$19 For A Salad at LAX

"When the customer left, I flagged over the barmaid. Did you just sell a $19 salad? She rolled her eyes and nodded her head. It's ridiculous, she told me. I always make sure I say the price out loud before ringing it up. Customers yell at me all the time when they hear the price, she said. I told her it was a shame that she had to take the brunt of it all, but I didn't mean it."

Why a $19 Airport Salad Has Us Very, Very Worried
