So Sick and Tired

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty much done with this whole idea that everything has to be infinitely more expensive than they ought to be.  I'm looking at these whole Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, just to see what they do differently.  The only thing I can come up with is that they rip your wallet a new one with the price.  Who in the world would pay 300 dollars for some headphones.  They have headphones at Wal-Mart for like 5 bucks.  Big Lots has them for even cheaper, I bet.  Look, I understand wanting the best out of your music, but give me a break.  Gas prices are even worse.  I just got a vehicle.  I'm overwhelmingly thankful for the vehicle.  However what I'm not thankful for is the price of gas going up 40 cents a gallon since I got the thing.  My car is pretty decent on gas, and I don't really go many places.  However there is no reason for gas to be over 3 bucks a gallon ever.  In fact, it shouldn't be over 2 bucks a gallon.  My friend who has a family member in the gas station business said that by law, the gas stations have a floor that they cannot go lower than on their prices.  It's a shame because I know a lot of guys would probably try to make their prices lower to A) bring in more customers and B) come off looking good for their customers.  I know I would have 1 dollar a gallon pumps just for the heck of it.  And it's gone to everything we buy now.  Bread's more expensive than ever.  Milk is horribly expensive.  Some stores sell milk for like 4 bucks a gallon.  They even raised the price of school lunch by a dime.  A whole dime, man...come on.  Like nothing is sacred or cheap anymore.  I remember when I bought general admission tickets to two wrestling pay per view events and they cost 15 bucks.  Now...shoot, 15 bucks can get you a foam belt for kids.  People talk about the economy going bad.  They say that it's because consumers aren't buying anymore.  No, it's because you're charging an arm and a leg for everything.  I was unfortunate to not have a ready supply of arms and legs at my disposal to get things.  So shape up and help me get stuff I want.  I'm surprised they haven't charged me for the air I breathe.  Although I'm sure if the government found a way to tax breathing, they'd do it.

"Hey, why is Tyrone on the floor gasping for air?"

 "He's late on his air bill."
