The new insurance

I buy car insurance. I buy life insurance. I buy home-owners insurance. I buy health insurance. And now, I buy tomato insurance. Does anyone else feel this way when paying full price for fast food without tomatoes that are built into the price?

Not sure how wide-spread this is, but around here (North Carolina), they aren't serving tomatoes on sandwiches without you asking for them special--and some not at all--due to the cold weather in Florida. So, I pay for that full-price tomato-sporting chicken sandwich without a tomato so some demanding person can ask for one that costs more than normal. The cost is spread among all contributers, and life goes on.

It's a risk pool, and we're all in it. As for those not paying their tomato insurance, and instead just letting us suckers pay for theirs as well (in their most dire hours of need) well, there aught to be a law.
