He's merely just price matching the overpriced hotdogs sold by and for breadknots in New Brooklyn.

Hey, at least the meat in Brooklyn hotdogs is made out of all-organic artisanal vegan soy harvested by Tibetan virgins right after sunset. The inferior Manhattan hotdogs are just cheap factory rat meat leftovers.

I remember when some out-of-state friends of mine came for their first-ever visit to NYC. The first thing that happened to them is that they got ripped off by the cabbie who drove them from JFK to their hotel. Man, I felt bad.

You can get ripped off anywhere. Common sense is lacking. I can do math. I can be anywhere in the world, I'm not paying $30 for a hot dog. I know how much a hot dog should cost. Sorry, no sympathy for a tourist. Maybe if they not from this country I'll show slight sympathy towards that. But anybody from the US should know better than that.

I always have a hard time with foreign currency for the first few days I'm in another country. It takes me a while to get used to it. I guess I'm a bit slow with doing math in my head
