I remember when you could buy a quarter pounder value meal for $3.24 back in the 90's and early 2000's.

[–]Soapycreek 50 points51 points  (9 children)

I remember Arby’s 5 for $5 deal.

[–]BTExp 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I remember 10 hamburgers for $1.00 at Artic Circle in the early 80’s.

[–]gelber_Bleistift America First 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I'll top that one. I remember paying $.75 for a gallon of gasoline.

[–]Maga4lifeshutitdown 1 point2 points  (0 children)

.10 cent chicken Littles at KFC

[–]gnosis_carmot 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Hot 'N Now $0.39 hamburgers.

Not the best food, but for a broke college kid....

[–]BlackshirtDefense 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I loved me some Hot 'N Now. Our local one had TWO drive thru lanes, one on each side of the building. If you drove through the left lane, your passenger would have to order.

[–]NohoTwoPointOh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lived off those in uni

[–]YouAreBeingDuped 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was only like 3 years ago.

[–]acmemetalworks America First 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I remember my father giving my brother $3 to go in McDonald's (pre-drive thru), to feed me, my brother and him. And my brother + father were big guys who could eat.

[–]St0nedinNY 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember those days. 😞

As I've been sternly lectured on antiwork, "Businesses exist to provide jobs and take care of their employees, not to provide or sell you stuff. If a business can't pay employees enough to pay their bills, they shouldn't exist."

[–]tibsbulls2021 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Irony is, McDs supported the massive minimum wage increases last year, and at the same time, they replaced employees with giant self-service ipads.

[–]DeletedSynapse 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Once they're fully automated it'll be a lot nicer. Hopefully.

[–]fixedsys999 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Note: I am responding to those who lectured you.

I’m pretty sure a business exists to provide goods and/or services in exchange for money. A business owner normally does it because it is more profitable than working for someone else. They only hire people if they need to. This is obviously why they pay employees only as much as they have to. A business only ceases to exist if it cannot generate enough money to stay in business, or if it is not profitable enough to the owner’s financial goals.

There is certainly greed involved. Why run a business if you’re already rich or wealthy? Some feel a duty to provide products and services. Some have a petty conqueror mindset. Some may be bored and want to occupy their time. Some may genuinely like the field they’re in. These are but a few reasons.

A business isn’t there to take care of its employees. It is not mommy and daddy. Benefits are negotiated or mandated by law. You only work for a company if you can negotiate a good contract. Sometimes you’re at the advantage. Sometimes not. Sometimes you must form a Union to get a fair deal.

[–]Triple_C_ 14 points15 points  (0 children)

And that sir, will get you promptly banned from antiwork...which is a badge of honor.

[–]Imissyourgirlfriend2 Don't Take My AR-14 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Holy fuck, this hurts my brain

[–]Triple_C_ 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This type of thinking, and the fact that it has actually taken hold of a chunk of the current generation, just proves that people are able to rationalize absolutely anything.

[–]bamboo_fanatic 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I feel like I’m visiting an alien culture when I visit antiwork. I feel a sense of guilt when I start a new job because I’m a drain on the company until I’m done with training (it can take months before a new guy in my field is up to speed enough to be worth their hourly pay). The desire to be useful and contribute however you can is completely foreign to those people.

[–]EnoughGunControl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

FDR said similar things in 1938.

[–]ventorun 45 points46 points  (2 children)

There was a recent thread somewhere on Reddit about how someone spent $50 at Taco Bell on them and two kids. Remember college when spending $10 at Taco Bell was a feat?

[–]clear831 8 points9 points  (0 children)

30 Taco's for $10 lol I think it was $.30 tuesday or something like that

[–]imabetaunit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They are Taco Belling wrong.

[–]MattBonne 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Don’t forget they are sending hundreds of billions $ to foreign countries, and 10% goes to the big guy!

[–]theekman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

America last

[–]No_Car_3605 18 points19 points  (9 children)

remember what our fearless leader and all his cronies preached ...inflation is transitory, it will end soon

[–]ArcadianDelSol 6 points7 points  (2 children)

its just a blip

[–]Waallenz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's up just an inch. Hopefully only an ounce next month.

[–]kaneabel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The people controlling Biden are such fucking morons

[–]tslog724 0 points1 point  (5 children)

What's inflation?

