The Male Perspective ….

A Male Perspective ….

A few days ago a reader sent us the following story, and it is so appropriate we thought you might enjoy it, whether you are male or female.


This was a conversation between a man and a woman, two distinctly different human beings with minds that, well, never quite meet. She begins with a series of questions answered to her satisfaction but the final one is beyond her reasoning powers. As the male of the species I can openly admit I will never understand the female mind or perspective and, perhaps, some females feel the same toward men.


Woman: Do you drink beer?

Man: Yes.


Woman: How many beers do you drink a day?

Man:  Usually about three.


Woman: How much to you pay for each beer.

Man: About $5 and that includes the tip.


Woman: How long have you been drinking beer?

Man: Oh, about 20 years or so.


Woman: So, if a beer costs about $5 and you have three beers each day that means you spend $450 a month or $5,400 each year on beer. Correct?

Man: Correct.


Woman: Then, if you spend $5,400 a year on beer that means you have spent about $108,000 on beer, correct?

Man: Correct


Woman: Do you realize, if you didn’t drink so much and spend so much on beer, that money could have been put in an interest earning account somewhere, maybe earning compound interest for the past 20 years and you could have bought an airplane with that money.

Man: Do you drink beer?


Woman: No.

Man: Where’s your airplane.


This is why a famous author once surmised men are from Mars and women are from Venus; it just took beer to clarify the point!
