We headed east in search of cheap gas today…our price in our neighbourhood was $1.38 a liter….or $5.22 a gallon..
Doug found some cheaper gas in Silverdale, just outside Mission..only 36 kilometers from us…so off we went…their price?..$1.23 a liter..or $4.65 a gallon…yes, we know we had to drive a bit of distance but it we needed to escape the confines of our condo for the morning....
we had a quiet afternoon at home..nothing too much going on here except for the the ‘price of water’!!..
Last weekend when were on Vancouver Island we wound up forgetting the laptop power cable..
I called the hotel when we got home they said that they could send it back to us for a nominal fee..on Monday there was a charge of $13.33 on our visa card from the Westin Bear Mountain..I thought oh that is not too bad…to purchase a new one it would have been over $50..
Well, early this morning I was on the computer checking our bank accounts and found a $19.43 charge from the courier company?..I called the hotel to inquire…and she asked me if we had taken the bottles of water from our room ( we thought they were complimentary?)..there they are on the table in our room..did we read the fine print??..nope…
Here they are at home..$13.33 for two bottles of water…in comparison if we paid the price per liter that we pay for gas.. it works out to $1.96 for the 1.42 liters of water....and here we thought gas was expensive????
We will savour every drop of this ‘clear clean water’!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the ‘Mom’s’ out there…hope everyone had a great day!
