Out of the mouths of teens...
I came home from grocery shopping the other day bemoaning price increases on many of our staple items. I was explaining to one of the kids why I bought 4 pounds of bananas ($.49 a pound) as opposed to our standard 4 pounds of grapes (currently $3 a pound). I also mentioned that generic frosted flakes would be on the breakfast menu instead of Tony the Tiger's brand due to price increases...and my sweet son looked at me with a puzzled expression and said this:
"But Mom, when prices go up, they increase what you get in your paycheck, right?"
I finally managed to stop laughing long enough to let him know that was not the case...he was shocked and appalled, said it wasn't fair. Yeah, tell me about it. Welcome to the wonderful world of adulthood, my son!
