Good morning, News Viewers, it’s time for a little Coffee Talk.
Coffee Talk serves as your Thursday free chat forum, with the hope that you freely chat at will. It’s the place to talk about the topics of your choice. It might be newsy, cutesy, or loosey-goosey. It’s also a great place to show off your cats.
There is a suggested topic of the day, in the event you do not have a cat, or if the cat’s got your tongue.
Yesterday I made a lightning quick trip to the store (in pouring rain) to pick up a few staples, and found my jaw dropping in the coffee aisle. My everyday Maxwell House had jumped in price by 20% from my last purchase. I see price increases all the time, but this one stood out to me.
What was your most recent sticker shock?
It seems like we’ve become accustomed to supply shortages — I know I have. I’m never surprised to find an empty spot on a shelf for some of my favorite grocery items, so I have learned to pick up an extra when it’s there. If I had picked up an extra Maxwell House, I’d have $21 in the cart. Yikes.
So, it’s your turn…….. cost of living, cats, coffee, cartoons? You’ve got the floor.
Have a great Thursday!
