Have you ever bought something without looking at the price and after you're committed to buying it (or have bought it), realized it wasn't within your budget? My husband buys meat at the grocery store deli for our sandwiches. He usually gets a pound of a couple kinds of house brand or Boar's Head meats and a like amount of a couple of sliced cheeses. They cost anywhere from $8 to $11 per pound, which is fairly expensive. Yesterday he went to the store and brought home some sandwich meat from the deli. We decided to have some of his excellent sandwiches for lunch today. He happily told me he'd found some new lunch meat that he was sure I'd like. A guy buying some at the deli counter recommended it and the deli guy gave him a free sample. He bought a pound of it for us to enjoy. My husband used to work at a famous sandwich shop, so he piles on the meat, over a quarter-pound per sandwich. I tasted my sandwich and found the meat to be slightly chewy, with a vaguely salty, unfamiliar flavor. He told me it was Serrano ham, a Spanish ham. My radar lit up like a klieg light. I knew right then that it was expen$ive. I casually asked him how much it was. He said he hadn't looked. He examined the package and found out that stuff was $25.00 a pound! Needless to say that will be the first and last time we'll be eating that! Lesson learned. So, what have you unknowingly bought that turned out to be way too expensive?
