: (Okay, once more with emotion)
:
: 100g from a neighborhood Indian market: $3.00
: Another 100g bought in good faith after you open the "freshness
seal"
: when you leave the store and discover the powder is a dreadful tan-
: khaki color: $3.00
: Bottle of aspirin for your frustration after you open
the "freshness
: seal" when you leave the store and discover the second box of
powder
: is not khaki but dyed ULTRA blue-green: $5.00
:
: (For those of you keeping score, that's $11.00 in cash alone.)
:
: Time spent in a futile attempt to convince the Indian market to
: refund your money for their pathetic henna: 15 minutes
:
: Time spent driving back and forth to Indian market three times: 3
: hours
:
: Time spent opening said aspirin bottle's miserable, stupid
childproof
: cap when you're already frustrated: 5 minutes
:
: 3.25 hours times... let's say $5.25 (US minimum wage, just for
: argument's sake) equals roughly $17.50
:
: Grand total for STILL no usable henna: 28.50
:
: *************************
:
: 100g from a friendly neighborhood online vendor with guaranteed
goods
: and a solid business reputation: PRICELESS!!!
