Price List

Prior to the pandemic, I'd head into Manhattan a couple of days a week for a client (I was a hybrid worker before hybrid working was cool). I'd buy a sandwich at the corner deli before heading into work for two reasons; it was cheaper than buying a sandwich in Manhattan, and I'd be less likely to pick up the McDonald's McDouble bundle to “save money”. 

The sandwich would run me $5.00. I was in the deli the other day, and the current price list was on the counter. The same sandwich would cost me $7.50 today. That's a 50% increase over three years. This economy is scary.
