Why isn’t my pay increasing with the cost of living??

I am given a petrol card by the company for my car, as part of my pay package/benefits and thus I hardly take a look at the petrol prices anymore. Today, I was shocked to see that Syn 5000 is now a whopping S$1.677! I thought a few months ago, it was only S$1.5XX?!


These 4 words had me in hysterics the previous evening. No one could truly understand why I was laughing so badly. If only they saw CF’s facial expression when he uttered those words. ROFL.
