So this guy came in and bought a bag of chips.Our chips are now 1.29 plus tax,it comes out to 1.38 total.This guy argued with me all through the transation and then finally accepted that it was 1.38.And finally he leaves but then comes right back.He demands a receipt because he just can't get it,how it was 1.38.So Here it goes...



Me
Dumbass-DA

Me-- It was 1.38 because it is now 1.29 for a bag of chips.I already told you that.
DA-- I need a receipt,I just don't understand.
Me--Rinse lather repeat
Da-Looks at receipt and says well I want to return these,I see some bags that have .99 on them.
Me--Starts the return while DA goes to get .99 bag of chips. I start to hand back his whole .32 difference.
DA-Here I want to give you .68 cents so you can give me a whole dollar back.
I Give him his dollar and he leaves.

I mean really .32 fucking cents.He had designer sunglasses and clothes on,WTF

Depends on the state...some states don't tax food, others do.

Department stores *sigh*

Up here in Canadaland we are taxed on everything as far as I know. Essentially when I purchase something I assume it's going to be taxed. Just how it works.

Wisconsin taxes everything, and the suggestion of a tax-free day or two is blasphemy.

I can't believe anyone would actually make a big deal over 32 cents. But then again, I have had people complain over 1 cent:confused: I even had a customer accuse me of stealing from her because I accidentally shorted her 1 cent.

tax is paid on certain items in ca, but every state i've been to, tax has been there (except oregon), so this guy is out of line. i'm betting his 'designer' get up was nothing but cheap knockoffs; cheap is as cheap does, after all.

In TX, some foods are taxed, and some aren't Usually, foods you don't need, candy junk food etc, is taxed.

Yeah I saw a customer complain once because their item was .01 higher than last week...


Yeah tax laws in AZ are fun, in Avondale where I live, everything is taxed, I cross the street into Phoenix, and FOOD items (chips and drinks are included) are NOT taxed.

Sorta the same with New Mexico. I think the determination here is if it's a container that can be consumed immediately. Like a snack bag of chips, a 20 oz. soda, that type of thing.

Did you know Wisconsin has a toilet flushing tax? I kid you not.

Which explains why my water bill is always sky high and why everywhere I go, toilets are always unflushed and full of toilet paper.

and some states are now going to tax specific foods just to force you to be healthy. in NY they're planning to (or have, i should check up on that) put taxes on things like non-diet soda.

if chips aren't taxed yet i'm sure they'll be taxed soon.

(we should make the state motto, "you'll be healthy, even if we have to tax you to death over it)
