Did you ever hear someone complaining that “it is not fair what the prices of things are”? Well, I know what they are talking about but I am not going to wonder about the high cost of things, but that things are priced unfairly. Here is an example of what I am talking about. My wife and I went out for lunch yesterday. Although I don’t drink anything with my meals, I did notice the price of iced tea. They had both sweetened and unsweetened. They were both the same price. When I drink iced tea, I drink the unsweetened one, so why should I pay the same amount as the person who wants sugar in it. I also drink black (and strong) coffee, so why should pay as much as the person who takes cream and sugar?
The same thing exists in clothing, up to a point. A medium sized shirt costs the same as a large or an extra large. Is that fair? I wear a small size boot (or shoe). Depending on the style, I wear between 7.5 and 8.5. If they don’t come in a wide size I have to go to the upper end of that size limit. But my boots cost the same as the size 10. Why? Are the large size people getting a bargain or are the smaller people paying too much. Yes, I know that most of the cost is in the manufacturing and profit, and that the material cost is low, but I do think we should be charged a fair price for what we get and not have to pay more (or less) for the amount we get.
I am also a practical man, and it is so much easier to price things the same no matter what the size or if it has sugar or not. And of course the price is always above the cost of the largest or most complicated item.
It was a beautiful warm and sunny day here yesterday, and my wife and I enjoyed our selves. The high got to 76 but things are going to deteriorate today. Rain and a cold front moving in and some of the storms are predicted to be severe with chances of small tornadoes. That was forecast last night, haven’t listened to the news today. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
