How Much????

Yesterday I had to go and renew the 6 year old's passport - that's another story. I stopped en route at a motorway service station. To keep me awake and to fortify me during the journey I bought a coffee and a muffin from Costa Coffee (think Starbucks). It cost £4.80. Four pounds and eighty pence? For a coffee and a muffin? That's almost $9!!!!!!!!!!!! For a coffee and a muffin?

Dang...what type of coffee? Costa was never cheap, but that's outrageous.

I think the beans were made of gold.
Like Starbucks.
(Which I hate!)

Price is governed by what people will pay. You paid, I pay and so many others also pay.

It is only by refusing to pay these ridiculous prices that they will ever come down and that requires organisation.

It's just easier to pay.

Of course, I could digress to talk about that designer cotton scarf you bought ...

Love your blog by the way :-)

(P.S. Er, I have no idea if you bought a designer cotton scarf - I was merely illustrating a point.)

I thought, here is the most apt time to trot out my link to the website where you find your local non-corporate coffee provider. Can I find it? No! Oh well, next time!
