‘Quick question: When did it become normal to pay $13 for a juice at a coffee shop?’ —Voulgaris asked.

‘You know what I mean? Better yet, when did it become normal to pay $7 for a damn bag of chips?

‘Better yet, $4.50 for fucking sushi. You’re literally going to dinner: $70. Unless you want a kebab for dinner.

Voulgaris ended his rant by joking that he needed to talk to inflation.

“I need to talk to Mr. or Mrs. Inflation, or if non-binary, just Inflation,” he said.

“I just paid $75 for two takeout pastas – $33 each plus 15 per cent weekend charge – insane prices,” added a third.

A fourth said: ‘Sushi makes me angry. The other day I paid $19 for two sushi rolls and a Gatorade.’

A fifth added: ‘$25 for a pizza or $25 for a burger.’ He is absolutely screwed.”

Another said: ‘Yeah, it’s crazy. I had a coffee and a toast. It was 16 dollars.’

‘I hate it when people come to my work and just buy water because why is water $6.80?’ I feel very bad selling it.
