would you pay $5 for 600ml water???

October 5th, 2008 at 07:05 pm

Because that's what I had to pay on Saturday at the festival we went to.

There was one water fountain - which we found once but didn't see again. The toilets had water but I wasn't quite sure if you should drink from them; they were port-a-loos after all.
You weren't allowed to take in unopened bottles of water; so BF and I both took 2L each at the start - but it being around 35 degrees celcius, it went pretty quickly. 10 hours walking around makes you pretty thirsty.
We spent $70 on... WATER. (BF also spent about $110 on alcohol - $11 for a CUP of smirnoff...???)

What's the most ridiculous price you've ever paid for something?

    That is bad! I went to a concert recently where beer was $8.00 each. We had tailgated before the concert, so I chose not to drink inside. Too pricey for me.

    In Hawaii on vacation in 1992. A glass of milk was $3.50 Room Service. I craved dairy. $7 in one meal for milk. My wildest expense.

    no drinking from port a loos! you were right to not do that! lol. I would pay $50 to not resort to that. yes. water is a hot commodity now- you would think it was a non renewable resource.
