Taxation With Agitation

Me: “Is that it for you tonight, ma’am?”

Girl: “Nah, can I get a pack of cigarettes?”

Me: “Sure. Can I see your ID?”

Girl: “Ya know in high school, when we learned about the Boston Tea Party?”

Me: “Yeah…?”

Girl: “Well, they raised taxes on the tea, and they threw it in the harbor.”

Me: “Yeah, I remember.”

Girl: “Well, they just upped the taxes on the smokey treats…what’re WE gonna do about it?”

Me: “I dunno…what do you think?”

Girl: “Well, I don’t know…you’re the gas station lady – figured you’d have the answers.”

Me: “Sorry, I don’t smoke.”

Girl: “I PROTEST YOU THEN! I’M NOT GETTING ANYTHING HERE EVER AGAIN!” *stomps off*
