Anyone else tired of people complaining about the price of stuff?

Ebay put their prices up, people can't stop complaining...  if you make a profit by advertising on ebay, then it's worth it, simple.  If you don't, find something better.

Primo (an adelaide franchise restaurant) put their prices up, and they're mostly frequented by bogans as they had a great range of pretty good meals so you could take anyone there and get a good cheap feed.  Now the bogans can't handle paying more than the $9.90 they're used to and so are up in winnie-blue-armsleeves about it.

Petrol...  well where do you start?  Am I the only one waiting for the price to go up to $5 a litre to get all the people with shitboxes who can't afford it off the road?

Housing... just stop buying shit you can't afford!!!  I warned them (my friends at the time) a decade ago, don't over commit yourself unless you're willing to lose it.  Over time I stopped asking my friends if they wanted to come out to have fun because they couldn't afford it because they were on a mortgage they could barely afford, and now they're probably back with their parents because they were foreclosed on.

Hell yeah.  Sick and tired of hearing about it.

Stupid news bulletins where they interview Mr and Mrs Hard-done-by who can't meet the "spiralling cost of living".  WTF?  Ever heard of budgeting accurately and living within your own means?

My wife was telling me that someone was talking about standardising food labelling to rate its healthiness, because with cost of living going up, families were forgoing  important healthy foods for cheaper less healthy ones.  Again…  WTF?
