸ™‚

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

  7. May 7, 2016 at 8:18 am

    I do not drink beer and do not have a Ferrari. He he! Have a beautiful day!

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:35 pm

      I don't want a Ferrari either. πŸ™‚

    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-)

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:35 pm

      Yep, the Honda Civic was the most economical way back in the day. πŸ™‚

    LOL!!! What Ferrari? πŸ™‚ Happy Mother's Day to you, dear Sandee.

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:36 pm

      Thanks Linda. You have a happy Mother's Day too. πŸ™‚

  10. May 7, 2016 at 8:40 am

    Serves her right lmao

    Have a ferrarilesstastic day Sandee :-h

      Yes, she was sticking her nose where it didn't belong for sure. πŸ™‚

    Hard to explain the female mind at times! Little wonder I drive a compact!

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:37 pm

      Sometimes it's hard to explain the male mind at times too. πŸ™‚

  12. May 7, 2016 at 10:27 am

    Good one πŸ™‚

  13. May 7, 2016 at 10:32 am

    Good conversation. It is difficult to make men understand what they do…

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:37 pm

      And even more difficult to make women understand what men do. πŸ™‚

  14. May 7, 2016 at 11:22 am

    Beer is good for your mental health.

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      I'd rather have champagne. You can have the beer. πŸ™‚

  15. May 7, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    Great response to that nosey female. Haha

    Have a happy Saturday. Big hugs, honey…

    • May 7, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      Yes, I agree. You have a happy Saturday too honey. πŸ™‚

  16. May 7, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    I LOVE it. Great point!

    • May 8, 2016 at 6:10 am

      It is isn't it. Have a fabulous day. πŸ™‚

    If he'd have bought her a beer she wouldn't have been lecturing him.

    • May 8, 2016 at 4:15 pm

      You're probably right Jim. πŸ™‚

    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?


    • May 9, 2016 at 10:01 am

      I sure don't want a Ferrari. πŸ™‚

  19. May 9, 2016 at 9:43 am

    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.

    • May 9, 2016 at 10:01 am

      Drinking at home is always cheaper. πŸ™‚

  20. May 9, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    Maybe she's smart and bought a rocket instead.

    • May 9, 2016 at 3:50 pm

      I doubt it. but you never know. πŸ™‚
