I dont know how many times I have heard this! “You must be rolling in the dough, because of the prices of the products in your machines”. I shared with you on my last few blogs back that there is a thing called overhead. Which increases my expenses, to where you have to mortgage your home to buy a bar and a bag of chips from a vending machine. A few weeks back one of my delivery vans engines blew! It cost me over $700 to find out that it was blown, towing to the garage, just under $200. Then another $250 to tow it to another garage to be repaired. Promised it would be repaired for about $9000.00 by the end of the week, to which I said go ahead. A week later and no engine! Then I realized that I was throwing good money after bad and called my mechanic and put the brakes on it. I decided to bite the bullet and buy a newer van with some warranty left and sell the old one for parts. I asked my mechanic if he wanted to buy it hoping he would say yes and give me a few thousand. He offered me $1000.00 which barely covered the cost of his deconstruction of my van. Since I purchased this van for mere $600 to help me conserve my costs two years ago. It has grown to close to $16000.00 in repairs so far. With the engine it would have ended up costing me a further $10,000.00!! Totalling close to $30k!! So you have to stop somewhere. I am going to have it towed away so that I can part it out. At least I will get something for it! Its practically new everything except an engine of course. Some would say you should have fixed it and some said use it as a boat anchor!! So now you know why my chocolate bars are so expensive!