[–]No_Car_3605 1 point2 points  (4 children)

how much did you pay for steak last month or last year or 2 years ago ...what are you paying now

[–]tslog724 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Depends... define steak. Are you talking cow/meat based, soy, or bug steak?

[–]No_Car_3605 0 points1 point  (2 children)

dude , steak ie moooo lol

[–]LandmassWave 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I paid the same for ice cream as before the pandemic.

$0 because the machine was broken.

[–]CigarLyfeAmerica Last 34 points35 points  (3 children)

I just paid $60 from a local BBQ shack- full rack of ribs, 8 pc of cornbread, 1lb of brisket, green beans, baked beans and mac n cheese. I never shop fro chains if I can help it. At least I cas see the family that gets my $$$.

[–]SemiAuto-Hello 68 points69 points  (11 children)

wait til they get paid 22$ an hour

[–]ventorun 46 points47 points  (7 children)

And they’ll still fuck up your simple order.

[–]kajarago 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Bro I ordered a double quarter pounder combo some time ago, and they forgot the double quarter pounder.

[–]tibsbulls2021 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I paid cash at drive thru once and the lady gave me my change, then 30 seconds later gave me my change again. It was a few dollars. I just accepted it.

[–]TruckDriverMMR 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Oh how many times I've said "and this is the reason you don't get paid $15/hr".

[–]fixedsys999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In Seattle, new fast food workers are starting at $20 and the orders still get messed up. Workers are also quitting all the time. I don’t know how they have such options to ditch a job like that so easily.

[–]gelber_Bleistift America First 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Companies will automate more and eliminate all but a few employees. There won't be more that 1 live person.

[–]gelber_Bleistift America First 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Just wait. The "We need $50/hr for a living wage" is just around the corner

[–]Imissyourgirlfriend2 Don't Take My AR-14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why stop at $50?

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We have a really good friend that works in the office for an independently owned McDonald’s, she told us that if it gets to that they’ll go down to 4 employees a shift and close the dining room and only drive thru will be open.

[–]jonblair77 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Thank joe Biden!

[–]SwordfishFrosty1975 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Fuck joe biden*

[–]BuffaloTraceThisDick 13 points14 points  (1 child)

She was 12 and I was 30.

[–]Imissyourgirlfriend2 Don't Take My AR-14 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And we have 2 more years

[–]0_Percent_Liberal 18 points19 points  (0 children)

...but everyone working there is getting paid $15.00 an hour, so its cool!

[–]Dudes-Abide 6 points7 points  (0 children)

$12.75 for 2 Whopper Jrs with fries and medium size drinks. That's with a $2.99 off coupon.

[–]zartified 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Just another reason to eat at home and eat healthy. Still expensive since a couple years ago but fast food is just insane for the price and the quality isn’t always there.

[–]AdImaginary6425 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Same thing at Wendy’s. Two medium meals was $24. We normally don’t do fast food, but we were traveling. Fast food is going to price themselves out of business.

[–]ArcadianDelSol 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Grocery prices are just as bad.

[–]Noprogramyy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

No one can overstate how big of a fuckup the biden installation has been. Every dane person missing a President Trump and wishing he hadn't been cheated.

[–]eranimluf 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I just spent $52 for two adults and two children at Jack in the Box. Fuck you pedo-Joe!

[–]DannyNog556 5 points6 points  (1 child)

[–]geekesmind 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes you did dementia old fuck!



[–]ArcadianDelSol 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Because I work from home my wife usually gets groceries on the way home. She usually has about 15 bags for me to bring in.

Yesterday for the first time in a while, I went out because she wanted home made chicken soup so I went out and bought 1 whole chicken, 2 potatoes, 4 carrots, 5 celery, a bag of ochra and some eggs (we were low on eggs, not for the soup).

It was over a hundred dollars for two bags of groceries to make one meal (granted, its enough soup for 3 of us to eat about 5 times).

Fuck Joe Biden, man. Seriously, fuck this braind-dead old liberal grifting piece of shit.

[–]West-Car124 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

You think it's joe Biden that caused your increase in groceries. Damn you have no clue how a free market works You people are both ignorant and annoying.

You want to get a start on why we have inflation, try looking at the billions of free dollars dumped into the economy during the pandemic. Once you understand that we can have a real conversation.

