2-dollar indecision penalty
At a local brunch restaurant, you can get an order of Eggs Benedict for something like $6.50. You can get an order of Eggs Florentine for $6.00. You can get a half-order of either for $4.00. If you split the difference, and get one of each, your bill comes to $8.00: the 2-dollar indecision penalty.
