1%?! good lord! how about 1 rib!

for those of you who do not know what that title means:


anyway… today’s the last day (in california) to buy stuff at the 7.75% sales tax… in most cities, sales tax will increase by 1% to 8.75% — but some cities will be higher (like LA) — check out the other cities (thanks to the oc register)

so if you’ve been thinking about buying something or other… it’s best to do it now to get the most out of your money…

i was also thinkin’ about it — some people use the outdated method of tipping their waiter/waitress by doubling the tax (that’s kinda crap by the way — that’d only tip the person 15.5%… lookin’ out for you, greg)

so now with a 8.75% tax (and higher), you’ll be doing the slightly better 17.5% tip… food for thought (no pun intended)

    doubling the tax is just for morons who don’t know math (or don’t have a tip calculator on their phone)
