Hmm, that's probably for the best. And that is clutch, definitely.

What drove me nuts in the US is how the sales tax isn't included in the display price. I hated being charged more than what was displayed! It felt deceptive.

it's not deceptive if you know the deal.

in most states there's no tax on food and clothes anyway. the essentials. (meals are taxed)

You know who does include it, though?

Baseball stadiums. And you hate baseball.

Kind of ironic.

It's still irritating as fuck. I mean, if I see $10, I expect to pay $10. Not $11 or whatever. Here, all taxes are included in the display price.
