As we were leaving the theater, we passed the arcade section, and I couldn't help but notice once of the claw machines. I literally stopped in my tracks when I saw it.
I mean, I understand that the economy is in crisis, businesses are in need of money, etc., but come on. I think that these kinds of machines should cost, at most, 50 cents to a dollar to try your hand at possibly, maybe, potentially winning a dust covered mini stuffed animal - that is if the claw wasn't rigged to not close completely, as they often are. I mean, my man is insanely good at those machines and has won me countless mini dodgeballs, Shrek baby stuffed animals, seven dwarf dolls, etc - I mean he's like freaky skilled at that thing, but 8 quarters? $2.00 per try? You must be kidding!
Enjoy the rest of the night everyone :)
