I recently came across the 12 Biggest Ripoffs in America according to CNN Money. Just in case you were wondering, here they are. Ironically, almost every single one plays a prominent part in my life.
Movie Theater Popcorn
I guess this isn't that surprising, but according to ABC News, movie popcorn costs more per ounce than filet mignon. So every time I'm tempted by the prospect of sitting in a movie theater with my buttery popcorn, I'll think about how much better a piece of tender filet would be right about now.
Well, too bad. I text and bbm all day long and there's no stopping me now.
Surprise, surprise. Sorry Mom and Dad, in addition to the mountain of money you pay for my education per year, there's an additional $350 per semester on books I probably won't even read.
"Free" Credit Reports
Ironically I learned about this tonight. That's about all I have to say about it.
Wine Service at Restaurants
womp, womp. Apparently BYO is the way to go these days. I don't hate it.
My dad informed me about this at a young age after the time in Arizona when my brothers and I took every piece of the candy out of the mini-bar vending machine in our hotel room. ouch.

This is probably a good thing. Maybe next time I'll remember this before using the term 'all you can eat' literally.
Regular gasoline is just fine with me.
Actively Managed Investments
Hopefully it's only a matter of time before I know what this even means.
In-Room (Hotel) Movies
Health Club Memberships
This just reminded me that I need to start working out more often.
This is exactly why my printer has been out of ink for two years.
And with that Wednesday, I'm done with you. Thursday night, please come faster.
