    Default when did the sunday paper go up to 2 bucks?

    we snagged a sunday paper this week because mom was talking about how there were like eight pages of want ads in it-which is kinda a moot point being as i can't really go job hunting until she's back on her feet in case she needs me or something, plus she wanted the grocery ads

    so we stopped off att eh gas station and i was like "ill get this' cus well, the sunday papers are normally a buck right?
    wrong-fucking fucking wrong! I get rung up and the thing is two bucks.

    now, it's not super huge but damn, it costs more for a sunday paper now than it does for a cup of coffee? when did that happen?

    we don't normally buy em but she wanted it for the gorcery ads and the want ads for me. normally we just watch the tv news if we wanna be irate about stuff or read it online. but wow. with it going up to two bucks a copy can see why the printed press is going belly up.

    Next time just swing into a diner and grab the ads out of one of the papers they have there. No good diner doesn't have a Sunday paper in it. Unless it's not Sunday...

    i think i will. i dunno why she wanted me to snag the wanties right now though. i mean, she's not supposed to lift anything over five pounds right now and i'm kinda her cook, chauffer and assistant until she gets back on her feet so it's not like i can really go out and get a job or go job hunting until she's back on her feet anyway.

    That eliminates the Sunday paper. I think it's up to like 10 pounds now. I saw a mastiff get a herniated disk trying to drag the thing into the living room...
