Nice one! (My mom let me sample it as a kid.)

Shopping in a small store I once gave the clerk fits when he rang up the price with the sales tax already included, so there was no record of the tax. I insisted that if he didn't record it as sales tax I wasn't going to pay anything more than the base price.

Guess I was just feeling ornery that day. Sometimes I can be a real PITA. 8-)
