Critical thinking

(1/1)

iddee:
This is a conversation between a man and his wife.  Please note that she asks 5 or 6 questions which he answered quite simply and she is speechless  after answering only one question.   
 
 
Critical Thinking At Its Best!
 
 
Woman:   Do you drink beer ?
 
Man:   Yes
 
 
Woman:   How many beers a day?
 
Man:   Usually about 3
 
 
Woman:   How much do you pay per beer?
 
Man:   $5.00  which includes a tip (This is where it gets scary !)
 
 
Woman:   And how long have you been drinking?
 
Man: About 20 years, I suppose
 
 
Woman:   So a beer costs $5.00 and you have 3 beers a day which   puts your spending each month  at $450.00 .   In one year, it would be approximately $ 5400.00 correct?
 
Man:   Correct
 
 
Woman:   If in 1 year you spend $5400.00, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000.00 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 a Ferrari?
 
Man:   Do you drink beer?
 
Woman:   No.
 
Man:   Where's your Ferrari?
