A few weeks ago I was reminded of my days as a bachelor. I was out with friends, all single males with good jobs, wonderful lives, spending many a night out in clubs and bars seeking women and partying until dawn.
As we were ordering another round of drinks, one of them suddenly turned and, in utter disbelief, reflected upon the amount he had spent over the last year during those party nights. He estimated that he had spent in excess of €10,000 on partying. He was not alone, as we ran the numbers, most of those at the table came up with similar numbers.
