Haste Economy

Net Product: $ 3.99
Tax: $ 0.00
P & H: $ 6.95
Total Order: $ 10.94

Sometimes in my daily haste, I'll simply miss a glaring stupidity. In this case, I paid $7 to send a $4 piece of plastic two thousand miles across the continent.

In a more perfect world, the name-brand manufacturer of this particular plastic would have simply forwarded the order to local supplier, rather than ship across the country.

If you're looking for someone to blame for this week's perpetual increase in gas prices, start with me.

But for one week only.
