This time it's over prices.
In the Sunday paper, there was a 4-page stand-alone ad for Ted's Montana Grill. We celebrated our anniversary there maybe five years ago. Their prices must have gone up. I was stunned - buy a $100 gift card and receive a $20 card as a bonus?
I guess I find it hard to spend $100 on a meal - when rural families in Kenya who are affected by AIDS could live on that for two months or more. (See Heather's post.)
And there is a feature in the ad about how great the chain is because they use paper straws instead of plastic. Micro-good, I call that.
Don't get me wrong - if someone gave us a $100 gift card for the restaurant, I'd somehow find a way to use it.
