You Thought The Price Of Gas Was Bad...

I was talking to a co-worker today and he was telling me that he was called over to help a neighbor lady, who is single, push a bale of hay off the back of her truck.  Apparently this is the fist one she had ever bought because he had never been asked to do this for her before.  This was a very large bale, weighing over 1000 pounds.  While helping her, he inquired what she paid for it.  He has three horses that he feeds and is concerned that he might not have enough hay to get through the winter.  My interst was piqued as well as I have some cattle to feed.  She told him that she paid $135 for that bale.  Just three weeks ago, I paid $50 at the same place she bought this one.  I am sincerely hoping that she was mistaken, as I need to get a bale again next week.  All I can say is wow.
