    Americans just care so much about taxes cuz they get wasted anyway, it's extremly stupid concept tbh. Now if there were two prices, with and without tax, that'd make sense as you would know the real cost and rhe taxes at the same time, but like this is just stupid.

    Tlfan, so sorry. They are a mess, 3k is not a pocket money, tf.stay strong <3

    Yeah I'd prefer that^ although I'd be messy since different states have different tax percentages on the things thy do tax, so it would be a messy job for the manufacturer but hey if other places can do it I see why not.
    Also I believe certain people like those who have been in the military gets taxes less or something like that...

    First time I was in the US I went up to the register and was waiting till I got my meal (at Wendy's), while she was waiting for me to pay the taxes. I was like: "What is she waiting for? I paid already."
    It depends on the state also, like when I lived in Texas you would be added taxes on EVERYTHING at the register even a small candy bar. In he state of NY it's different from what I see, like when you buy clothes sometimes they dont add taxes you just pay exactly what it says on the price tag but if it's an expensive item you'll pay taxes...I believe if the single piece of clothing or pair of shoes exceeds $110 you'll be taxed, if ya under you're exempt

    I think grocery itself are also exempt but eating at restaurants isn't
    That's why it would even make more sense to already include the taxes on the price tag, so you're never surprised when you get to the register. Here we pay taxes too, but it is always included on the price tag, so you never get to the register with a shortage of money.

    Now they are asking me for $3,000. I am so pissed. My mother told my aunt that if my grandmother needed help with the insurance payments, my aunt was to call my mother to get help. This bitch needs to understand that I am in college, and i cannot throw money around like that. :evil: :evil:
    Ugh what a difficult situation to put you in! I think your aunt should've told your mom back when the insurance wasn't paid and not say now that she needs money...

    Are the two d's actually pronounced different than one d? Because I'm really curious why you would start a word with two d's.

    also it's Gaelic not Irish edit: just googled it and you can call it Irish too #mybad
    Gaelic and Irish are different

    Gaelic is like a group of languages

    J.lo (Feat. Pitbull) did a phenomenal job in Selenas movie. Her story is still so sad to this day. But it's so beautiful the legacy she has with her short time of being a star.

    22 years ago today Selena Quintanilla was murdered
    As a Spanish speaker and Texan I grew up with her music although by the time I could remember anything she was already killed (I was only months old when it happened) but her songs kept being played through the years. She was also a great fashion designer and had just opened her boutique, I wonder how far she would've gone if she were still alive

    Btw, with the biopic with Jlo playing her, still love this scene!
