I'll wake up half an hour earlier in order to save 60 bucks

Oh and since we were chatting about constantly being surprised by the financial privilege of coworkers, I’m flying away today! (Yay!)

I was trying to figure out what time I had to wake up to catch my flight.

Coworker: it takes 30 minutes to get to the airport.

Me: no, it takes about 45. I safely plan for an hour.

Coworker: for a taxi?

Me: a taxi costs a minimum of $48 to the airport, not including tax and tip. It ends up being like $60… The bus is $2.50.

Coworker: just take the taxi!

Me: … No.
