Laughter: The Universal Language – #10

It’s a dreary, rainy Tuesday in Montreal. How about a little giggle to perk up the day?

A man and a woman meet in one of those “speed dating” conventions, and sit at the same table to start a conversation. They only have two minutes to talk and get to know each other as quickly as possible before the *gong* sounds and then have rotate to the next person in the queue.

Since time is extremely valuable, the woman cuts to the chase and starts asking the questions:

– Woman:
Do you drink beer?

– Man:
Yes.

– Woman:
How many beers a day?

– Man:
Three.

– Woman:
How much do you pay for each beer?

– Man:
$5.00, including the tip.

– Woman:
And for how long have you been drinking?

– Man:
For about 25 years, more or less.

– Woman:
So a beer costs you $5.00, and you drink 3 per day. Which generates an expense of $450.00 per month. In a year that would be about $5,400.00 … right?

– Man:
Right.

– Woman:
Are you aware that if you hadn’t drank all that beer, you could’ve put it into a savings account instead, and that after 25 years with compound interest included, you could’ve bought a plane?

***silence***

– Man:
Do you drink beer?

– Woman:
No!

– Man:
Where’s your plane?

****GOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG****

      1. Well, I don’t really want a plane, I’m a man of simple joys in life. Writing (as challenge, to become better), music, and a nice sunny day’s fun outside with wife and cats… But if one of you has the plane, we sure are available to drink a juice on!
