Guy Accidentally Eats $420 Worth of Beef

Thinking he was making the more affordable choice, this guy accidentally ate himself a few hundred dollar's worth of high-end beef.

Absurdly Overpriced Stuff People Have Seen

We all know someone who, against better judgement, will buy into the complete BS of an expensive product, and assume that the high price tag is a legitimate marker of quality. It's sad to see, but when someone spends literally any money on a rock in a bag, that's kind of on them. Here are some products that are getting more expensive and somehow worse, as well as some signs someone is trying way to hard to look rich.

Stuff That's Getting More Expensive and Somehow Worse

Every industry has its sketchy secrets, and once tons of companies realized they could use their popular brand to leverage their loyal customer base into paying more for less, you can find yourself looking at a creme egg going "whhaaaaa???". It's also easy to fall into the nostalgia trap of "remember the better olden days" when that product wasn't much better to start with, but shrinkflation has definitely attacked a variety of products and things from all sides.

People's Most Expensive Mistakes

Someone on AskReddit kickstarted a thread about people's most costly mistakes. Some mistakes have a knack for wiping out the wallet, depleting all the funds, and ultimately teaching folks very expensive lessons. But sometimes, there's no lesson to be learned. It was just an honest accident.

Jerkbag Gives Server Ultimatum, Ends Up Paying for 25 Beers

If you're gonna be really serious to your server and demand that they bring you a beer with every passing, then get ready for your wallet to explode. It's hard to tell what this guy's goal was, but his words were the nails in the coffin. The service industry is at times lawless and full of characters, so you get a lot out of tales from servers who have seen it all.

Artist Provides Take on the "120K Banana" Fiasco

Recently Artist David Datuna made a statement by eating Maurizio Cattelan's art installation, which was a banana taped to a wall that was worth well over a hundred thousand dollars.

Insane Customer Demands Refund for Her Own Vase She Ruined

We're not sure what kind of person tries to spray paint a four hundred dollar vase, but it makes sense that it's the same kind of person who demands that the store she bought it from pay for her mistake. We're kind of hoping this customer is lying about the whole thing in order to defraud the store, but given the stupid-ass customers we've dealt with in our own lives, she's probably telling the idiotic truth. For a triumphant story of an employee who actually gave an awful customer a piece of their mind, check out this cashier who told off a Karen and lived.
