    Gosh, like this is something I do all the time, I'd never even set foot in a mini-mall in ages. & actually it was an enormous mall. I just thought i'd go outside my comfort zone but it's something I'll never do again.

    That's what I used to make in an hour & ten minutes at my second-to-last job.

    It was a Haagen Dazs-- Belgian chocolate. I got it at a kiosk in a mini-mall.

    It was delicious, but this is horseshit.

    Always ask the price of your milkshake, ppl

    When's the last time you accidentally ripped yourself off with your ign'ance?
    $9 for a 'non fat soy dirty chai' (chai with an expresso shot) at the coffee shop around the corner from me in DC.

    I was sticker shocked but so light headed from not having eaten I weakly handed over my card.

    The chai was delicious. Best I've ever had. But $9 good? Maybe if I were a mogul.

    Yeah I know "non fat soy dirty chai' makes me sound like a pretentious caffeine loving hipster ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME/BACK OFF/I KNOW YOU ARE BUT WHAT AM I??!?/etc. etc. etc.

    Also once I was at a sushi boat place overseas and I kept picking the cheapest grey colored plates. Turns out the restaurant ran out of black plates so grey=black. And black = most expensive. No wonder the wait staff was being so nice to me and constantly checking on me, refilling my water, etc. They probably thought I was a mogul's daughter.

    Maybe i shouldn't have drank it, maybe I should have put it in a vault to cherish & show to all my wealthy visitors.

    $5-6 for a beer is pretty common here, outside of happy hour. I paid $12 for a pint of Guinness once.

    CAFFEINE PILLS!

    Can get about 100 pills each worth about some bits of coffee caffeine and only for a few bucks for the bottle.

    Gold plated....um...?

    You shouldn't complain about that since you get what you pay for and I figure if you bother to get contraceptives you really want them to work well. :P

    It's true. Way back when, I sold hand-made soaps for a while. I was told to overprice the bars because people would think $$$$ = unique and special.
