Your tax dollars at work

Often when I buy, say, a one dollar item from the variety store on my block, the cashier already has the till open and just types in "1.15", holding out her hand as if I didn't know how a cash register works.

I don't complain because I'd rather they use that money to build their business than hand it over for the Party to use, but they could at least go halfway on it.
