When we fool ourselves

As for me, I am doing a com­pa­ra­tive ana­ly­sis. Could the gain be repla­ced by an even grea­ter gain? In my case, the ans­wer is gene­ral­ly yes. For gaso­line, dri­ving 30km to save $2.50 seems ridi­cu­lous to me in terms of fuel consump­tion, eco­lo­gy and even time taken, because yes, the wai­ting time to fill up is not a gain, but a loss. So 30 to 45 minutes to save $2.50 seems like less than the mini­mum wage to me.

As for the refund, it is up to you to assert your rights if the mer­chant is at fault. In Que­bec, for example, a price error is worth 10$ for the consu­mer in addi­tion to the dif­fe­rence in price paid if the amount of the item exceeds a value of $10. Paying $30 for a pro­duct that should have cost $15 will cost you $5. Paying $30 for a pro­duct that should have cost $5 will cost you $0. Howe­ver, if you change your mind like in my sce­na­rio, wai­ting 60 minutes for $5 is not pos­sible for me.

This is why I believe that inves­ting in things that are not pro­jects should be avoi­ded. Social net­works are an example. Does this mean not doing any com­mer­cial repre­sen­ta­tion? No, a mini­mum is requi­red all the same.
