Did I mention that the laundry room switched to smart cards instead of quarters for the machines? I don't care if it now costs me $1.75 now instead of $1.50...we got new machines instead of the old ones that rejected half of the coins I tried to feed into them, and I don't have to scrounge for those same quarters any more.

So I guess the point is that I am willing to accept the additional $0.25 per load of laundry because there is benefit to me; I am not willing to accept that same quarter going to pay for more gasoline because there is no obvious benefit to me.

It's all about me, but at least I am willing to admit it.
