But it's something you need to buy, not want.

I was thinking about this while shopping for some stuff today. Among the things I had to buy were shoes and shirts, because mine are very old and getting holes and I never go clothes shopping as I completely despise it.

Anyway, I bought a pair of decent shoes for a grand total of $18. (I bought this brand before and they lasted me a full year with no issues, GLOBE is the brand). However one shirt, JUST ONE SHIRT, costs just as much. Actually a buck more.

I really don't understand this, I mean shoes have rubber, require more skillful stitching and assembly. Shirts can be 100% made on a machine and use WAY less material. So why is it that a shirt cost more than ****ing shoes? This is why I hate clothes shopping. It's too ****ing expensive for what it is. It's a god damn sheet of fabric with some stitching.

I mean I can justify spending money on shoes. You NEED shoes, so you'd want good quality. You literally cannot live life without some sort of footwear unless you have been your whole life, and your feet are tolerant to it. But a shirt is something society tells us we should wear. We don't NEED a t-shirt. I mean yea, we wear clothes to keep warm in the cold, but a t-shirt?

****ing clothes.

/rant

Don't turn this thread into a clothes debate btw, stay on topic

Anyways, aside from gas as I know it'll be mentioned a million times, what are things you hate buying, but have to?

Cheese comes to mind as well. The kraft cheese, not real deli cheese. It's almost $10 for a brick. I feel like it's too expensive.

Gigs.

I wanted to take my missis to see Pink as she's quite a fan - freaking £80 a ticket before handling charges, shipping etc!

**** that.

Also - car repairs. Something goes "Crunch" and you know it's running you several hundred quid.

Any new games.

Seriously, $60 for a current-gen Tetris? I have that rarest of rare possessions known as friends, I can spend $10 on a game to play with them for just as much fun. And companies wonder why used games and platforms like Steam with constant sales took off so well...

ts, $20 is pretty standard for a nice shirt these days.

I know and it's horse shit. A shirt should cost $5. But nooooo, I'm paying an extra $15 because there is a big ugly stupid looking logo on the front of it.

Redbull. I work late hours and don't sleep much. So I drank two red bulls a day for months. Which is like a hundred bucks out of every paycheck. So I stopped drinking them and it pisses me off.

And baby stuff. My daughter is due in March and she's just gonna outgrow everything anyway. I'm okay with letting her roam free range and naked in the backyard but her mother isn't having it.

But you don't need video games. In fact the retarded price of video games is a big part of why I largely gave them up by the time I was in high school.

Which was likely for the best now that I think about it.

Erm, none of those are that important. Be happy that you can wake up at dawn that easily.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

You do if you have no friends and nothing to do. Everyone needs to be entertained. I don't mind the price if it's a good game that gives me plenty of bang for my buck. But 70 bucks for Street Fighter? That takes what... Like three days to program? And they expect me p pay what I paid for Skyrim?

You don't need music, but that didn't stop people from listing it. Same for Red Bull and guitar strings.

For what it is, for sure.

I would go to Walmart, as they have like 2/$10 deals on plain shirts, but ever since I read this (also hearing about this kind of shit over the years) I don't shop there anymore..

Train tickets. Every year our train company are permitted to rise their prices by Annual Inflation Rate +/- 1% and every year, without fail, they rise it by the maximum they possibly can.

It's also more expensive to buy a ticket before 9am, which makes no sense as the trains are more crowded and more likely to be delayed or cancelled, which they usually always are.

It makes perfect sense from a business point of view - people need the trains for their commute, so they're prime targets for being milked dry. What else are they going to do?

It's a bit like how petrol is more expensive on motorways.
