On inflation

March 23, 2007

I can’t believe it; this is ridiculous; what is the world coming to; etc.

They jacked up the price of my morning cup of tea from 58¢ to 70¢—that’s a 21% increase! And even worse than the outrageous markup is the fact that I’ll start getting change in nickels now. Pennies I can deal with, and I get perverse enjoyment from the fact that they’re worth more as commodity metal than as minted currency; but nickels are just a pain in the ass.

I guess I’m just lucky that I broke a dollar bill this morning instead of having exact change ready.
