Thread: The Wifes Logic !!

  1. #1

    The Wifes Logic !!

    Had a conversation with the wife earlier about shooting and it went something like this :

    Wife:
    You spend money on your shooting don't you?

    Me:
    Yes

    Wife:
    How many times a week do you go?

    Me:
    Usually about 3

    Wife:
    How much does it cost in diesel and ammo each time?

    Me: Difficult to say depends where I go but for sake of argument say £15 each time?

    (This is where it gets scary !)

    Wife:
    And how long have you been going out 3 times a week?

    Me:
    About 15 years, I suppose

    Wife:
    So at £15 a time 3 times a week which puts your spending in one year, approximately £2500…correct?

    Me:
    I suppose that would be about right.

    Wife:
    If in 1 year you spend £2500, not accounting for inflation, the past
    20 years puts your spending at approx £50,000, correct?

    Me:
    Correct

    Wife:
    Do you know that if you didn't go shooting so much , that money could have been put in a savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

    Me:
    Do you go shooting?

    Wife:
    No

    Me:
    Where's your Ferrari?
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    The same applies to beer. I reckon we could have had two more houses by now. But they taste crap.
