The people making Ipods in Chinese sweat shops get paid more than that.
See my toddler lost my keys last week. I spent three frantic days searching for them. Three days of my life I will never get back. Three days of sifting through kitty litter, emptying garbage cans and putting my hand up a cows butt. Ok so the cow in question was a puppet but the rest of it was still nasty. I needed to find the keys because when I googled it I was told it would cost $200 plus to put in a new ignition.
OMG I can't afford that. Well I could but it wouldn't be easy! So instead of forking out the dough I stayed housebound and rechecked all the places I had already looked. NOTHING, NADA, the keys had found my homes extra dimensional portal and went off to visit all the left socks and gloves.
As a last ditch effort my dad called the dealership and they said they could cut new keys from the VIN number on my registration.
Hallelujah .. praise the lord .. I am saved.
He went to the dealership for me (since I couldn't drive my car) and returned with a shiny new key. For 48 dollars I avoided a new ignition. When went to give him the money he laughed and told me "Just kidding it was $8.42"
Eight dollars and forty two cents. For a savings of not even nine dollars I gave up three days of my life. Are you fucking kidding me? That makes the value of my time less than 11 cents an hour! I ran the math.
