QOTD: Inflation Station
The other day I was at the grocery store, and I noticed that over the past few weeks I've changed my shopping habits to adjust for inflation. So I started wondering -- if some of us are changing how we shop for food, how are we adjusting for inflation when it comes to automotive?
Are you shopping for auto parts, particularly stuff like windshield-washer fluid that needs to be replaced frequently, at different stores? Are you working harder to find coupons and deals? Are you putting off repairs, both DIY stuff and repairs that need to be done at a shop? Are you even putting off basic maintenance like oil changes and tire rotations? Or are you biting the bullet and saving money elsewhere? Or maybe you have enough income that it doesn't even matter!

If you are angry about or struggling with inflation be sure to thank every Biden voter you interact with. This mess is all their fault. They were warned Dementia Joe was going to do the things he did, in fact he admitted most of it, and they STILL voted for him.
I'm relatively comfortably semi-retired, so I have the luxury of just sighing and carrying on as usual, while shaking my head at the gullibility of USA voters.
Lou_BC--I like that and agree erections are for the people and they have consequences and if they frequently occur it is best to see your doctor.
