The cost of living is going up very quickly all over the world. When we went there recently to get a burger and fries, we saw that the price had gone up three times while the size of the food had shrunk three times. The meatball isn’t even close to what it used to be, and the price is a big difference from the quality drop.

People all over the world are coming to these frustrating realizations as they see more and more things whose prices have gone up a lot due to global inflation. People on the website Reddit took to the comments section to talk about how upset they were about the situation and to share their feelings about the things they used to love and enjoy often but can’t afford to buy any more

#5 In general, fast food. Five guys and McDonald’s in particular. Why does a burger, fries, and a coke cost the same as a full-service restaurant?

#8 Bras are completely crazy. Furthermore, you cannot skimp on them. Since I recently lost weight, I had to get new bras. I had to cry.

#15 A home. I know this isn’t “every time you buy it,” but whenever I peruse properties for sale in my region, I wonder, “How does anyone save up enough for a 10% down payment?” Let alone pay the mortgage with current interest rates.
