Gotta Get Paid

Here’s the thing. No one like over-paying for things, and I’m right there with them. But even I will concede sometimes.

I never buy popcorn or snacks at the movies. That markup is just criminal. But if I’m at an event, and they’re selling diet Coke for $2 a pop, I’ll usually buy one.

You’re paying for the ‘cold’ (even if you smuggle in a soda, it’s unlikely it’ll keep its temp for long), but also the people there have to pay their own bills, including employees, tent/space rental, and more.

I used to be a real tightwad, but now I’ve realized that sometimes you just have to suck it up and pay the price. It’s not the end of the world.
