Took a cab from Burnsville” is synonymous with being penny wise and dollar foolish. In Minneapolis Minnesota a national fried chicken chain advertised a one day chicken special. When it was discovered the only local Minneapolis store did not honor the national special local TV crews went onto the scene to get footage of the patron’s disappointment. One of the patrons interviewed complained loudly "I took a cab from Burnsville" which is a distant suburb of Minneapolis where the expense of a cab ride would be many magnitudes times the savings of the chicken special.
