    Non-Plussed With Tax

    | Washington D.C., USA | At The Checkout, Politics, Uncategorized

    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.”
