Why are costs of things going up?

You're not wrong.  (Can't speak for current McD prices, though).  Eating out, in general, has gone way up.



i guess maybe the big mac costed more or something.


it's possible it got "phased in".


i won't check next time i go but it's just weird i had to do that.


i can get a white spot double double with bacon+mushrooms at that price (ish), and for even less with my frequent-eater discount card.


again, don't judge my eating choices!! ;)


"inflation" yo!

when i got mcdonalds earlier this week, i did a double take.


i never do a double take when purchasing food, like, ever. i never think about these things and yet apparently i unconsciously had to check my order when i got to the first window.


a big mac meal with a chocolate shake, an egg mcmuffin plus bacon and 10 nuggets came out to 25 dollars.


i mean, okay, judge me on my eating choices, whatever, but i dunno. it seems higher than before.


not a bean counter, though, so i could be wrong.

Making the steak I cook at home seem a lot more reasonable:) Thanks

What a lot of people don't realize is the product they buy everyday at $5.00 gets a 20% downsizing maintaining the same configured box with the same coloring  and the price goes up to $6.00. That's a 40% increase in price. Inflation 40%.

F.Z. had something to say about inflation..


"Cosmik Debris"

The Mystery Man came over
An' he said: "I'm outa-site!"
He said, for a nominal service charge,
I could reach nervonna t'nite
If I was ready, willing 'n able
To pay him his regular fee
He would drop all the rest of his pressing affairs
And devote His Attention to me
But I said...
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?)
Look here brother,
Don't you waste your time on me

The Mystery Man got nervous
An' he fidget around a bit
He reached in the pocket of his Mystery Robe
An' he whipped out a shaving kit
Now, I thought it was a razor
An' a can of foamin' goo
But he told me right then when the top popped open
There was nothin' his box won't do
With the oil of Afro-dytee
An' the dust of the Grand Wazoo
He said:
"You might not believe this, little fella, but it'll cure your Asthma too!"
An' I said...
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now what kind of a geroo are you anyway?)
Look here brother,
Don't you waste your time on me
Don't waste yer time...

I've got troubles of my own, I said
An' you can't help me out
So take your meditations an' your preparations
An' ram it up yer snout
"BUT I GOT A KRISTL BOL!," he said
An' held it to the light
So I snatched it
All away from him
An' I showed him how to do it right
I wrapped a newspaper 'round my head
So I'd look like I was Deep
I said some Mumbo Jumbos then
An' told him he was goin' to sleep
I robbed his rings
An' pocket watch
An' everything else I found
I had that sucker hypnotized
He couldn't even make a sound
I proceeded to tell him his future then
As long as he was hanging around,
I said
"The price of meat has just gone up
An' yer ol' lady has just gone down..."
Look here brother,
Who you jivin' with that Cosmik Debris?
(Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?)
Don't you know,
You could make more money as a butcher,
So don't you waste your time on me
(Don't waste it, don't waste your time on me...)
Ohm shonty, ohm shonty, ohm shonty-ohm
