Do You Smoke ?

Lady: Do you smoke ?
Man: Yes

Lady: How many packs a day ?
Man: 3 packs

Lady: How much per pack
Man: £10.00

Lady: And how long have you been smoking?
Man: 15 years

Lady: So 1 pack cost £10.00 and you have 3 packs a day which puts your spending each month at £900. In one year, it would be £10,800 correct?
Man: Correct

Lady: If in 1 year you spend £10,800 not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts
your spending at £162,000 correct?
Man: Correct

Lady: Do you know that if you hadn’t smoked, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

Man: Do you smoke?

Lady: No

Man: Where’s your freaking Ferrari then?..
