Birthdays And Inflation

I've just bought my grandma an 80th birthday card. It was her 82nd birthday the other day and seeing as I was at home with tonsilitis I never got around to getting the card in time. The reason I've bought an 80th birthday card is to allow for inflation. Australia has an inflation rate of approximately 2.5% p.a. and seeing as the card has been on the shelf for in all likelihood 12 months it should, in fact, be worth 82 years now.

Logical methinks.

Cockeyed logic, methinks!

Not only that, but you get the benefit of telling her that you bought it because she doesn't look a day over 80. Let's face it, how often do you get to say that as a compliment?

Smooth Joe, very smooth. You're not playing the dating game with octogenarians are you?
