Buying drinks Wed, Oct 21, 2009
I have this problem whenever I order a drink at a restaurant or bar where I can't stop calculating how much cheaper I could do things if given the opportunity.  Let's say I get a pint of Yuengling for $5.  Being a capitalist, I know I can buy the exact same quantity of beer in bottle form as part of a six-pack for approximately the same price I'm being asked to cough up for just one.  And it kills me.  I'm forced to rationalize the fact that it's on tap so it's likely fresher, or that I'm spending time with other humans which is good for me.  This is part of a much larger problem of mine where I feel irrationally compelled to get the most for my money.  Poor me, pour me a drink. #money
