An Inflated Sense Of Immunity To Inflation

, , , , | Right | March 6, 2018

(I work in a Chinese restaurant. Here’s a fact about working in a Chinese place: the most complaints I receive are not about food quality, but about how expensive the food is compared to however many years ago.)

Me: “The total is $20.79.”

Customer: “What? It used to be $15!”

Me: “Well, my boss used to pay me six to seven dollars per hour. Now, he has to pay me more than ten dollars per hour.”

(He kept repeating how it used to be $15, while another customer behind him chuckled at my answer to him.)