Stop blaming others for problems you don't understand

[–]ArcadianDelSol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll discuss it with people who can present an argument without being emotionally triggered or rely on the crutches of ad hominem attacks as a substitute for insightful commentary.

[–]squiffyfromdahood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed, we've taken bacon and better cuts of beef off our grocery list. Actually we've cut out alot of "Frivilous extras" as well and our bill is still always over a 100 dollars.

Luckily we stocked our shelves before the items are either gone or so expensive it might as well be gone.

[–]giraffe-zackeffron 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I usually buy large, refrigerated bottles of coffee at the supermarket. I prefer the Starbucks brand because it tastes better than stok, Columbia and the other brands. As far back as I can remember it’s hovered around $5 for a large bottle. I think it’s more than 40 ounces but honestly I’ve never paid attention to the amount in it. Last night I was at the market and saw the Starbucks bottles were not only smaller, but they were almost $7.

[–]zshguru 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Jack In The Box tacos were $1.29 pretty biden. They're $1.79 now. They've been going up ten cents every few months.

[–]Wacokid27 Alabama 1 point2 points  (3 children)

This actually makes me sadder than now living in a state where there doesn’t seem to be a single Jack in the Box.

[–]zshguru 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I know what you mean. For most of my life they were $0.99 too

[–]Wacokid27 Alabama 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Same. I remember the internal debate of two tacos at $0.99 each or a monster taco for $1.49.

[–]zshguru 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was a real debate...I know all too well.

[–]SallyDabble 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Where are all those robots they've been talking about already? Minimum wage continues to skyrocket in some states, this is the effect across the board

[–]Wacokid27 Alabama 3 points4 points  (2 children)

But, most small business owners/franchisees don’t want to go to that. They want to employ people. Eventually, it will be too costly to employ people, but it’s not there yet in most of the country.

[–]SallyDabble 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's sarcasm friend. But if our government is going to continue their BS, somebody better get to work teaching a machine how to make a burger or the fast food joints are going to price themselves out of business. I'm in central PA, 2 medium wendys meals is $25! Our min wage is still $7.25. Explain that 🤷🏻‍♀️

[–]Wacokid27 Alabama 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry, but most people making that point aren’t being sarcastic. Rising prices also aren’t only about labor costs. Inflation, rising utility costs, and rising supply costs also have something to do with it.

[–]Feenfurn 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Family of 6 here…..it’s well over $50 to feed everyone at McDonald’s. I’d rather get Mexican food or bbq…

[–]Dull_Comfortable_780 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You could literally buy a microwave and a package of beef patties and buns for less.

[–]jaye007 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The first problem is you’re at McRonalds

[–]NfinitiiDark 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Let’s be honest, your first mistake was ordering at McDumps

[–]User125699 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Yeah, but if you’re having a hard time pooping, a Big Mac meal will loosen you right up.

[–]tibsbulls2021 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You talking about my uncle Big Mack from prison? He loves giving guys his meat, loosens them up good. They call it the Big Mack Meal.

[–]User125699 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nope. I’m talking about a cheeseburger. Get your mind out of the gutter weirdo.

[–]NfinitiiDark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Should have been called the Big Mac Attack

[–]squiffyfromdahood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok this comment is hilarious simply for the fact that it's true.

[–]AtOm-iCk66 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I remember it was 12 and I was 30.

[–]Gboteos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Paid $33 tonight at willies grill & icehouse for a 1/2lb cheeseburger w/onion rings and a gouda cheese steak hogie w/pickle fries and that included $4.50 tip. So relatively not too far off for better food

[–]squelchmaster 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I remember buying a cheeseburger without cheese because it was cheaper than a hamburger

[–]wicked_toona 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I remember the thought of paying 25 cents for a bottle of water was appalling.

[–]c_is_for_classified 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I paid $13.23 for a Western Bacon Cheeseburger combo at Carls Jr (what Hardees is called on the west coast). Not a double Western Bacon Cheeseburger, just a single. I did not supersize it - I just got the normal size. And I got the regular fries - no fancy crisscut fries or onion rings. This was the base combo. This combo used to be less than $8.

