He's so stupid. Sitting there grinning with the cameras in his face, then he tried the old "I don't speak English" spiel. Sucks to be him. I hope he is prosecuted. And at the World Trade center sight? Double insult to injury.

Hot dogs (and most other cured meats like ham, bacon, slim jims etc.) are really bad for you because of the sodium nitrites and sodium nitrates. Go for the ones that use sea salt instead. They are more expensive though.

I feel the man can make his hot dogs and pretzels cost what ever he wants.
I am the one that makes the final decision.
OK, your charging 30 dollars for a hot dog, guess what, I am not buying one.

no one is putting a gun to my head, I have the power, i have th final say, and i say no to a 30 dollar hot dog.

If there are no process in sight, you simply ask before you purchase, cant be an easier than that.

They're all crooks. One tried to sell me a bottle of water for $10 in Times Square a few years back and then wanted me to show him my ID when I told him I wasn't a tourist and wasn't going to fall for his bull****. Moron.

Simple solution.

Revoke his license, then charge him under report sales and income tax. Confiscate his hot dog cart and slap a $20,000 fine.
