have you ever been in a situation where coworkers ask you how much you spent on something, like your lunch?

I brought a Whole Foods box to work. Yesterday I came down with a cold, and went to Whole Foods to get chicken soup. I decided that, while I am at it, I'll just grab some other pre made food so I can lay around and not cook/clean. I had a box to bring for lunch and had that, and my coworker acted shocked and said "wow, how much WAS that??!!"

This isn't the first job I've noticed that. Once I picked up sushi from Publix, and someone in the break room asked me what it cost. I just said "oh, like $7?" And she goes "No it wasn't. It was $12." I didn't realize she could see the label with the price.

What's an appropriate response to people who do this?
