  •  not a "rip off" (0+ / 0-)

    See, I know this is a difficut concept for many people, but some of us do not automatically see something that is more expensive as necessarily being a rip off.

    Is it a "rip off" to pay more or a 63" HD flat panel TV when you can just pick up an old 12" black and white unit with a handle and rabbit ears at a garage sale.  No, it is more expensive, but not a rip off.

    Some people (myself included) are willing to make sacrifices in other areas in order to pay more for higher quality, better tasting, healthier food.  This involves splitting my shopping between Trader Joes, normal grocery stores, and yes, Whole Foods.  It isn't a status thing because it's for me, and nobody knows where I got the food anyway.  

    All this wasted time learning and acquiring skills... And all along I should have just squinted to see Russia
