“I like everything but the price.”
This is something I hear alllll the time about our basic gym membership. It always amuses me, because the monthly fee is actually right at the average cost of a gym membership in America (http://www.cnbc.com/id/26663228) and considering our enrollment fee is a drop in the bucket, the annual cost of our membership is FAR below the average annual membership costs. Keep in mind, this is a WAY above average gym.
I was recently on the tail end of someone trying (fruitlessly) to talk me down on the price (I dont have the authority to do that). I asked him what he would be comfortable paying. He said “25.00-30.00 at most.”
So there we have it: a 15.00 dollar gap that was unjustifiable. For kicks, here are a few things you can buy for the 15.00 dollars he set out to save:
-7.8 gallons of gasoline at 1.92/gallon
-about 3 pumpkin spice lattes
-five “lightly worn” t-shirts from goodwill
-30oz frozen yogurt at Menchies
-Hanson “Middle of Nowhere” CD and a five dollar gift card to apple Itunes
-7ish Monster energy drink, assuming the 2 for 4.00 sale is still going
-A nail polish change at the mall
-15 minute chair massage from questionable practitioners
-3 footlong subway sammiches (must be five dollar footlong applicable
-Dancing with Cats Hardcover (an absolute must read)
I think that basically covers it! After reviewing this list, I totally get it now.
Wait. No. No I dont.
