Biggest legit non scam rip offs of all time

Weddings. Paying the exorbitant prices for just a small wedding is insane and with the divorce rate what it is…..what a total rip off.

Bedroom end tables. They cost more than an entire dresser. I knew a furniture store owner that told me they were the most marked up rip off in all of retail.

Funerals. No explanation needed.

Who is going to pay for the meter maids to write you tickets when your time expires?

Food delivery

If you want to pay $25 to have some crackhead deliver your $6 Taco Bell meal, you're a schmuck.

Everything for a wedding is inflated b/c bridezillas are a real thing. Smart people charge an insane premium to put up with their shite.

Movie theater concession prices. I get that it's a business but cheap popcorn shouldn't cost as much as the movie ticket

A lower income family of 4 probably can't afford to go see a movie if the kids are going to want something to snack on.

If they lowered the prices just a bit, more people would go, therefore making up that price difference.

In Louisiana, the fact that you have to get an inspection sticker for your license plate AND the windshield is ridiculous.

Tipping in restaurants. Why should I pay part of this employee’s salary. They don’t tip in Europe.
