Every July the prices at the local pool go up. It’s called inflation people. That’s why it doesn’t cost 50c to go to the pool like it did when I was a kid. Some old codger obviously hadn’t noted the phenomenon of inflation before because this week, after rudely pushing in front of me in the queue, he ranted and raved at the reception staffer for putting up the pool entry price by 25cents. Carbon tax and Julia Gillard featured heavily in his rude, ignorant and ill informed rant.
It made me angry.
The way he was raving on it was as if prices had never ever gone up until there was a carbon tax.
What a moron.
