Opportunity Cost

by Jadrian

Tuco shows up in a junkyard expecting to purchase 2 pounds of meth from Walter and Jesse, but the two of them only brought about half a pound. Tuco isn't happy because he's wasted his time coming out for such a small quantity and isn't too keen on their excuses. He docks part of their pay for "wasting his time." All of our actions, including taking time to do something, has costs even if the price is zero. People often forget the value of their time, but not Tuco.
