Taxing Taxing, Part 4

, , , , | Right | June 30, 2020

I’m working in the drive-thru. We have just brought back a sandwich we used to have, now on sale for 99¢.

Me: “Hi. May I take your order, please?”

Customer: “How much are them new chicken sandwiches?”

Me: “They’re 99¢.”

Customer: “Okay, I’ll take two of them and two of the regular dollar chicken sandwiches.”

Me: “Okay, pull around to the window and I’ll have your total.”

She arrives at the window. Her order has already been prepared and bagged.

Me: “Your total is $4.32.”

Customer: “Why is it that much?”

Me: “You wanted four sandwiches total right?”

Customer: “Yes, four of the dollar sandwiches.”

Me: “Right. They’re 99¢ each, so before tax, your total is $3.96, and after, it makes it $4.32.”

Customer: “I don’t understand how four of the $1 sandwiches come to $4.32.”

She finally pays after changing her mind to just get one sandwich.

Me: *To my coworker* “I’m glad I understand first-grade math.”
