inflation

On a visit to see his grandmother, a teen boy listens as she goes on and on about the cost of living. “When I was a young girl,” she moans, “you could go to the store with a dollar and come home with enough food to feed your family for weeks!”

“Well, Grandma,” the boy replies, “we learned about that in school recently, and that’s called inflation.”

“Inflation nothing!” the grandmother answered. “It’s all these darn security cameras they’ve got today!”
