Antony is poor. Drives 4km for 20 cents saving

Wendys Mega Choc ShakeWell, we all know that poor Antony is cheap. Unlike those with colourful life in beautiful Boston, life is not exciting here in Sydney, here's today's boring event.

After having my hair cut in the usual MarketPlace Leichhardt, I decided to give myself a treat of a megashake from Wendy's Ice Cream. Then, I saw the price for a large Mega Choc Shake was $6.80 here, I decided it was too much for me. So I drove to Broadway Shopping Centre instead, and I had the same Mega Choc Shake for $6.60 from Wendy's at Broadway. A saving of 20 cents.

According to open source extremists' beloved Google Maps service, the distance from MarketPlace Leichhardt to Broadway Shopping Centre (in Ultimo) is about 4 km.

Conclusion: I drove 4 km to save 20 cents. (Before the cost of petrol, of course.) Antony is really cheap and poor.

Well, the Wendy's in Supa Centa Moore Park is charging a ridiculous high price. Something like $7.80 or $7.90 for the same Mega Choc Shake. Wendy's are run by independent franchisees.

No, it was a "great length" to save just 20 cents. Unfortunately, this is not beautiful Boston, it is not that easy to save 20 cents.
