    :angry1: :angry1: ...

    Had ten whole bucks left in my wallet today..decided it was going to be a long boring weekend unless I bought some beer..stop at the liquor store..go to the cooler to get some Miller High Life (only "cheap" beer I can drink!)..

    I look at the price sticker..it says "4.99" for a six pack of 12 oz. cans!..LAST week it was 3.99!..just two weeks ago,it was only 3.69!!..as it was for most of the winter!...:mad:

    I looked at ALL the other beers..NONE cheaper,even skunk piss Old Milwaukee,and ten other brands!..WTF????...is BEER going up because GAS is going up??...you CANT buy a six pack for under 5 bucks now!:mad:

    I was tempted to just buy a half pint of Southern Comfort instead,for about the same price!..that actually went DOWN in price recently!..

    I ended up buying 2 QUARTS of Miller High Life in glass bottles....for a whopping THREE BUCKS AND FOURTY CENTS!...you get the equivilant of 5.6 12 oz. beers for 3.40...I guess because it will go flat unless you guzzle it all ,once you open one..:thinking: ..

    I didn't ask the owner who rang up the sale why prices are going UP UP UP on beer,but not on "hard stuff"...he did give me a funny look when I put the 2 quarts on the counter (guess not many people buy them)..I said jokingly "Honest officer,I only had TWO beers!,as I held them up!..he got a laugh out of that....he said "yeah,EVERYONE says they only had "2 beers!"...they just neglect to tell them each one was 32 ounces!!...:p:


    I swear..you cant go for a ride,gas is too expensive..now you cant stay home and get a good buzz on for cheap either..life is starting to suck royally.a little more each day...:doah:

    You guys think that's bad. I can cross the border and buy Canadian beer in the USA cheaper than I can buy it at home!!!!! About $36 for a case of 24 bottles, I think $40 for a case of 24 cans.

    Nope..

    Haven't even cracked one open yet!...they are out in the shop,chilling in the fridge!...soon I will go out there,and turn the clock back!(daylight savings time! YAAY!--no more getting dark early!)..and I'll swill some!..but not both quarts in one night!..I cant buy any more,have to make them last at least 2 nights!...:(

    I cant type very fast ,even when sober,and cant spell good drunk..so me posting while intoxicated does not happen often..I'm lucky if I can turn the computer ON at all ,after I get a good buzz on!--....and I'd drool all over the keyboard and pass out most likely..so no,I wont be PWI...posting while intoxicated!..:crazy:
