I just paid an exorbitant amount for two gourmet (read: handmade) pies from a local bakery. I made the mistake of not asking how much they were before buying, assuming they'd be about $15 each. THEY WERE MORE THAN $15 EACH, and that's all I'm going to say.
This is just another in a string of holiday muggings at local retailers.
When I got home I told Noah I felt like I'd been robbed, and the perp gave me a couple pies out of remorse. Sure I walked away with some fresh pastries, but I can't really feel good about it.
