The other day I went to the post office to mail a copy of my grandfather's military records and a recipe to my mom along with a couple of bills. I knew the price of stamps had gone up but couldn't remember what it is now and couldn't find my stamps. Granted, I didn't really look that hard and found them with little effort later.
The clerk got out a book of stamps and ran the scanner over the bar code twice. Total price for two first class stamps: $36,900.14. I looked at the display, cocked my head and said to her "I knew the price went up, but that's quite an increase!"
She corrected it, but I should probably check my bank account just in case. I'd be facing some serious overdraft fees if they tried to take $36k out of my account!
