I’m a fairly laid back dude, there’s not much that makes me completely lose my mind. But I think I’m finally about to lose it.
Let’s say you’re driving around, and you then realize that you’re running low on gas. Well, not you per say, but your car. You then spot a gas station and read this on their sign:
Tell me, how much do you think you will pay at this very specific gas station for a liter of regular gas? If you answered 1.19$, you are WRONG. Let me give you a hint, in a form of a slightly different question: How much do you think you will pay for 10 liters of gas? What? 11.90$ you say? I’m sorry, you’re wrong again.
It turns out that the price of a liter of gas is actually 1.199$. Do you know what happens when you put exactly one liter of gas in your car? That’s right, you pay 1.20$. If you do the simple math, I should pay 58.11$ for 49.834 liters of gas, not 59.75$.
That’s 1.64$ difference.
You think I’m crazy for flipping out about 1.64$? Is is really crazy? How about this:
A paper holder, because this is really crappy.
Assuming that all taxes are included, would you flip out if you get to the check out and were charged 26.00$ for this? How about this:
Socks, because we’re sock puppets.
Would you agree to pay 6.01$ for this? Why not? The more I think about this, the angrier I get. I mean, why are we just going along with this? It seems to me like the big gas companies are already making millions of dollars on our backs, and this is adding insult to injury.
Seriously, Is this even legal?
Is this what we’re going for?
Because I can totally see myself with that haircut.
