Prices are going up everywhere.  Everything is expensive.  It's not just one thing, it's everything.

Meat is expensive, eggs are expensive, milk is expensive, and apparently chicken is super expensive.

I was doing what I do when I have a few minutes of free time and flipping through Facebook.  Then I see it, I see a receipt that was posted from Popeye's.  It was for a couple of combo meals and, oh my gosh the cost of those meals were astronomical, $17 and $18.  That is for a combo meal.  A COMBO MEAL!!!!

I mean look:

I was floored looking at the receipt.  I know the cost of everything has gone up but dang, that's a lot of money for fast-food chicken.  As I read through the comments, I got a good laugh.

R u kidding? That is ridiculous. Red Lobster is sounding reasonable.

You can get a GOOD. meal for what you can get fast food for!!

Dayum that's high dollar chicken. Used to feed family for $20

I didn't know they opened a Popeye's inside the airport movie theater

Those are just a few of the responses to this outrageous receipt.  Now to be fair, this was a receipt from a truck stop Popeye's in Nevada, but it's only a matter of time before this is a reality everywhere.

Just think a few years ago you could get a combo meal and just about every fast food place for around $5-$6 total.  Now, you're lucky if you leave the drive-thru without paying less than $10.  Unfortunately, we are only going to see prices rise instead of drop in the next few months.
