Me: “Your total is $22.15 with tax.”

Customer: “What? How can that be?”

Me: “Well, you had one stamp at $13.95, and one candle at $6.95.”

Customer: “That doesn’t add up!”

Me: “Fourteen plus seven is twenty-one, and then with sales tax.”

Customer: “I still don’t know how that adds up. Oh well…I guess math has changed with inflation and all.”
