13. Were you as "broke" as you are today??
I have this feeling that ALL of the so-called figures we get are manipulated to death.. They say that inflation is practically nothing, but let me tell you... It feels JUST like it did when inflation was 12% & up..

Every trip to the store these days, brings nasty surprises, but they are shifty now.. A "pound" of coffee only goes up a few cents, but now a pound of coffee is 11 oz.. Canned vegetables have way more "packing liquid" than before.. Cereal boxes are bigger, but the oz weight is less..

Tiny little baby outfits are $25.00..

They don't like to call it inflation, but that's what it is..

Every try to understand a phoone bill or electric bill?? The rates may not be very much higher, but now there are "punishment tiers" and a page and a half of "fees" and "add-on charges"..

It's no wonder that people are confused.. they played by the rules, but every tie they turn around, the rules have changed.. :(
