Did you ever do the math and calculate how much money McDonalds is ripping you off for when you buy a Big Mac? Think about this, you can buy a double cheeseburger for $ 1.25, you pay $ 3.79 for a Big Mac, have you ever thought what the difference was between the two? First the double cheeseburger, a bun, two pieces of meat, cheese and condiments. The Big Mac, bun, two pieces of meat, cheese, lettuce, their special sauce and another piece of bread. So you wind up paying an extra $2.54 for some lettuce, a bit of sauce and another slice of bun. Now tell me that isn't a rip off? And since the price can vary from McDonalds in other areas the ripoff is even more.
