    It’s actually a clever pricing system; guilt and anxiety will often convince people to voluntarily pay more than they might be okay with being charged at a place with posted prices.

    but if something makes me feel guilty/anxious it's incredibly unlikely that i'll ever go back

    Yeah but you just paid a full years' salary for a cup of coffee

    When you're arguing about material costs only, that might be relevant if you... made the muffin yourself.

    If you bought it at a cafe or something similar, you also have to cover the establishment's worker salaries and general overhead, like rent and utilities and whatnot.

    A coffee and muffin are worth 4-7usd for me, but in this setup I'd probably pay more (knowing not every customer is covering their costs) and not return.

    it doesn't actually work out this way, though when the numbers are crunched

    The thing where I see voluntary donations really work with regard to the rich is charity events

    Like, as a teenager I did a pay-what-you-want for a bake sale to raise funds for stuff and that's when the loaded 60-somethings really busted out the $20 bills for a cookie

    you should be able to haggle for anything, you should be able to call reggie fils-aime's personal cell phone while he's trying to have dinner with his family and talk him down to $250 for a switch

    He's not with Nintendo anymore. Now you have to negotiate with Bowser.

    I want to call Reggie.

    We're not interested in Reggie's tired excuses, we want results. Now tell this Gamestop cashier to sell us a switch for $250.

    I wish a car dealership near me would try this "pay what you want" thing.

    Rip a gnarly toot right in the salesperson's office and say "Keep the change." and then hop into the used 2001 Subaru Legacy I decided on
