Here's how people reacted:

An individual wrote, "I generally enjoy reading your posts, but complaining about inflation when ordering breakfast at a New York City hotel is a little bit much. You knew going in that it was going to be at least twice as much as breakfast anywhere else, but you did it and added a Coke as well."

A second said, "Dude, it's room service in a Manhattan hotel. You know you're paying for the privilege of not going outside and finding a considerably less expensive food truck on the nearest corner. Elitist."

"You could have walked to McDonalds and paid $20-25 for the same breakfast. Life is full of choices. You chose poorly," commented a third.

A fourth added, "You order room service in an NYC hotel and it Biden’s fault that it’s expensive?"

A fifth shared, "Are you seriously complaining about a room service bill and crying about inflation? Room service has always cost absurd amounts of money compared to buying that same food elsewhere. It's like saying the cost of food in an airport costs more because of inflation."
