Compounding & Confounding Interest October 24, 2015

Groom-&-Bride-catsOn their wedding night, a bride asked her husband for $20 for their first lovemaking encounter.

He agreed.

This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 40 years ~ he viewed it as a cute way for her to afford new clothes and shoes.

You know, more STUFF!

Donald-Duck-Lazy

Arriving home at noon one day, the wife found her husband falling off the couch drunk.

“I’ve been let go. Corporate downsizing. Those bastards! I’m 64. I’ll never find a position that pays anywhere near what I’ve been earning.  We’re ruined!”

His wife smiled and handed him a bank book with forty years of steady deposits and interest.

Shocked, her husband stared at the total and then said:

“If I’d had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you ALL my business!”

That’s when she gave him the business!

Aah . . . that’s better!

You know, some men just don’t know when to keep their mouths shut.

Less IS more.

Now, that gives ‘effing stupid’ an entirely new dimension!

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

Yes, a simple “BRILLIANT!” would have been much smarter. I’m guessing she’ll maintain her interest in the account post-divorce.

Undoubtedly!

Duh! What an epic fail!. 😀

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

Whatever did she see in him? :mrgreen:

3. granny1947 - October 24, 2015

Love it!!!

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

He needs to learn to keep his lips zipped (and his zipper in full upright and locked position). 🙄

4. jannatwrites - October 24, 2015

Wow, no wonder he was let go… twice! What an idiot.

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

Exactly right! Good thing she saved for her “retirement.” :mrgreen:

5. Carol Ferenc - October 24, 2015

I guess we know who has the brains in that marriage!

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

BINGO! She was smart enough to put a nest egg aside.

6. Tiny - October 24, 2015

I agree with all your conclusions, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

Thanks, Tiny. Their marriage has had some ups and downs, eh?

7. diannegray - October 24, 2015

Love it, Nancy! 😉

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

We hold these truths to be self evident . . . that some men are not to be trusted! 😛

8. Jill Weatherholt - October 24, 2015

Ha ha…good one, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 24, 2015

She’ll come out OK . . . you can bank on it!

9. kellie@writingmoment - October 25, 2015

Oops, bit stupid of him!

nrhatch - October 25, 2015

Just a tad! :mrgreen:

10. Don - October 25, 2015

Now that’s saving at it’s best. 🙂

nrhatch - October 25, 2015

Indeed! Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow.

11. Pix Under the Oaks - October 25, 2015

Oh My!

nrhatch - October 25, 2015

He now lives in a Tiny House . . . the dog house! WOOF!

Pix Under the Oaks - October 25, 2015

LOL! I like that!

nrhatch - October 25, 2015

Morning, Pix! Hope you’re having a fun weekend.

We almost went to Heavenly Cupcake on Friday (as part of BFF’s birthday bash), but didn’t make it quite that far. Soon!

12. Val Boyko - October 25, 2015

Good one Nancy! What a duffus 🎃

nrhatch - October 25, 2015

Yup! He’s got the brains of a jack o’lantern!

13. suzicate - October 26, 2015

Time for her to take HER money and run, after she kicked him out the door!

nrhatch - October 26, 2015

She might conclude he isn’t worth further investment. :mrgreen:

14. Kate @ Did That Just Happen? - October 27, 2015

Hahahahaha, that was greatness!!!

nrhatch - October 27, 2015

As Ben was wont to say, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

15. Debra - October 28, 2015

This is the best illustration I’ve ever heard of “less is more.” LOL!

nrhatch - October 28, 2015

Yes! “It Is Better to Keep Quiet and Be Thought a Fool Than to Speak and Remove All Doubt.” — Empeco

16. reocochran - October 30, 2015

Less is more and the fact she kept this was amazing (even if it is a joke! ) She now may choose to leave with her gifts and leave his old “jewels” behind. 🙂

nrhatch - October 30, 2015

Yes! Some family jewels have diminishing marginal utility.

17. Tammy - November 1, 2015

I actually bet there’s a hint of truth in that one Nancy!

nrhatch - November 1, 2015

For sure!
