Logic of a Beer Drinker

Lady Interviewer: Do you drink every day? 
Man: Yes. 

Lady Interviewer: How much a day?
Man: Around 3 six-packs starting at noon. 
Lady Interviewer: How much does a 6-pack cost? 
Man: Roughly $10.00 at a deli. 
Lady Interviewer: And how long have you been drinking like that? 
Man: 15 years. 
Lady Interviewer: So with a six-pack costing $10.00, and you consuming 3 six-packs a
day, you are spending roughly $900 each month. In one year, you would then be
spending $10,800, correct? 
Man: Correct. 
Lady Interviewer: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 on beer, not accounting for
inflation, 15 years puts your spending roughly $162,000; correct? 
Man: Correct. 
Lady Interviewer: Did it ever occur to you that if you did not drink for the last 15
years, you could have bought a Ferrari? 
Man: Do you drink? 
Lady Interviewer: No. 
Man: So where's your Ferrari?
