A conversation I recently had

Posted by on June 6, 2011

Friend: I guess I mostly want to have kids so that I have someone to take care of me when I’m old.

Me: Though actually you could just save the money you would have spent on your kids, and use it to hire a full-time live-in caretaker for yourself when you’re old. Plus take some trips.

Friend: Ha! No way. I would never have enough money for a live-in caretaker.

Me: Ah, but you would, you see, if you saved every penny you would have spent on the kids you didn’t have.

Friend: Caretakers are really expensive.

Me: Kids are even more expensive.

Friend: Yeah, but they’ll take care of you when you’re old.

Me: …Sigh.
