Hunkering down

I can’t help but feel ripped off left, right and centre. What used to be a loaf of my favourite bread is now 1/3 smaller at the same price. Like the bread manufacturer thought consumers would not notice. It’s so obviously smaller! My previous go-to pastry used to have a full egg across the bun. The egg is now a 1” wide strip down the middle. I threw it out in disgust. A mid-level comedian is coming to town next year. I searched for tickets, and it will cost $2200 for 1 ticket. So I’ve decided that while restaurants are struggling, and theatres need filling, I’m not partaking in these consumer shenanigans on my dime. Not buying Xmas presents, not giving my money away for the next several months. So tired of this “new normal”.

It's not the new normal, it's gouging and exploitation!!

The capitalist pigs will continue to grind us into the ground until there's a revolt. You don't have to be Karl Marx to know when you're being ripped off and exploited. What are you going to do about it?!!

You must have made a typo since no one is going to charge 2,200.00 for a freaking ticket. And if they do, please tell me how I can get into this racket.

As for tossing money away on shows and high priced living - better to eat bread and cheese and have peace of mind.

No typo. Mid-level comedian is indeed $2200 for 1 ticket. Front centre is $5500.
Living in insane times!
