Among the biggest casualties as a result of the global pandemic are ongoing supply chain issues, which has resulted in a number of items costing considerably more than they once did.

As a result, a coffee and pastry will likely go for $12 or more.

But even before the pandemic first hit in March of 2020, the cost of various things still proved to be a major point of contention, namely at how overpriced they were.

These could be things which might seem frivolous in the grand scheme of things, such as a Caribbean vacation, or things which were literally life or death, such as healthcare.

Redditor madmart07 was curious to hear the things the Reddit community were worth far less than their asking price, leading them to ask:

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.