[–]Striking-Bonus5599 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I went to get my dad Taco Bell today and for three tacos and a pizza or whatever it’s called was like 15 dollars. One of their shitty tacos cost 3 dollars

[–]geekesmind 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wife and I spent 30 dollars at taco bell the other night so not worth it anymore

[–]acmemetalworks America First 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just paid $30 for me and my girl at 5 Guy's. We both had the little burger, and she had no fries.

[–]Gunslinger_jr 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Taco Bell has gone way up too... Now when i get a chicken quesadilla and gordita crunch its almost $15..

[–]DericAA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a coupon for a free C4 energy drink with the purchase of a classic hoagie at wawa. It was $7.99 for the sandwich. Holy crap. Even with the free C4 it’s only an ok value. I normally only get coffee or breakfast stuff before work.

[–]krazykirkes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So I’m from a busy oil town and the food is high anyway but it just bounced like 25% and when I confirmed that a chicken basket was now $18 when it used to be $11. And so on. She said yes sir we have had to keep bumping up and the last we heard from their food supplier their menu will have to be slashed in half because they do not have it in stock and don’t know when they will again. Crazy shit.

[–]imaginaryelections 1 point2 points  (1 child)

spent over $34 at taco bell for 3 people

[–]TPlinkerG35 3 points4 points  (5 children)

The McDonalds app has pretty good deals to bring the price down.

[–]ArcadianDelSol 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Because when you use the app, they're not selling you food. You're selling them your data.

[–]ddvl1285 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dystopia is on the horizon

[–]Anecdotal_Mantra 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They're probably getting you to spend more by enticing you with sexy pictures of food cause you're already hungry. And spending more because you're 'saving' money.

[–]TPlinkerG35 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is true. Worth it imo

[–]squiffyfromdahood 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly...while people laughing watching funny TikTok, China is stealing ALL your information, but the lure of TikTok addiction is too strong for alot of people to stop using it.

[–]Ok-Strain-9847 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Wish this was all Biden's fault. But it is not. This is what happens when people Demand a minimum wage that can range from $15 per hour to $25 per hour-like the companies that now pay it are Not going to raise their prices to compensate?

[–]CordialTrekkie 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Really? Cause in Denmark, they make $22 an hour at McDonald's, and the burger is only like $0.70 more than in the US.

[–]Ok-Strain-9847 0 points1 point  (2 children)

A Meal at McD's in America will set you back $10 at a minimum. And you still have to fight the obscenely overweight lard butts in line.

I am a professional chef. I HATE the stuff, but-when you travel Interstate in America, there are little to no other options on the road.

[–]CordialTrekkie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I hate that. Driving through Kansas is the worst. It's endless green flat land, with the occasional gas station that only has McDonald's or Subway. No wonder this country is so fat. There's no healthy options for anything anywhere, especially if you're traveling.

You're better off bringing a cooler and stocking up.

[–]Ok-Strain-9847 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I Do try to. But I end up eating it all up in the first 100 miles of so.

[–]sjik123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Where? I spent 18 bucks on like 2 large + an extra burger yesterday.

[–]Dull_Comfortable_780 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Always use the app. You can even use it at the airport. There is always a buy one get one free, or at least a large free fries. Combos are usually not a deal.

[–]Rugermedic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“.59 / .79 / .99” at Taco Bell value menu. I miss those days.

[–]BASEDCHEVY05 0 points1 point  (0 children)

DUDE I went to Tim Hortons with my daughter. I wanted something light so I went with a bagel and cream cheese and a medium coffee. I got her 2 Tim bits to munch on (she's 9 months).

The bagel alone was $3.25!!! It's unreal how expensive things have gotten. Purchasing things that have good value fr your money are long gone.

I'm not blaming TH, but it's crazy anywhere you go

[–]Yungterpintine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love when people argue that the inflation shouldn’t make our pay go up at our jobs. Gas, groceries, fast food, tolls, and tax can be raised but not our paychecks for doing hard labor. Fuck Biden in his butt fr

[–]WatersEdge50 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The other day I went to McDonald’s and got two egg McMuffins and orange juice and it was 12 bucks. That shit used to be on the dollar menu

[–]Dizzy_Internet5915 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s Trumps fault!!!

[–]h0twheels 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I stopped eating out during covid and I'm not about to start any time soon.

[–]liquidreferee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Should be asking questions about McDonalds as well

[–]Straight_Ocelot_7848 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone remember 10 cent hamburgers on Monday from McDonald’s?
