Which Sunk Cost Is The Saddest Sunk Cost?
This week’s contenders:
• A 7-day unlimited MetroCard ($29), only used four days
• A late-night bodega ice cream bar ($4), discovered the next day, unopened in my bag
• Every piece of clothing I’ve ever purchased, which I now cannot stand
• The perfect-looking peach ($2, who am I), which I was really looking forward to, but was so tasteless and terrible that I gave up and took a nap
