    Default Inflation? Robbery more like...


    Nipped out last night to fill up the motor ready for todays Manchester and back journey, didnt take my whole wallet just grabbed my fuel card (sorry...). Anyway, got there, filled up, then realised I was really thirsty. Didnt have any cash or cards on me, but scraped together 58p in change around the car. Couldn't buy a damn thing. Not even a tiny carton of juice. Little bottles of coke etc are £1.25, cans 75p, water a quid, friggin disgusting.

    Very old man type of rant but what the hell is the world coming to when 58p won't even get you a cold drink??? I remember being a kid, getting a pound off me old man and that buying me a can, chocy bar or two and packet of crisps!

    AHH back when you and ABYSS were young....

    Back when 30K would buy you a house outright, not be the deposit..

    Back when £180 bought 4 tyres for the car not just a pair if you were lucky..

    Back when beer was a pound a pint and you were'nt getting into trouble by coming home late

    Seriously thou, Yep , inflation is a major drag..

    Most places don't sell cans nowadays. They've all got the bigger bottles which force you to spend well over a quid.
    Along with everything else, this country's going to the dogs.

    But it must be all OK, Blair and Brown say so!
