Did you know? Thanks to inflation, every 90s kid's prized possession now costs almost double the amount. Gen Z, gear up to channel your inner Boomer because a Twitter user just pointed out that apparently our beloved Add gel pen will now burn a hole in your pocket of a whopping 40 bucks. WTF!
Check out the Tweet here:
Today I learnt that an Ad Gel pen now costs Rs. 40. 40 RUPEES FOR AD GEL PEN— Ruchita (@roocheetah) June 23, 2022
Forty rupees for an Add gel pen is crazy talk. I'd pay like twenty tops. Now I get why my mom would present me with an ass-whopping every time I asked for a new pen. Wow, Raashi do you hear yourself?
Naturally, like me Twitter also entered the humaare zamaane mein era:

I wonder how much Parker pens cost now. Still remember they used to start from ₹100 when I was a kid, and my tuition teacher would give one to the student who scored the highest marks in an exam https://t.co/AG8qJ9Xkjn— Xi Simping (@micky864) June 24, 2022

*Me a Goldex Klear user trying to figure what the actual fuck is Ad Gel Pen https://t.co/V38aYk6y4b— Harsh Pathak (@whoharshpathak) June 23, 2022
Ahh, this brings back memories of that asshole spoilt brat in class who would loudly boast about their elaborate pen collection from Canada and the US and all you would have is your trusted Add gel pen. Is bragging about pens still a thing or is it all about likes and followers now?
