One practical thing I missed was low-cost high-speed internet. I remember paying $40 a month for AT&T, and now I pay 50% more for a lower speed. Sometimes I tell myself, "This is ridiculous! I don't need the Internet! I will just cancel it and go to my local library!" but then the bill comes in the mail and I grudgingly pay it, and that makes me think of this:
Do you have any other idioms you'd like to see drawn that have to do with costs and money (or arms and legs for that matter)?
Have a good one, and don't pay an arm and a leg if you can avoid it!
