Prepaid schemes with a difference.

We are all aware that conflicts and confrontation can be avoided by a creative look at the problems at the root and by coming up with innovative solutions. How about this one?
“Drinker’s city” Bangalore is evolving a new trend in the economics of alcohol according to a newspaper report today. Apparently an increasing number of habitual middle class drinkers deposit a certain sum estimated to cover their drinking for the month in advance to the wine shops. This is intended to avoid the periodic arguments with their wives over the money demanded for drinking!
Ha, budget for wasteful expenses in order to avoid arguments – how ingenious!
What next ?
Drinking loans from banks with convenient equated instalments?
ECS payment to bars and wine shops?

    Oh… I never knew this! Wish they did something like this with prominent jewellers so that they can afford to buy gold for their children and their own needs!

    “…..this is intended to avoid the periodic arguments with their wives over the money demanded for drinking!”. I don’t think the issue is as much about money as it is about loosing the argument by these men! I think they just dread getting smacked on the head…would make them sober, you see! ;)
