Being a know-it-all has its ups and downs, but giving out unsolicited advice to strangers means you have to take your lumps when it's dished out. But the man in the story has the right idea.
Awoman walks up to a
stranger in a bar and out of the blue asks him: “Do you drink beer?” The man says yes.
“How many beers a day?” the woman asks.
The man responds: “About 3.”
“How much do you usually pay per beer?”
“And how long have you been drinking?” the woman asks.

“About 20 years, I suppose,” the man answers. Then the woman says:
“So a beer costs $5 and you have three beers a day, which puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5,400. Is that correct?”
The man thinks it over and nods.
The woman continues: “If in one year you spend $5,400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000. Correct?”
The man thinks it over again and nods.
“Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?” the woman asks.
The man pauses for a moment and then asks: “Do you drink beer?”

The woman proudly shakes her head.
The man asks:
“What color is your Ferrari?”
That's a good question, right? Share it with your friends if you think so too.
Someone who doesn't need to save up her beer money to buy a Ferrari is the late King of Pop's daughter, Paris Jackson.
But Jackson has clapped back at the media recently for portraying her as an unstable "junkie meth alcoholic party raver."
According to the media, Jackson who was in rehab two months ago for alcohol abuse and mental health issues is struggling with drinking again.
In a warning to the media, Jackson said that having her father's kindness doesn't mean she inherited his patience.
