Christmas Trip?
THIS IS A CONVERSATION BETWEEN A MAN AND HIS WIFE AFTER THEY REALIZED THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR A CHRISTMAS TRIP TO A WARMER PLACE.

WOMAN: YOU DRINK BEER WITH YOUR FRIENDS EVERY DAY, DON'T YOU?

MAN: YES I DO.

WOMAN: HOW MANY BEERS A DAY?

MAN: USUALLY ABOUT THREE.

WOMAN: HOW MUCH DO YOU PAY PER BEER?

MAN: $7.50 EACH, WHICH INCLUDES A TIP.

WOMAN: AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DRINKING WITH YOUR FRIENDS?

MAN: ABOUT 20 YEARS, I SUPPOSE.

WOMAN: SO A BEER COSTS $7.50 AND YOU HAVE THREE BEERS A DAY WHICH PUTS YOUR SPENDING EACH MONTH AT ABOUT $675, OR $8100 A YEAR.
MAN:  THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT.

WOMAN: IF IN 1 YEAR YOU SPEND $8100, NOT ACCOUNTING FOR INFLATION, THE PAST 20 YEARS PUTS YOUR SPENDING AT $162,000 CORRECT?

MAN: M-M-M, OKAY, IF YOU SAY SO.

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: REALLY?  
WOMAN: REALLY!
MAN:  DO YOU DRINK BEER?

WOMAN: OF COURSE NOT.

MAN: THEN WHERE’S YOUR AIRPLANE ?
