At the risk of sounding like an old geezer, I’m going to complain about the price of something now- air. My tire was low so I stopped at a gas station this morning to fill it. The machine there cost 75 cents. Having only 50 cents and no cash, I went to two more stations, hoping to find what apparently no longer exists- free air. I finally had to go to the cash machine, go to a fourth gas station, get change, and ended up paying a dollar (yes, a dollar!) for air. The funny thing is that the machine had a blurb on it that said $1 for 5 minutes of air! Hey, that’s a great deal- if you’re blowing up a hot air balloon. I want a refund for the 4 minutes and 40 seconds of air that I didn’t use while topping off my one tire. Okay, done complaining now. I understand nothing is free anymore but $1 for air seems excessive.
