Re: Things Not to be Cheap When Buying

1) Audio equitment. Buy cheap and you'll be wondering whether to recycle it or throw it out in about a year.

2) Trash bags. Cheap ones break, IF you can manage to open them.

3) Soda. Off brands suck

4) N2O. Guy selling two for five probably has industrial grade or helium.

5) Pillows. Why save two bucks if it will be flat as Herman Munsters head in a month.

6) Motor Oil. You're going to put an off-brand in your engine to save 90 cents?

7) Umbrellas. Cheap umbrellas must be designed for one use.

Cologne. Want to smell like Exit 16A?

9) Taxies. Its yellow or bust.

10) Cigars. If its not a least a buck, you'll just end up feeling sick.

11) Bus travel. If you can't afford Grayhound, don't go.

12) Water pistols. Do you want to shoot your friends or just end up with wet hands?

13) Canned pasta. You really think Chef-Boy-Ar-De it too extravagant?

Yeah, you probably want to spring for a good para glider or parachute.

They're most likely worth what you spend on them.

I don't smoke, but I can see cigars being worth it too. Some of them, I assume the cheap ones, smell terrible.

Man, we used to have some times at the Vince Lombardi service area in the GOGD days. But the place had that North Jersey smell. I had a girlfriend, Patty, who asked me to kiss her where it stinks, so I took her there.

Toilet paper, running shoes and audio equipment are topping the list.

Absolutely!! It's Hellman's or nothing. No one warned me how hard it would be to be in a mixed marriage with a Miracle Whip eater!!


And can someone kindly explain to this non-New Yorker what Exit 16A smells like?? I'm very curious now!

It's in a industrial area in north Jersey. Lots of factory's and industrial waste in the air. That area is one of the ways how an otherwise nice state with some beautiful beaches and farmland got a bad reputation. Plus, there's some bad ghettos right by Philadelphia too.

It's actually exit 16 W and 16 E where the NJ tpke hits I-80, but yes it's got that north jersey industrial vibe
