02 Mar / Karma
Last week (when we scarily ventured forth into the land known as Sydenham) my darling was short-changed at the bar. He handed over a $20 and received in return a plastic cup of beer and $2.50.
Now, I know that it’s been a long time since we went out for a drink together, and I realise that every time people talk about inflation the word rampant is bandied about, but even still it seemed a bit too much of a price-hike.
It was solidified by the next monetary exchange which resulted in more change, and more plastic cups.
You know the world is heading into a tailspin when a bartender can’t give you the correct change.
But on the weekend we discovered that the universe has a plan. Karma is present and correct, baby.
Whilst browsing in the meat section trying to find specially priced about-to-expire meat or meat-like products, I found this!
Rather than weighing the forty-four grams on the label it actually weighed just a tad over one and a half kilograms. At $6.50 per kilo (less the actual $0.29 charge) that comes out around about a ten dollar saving.
Or, in karmatic terms, my apologies, Sir. Here’s your extra change.
