  • 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.

        • I can't believe Americans put up with the paying system they have. Isn't it weird to only know how much you have to pay when you're already at the register? Why won't they include tax on the price tag?

          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."

              • Omg... I'm sorry for sharing so much but my family is ****ed up. My grandmother had an insurance policy for 16 years but my aunt told me it hasn't been paid in the last 3 months

                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:

                      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

                        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...

                            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.

                            • 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...

                              • 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.

                                    That's how our system is. We know how much it is without tax. And we know how much tax is for our region. It doesn't bother me because I'm used to it.

                                          But we know as well as it is always on the receipt when you've paid. But it is much easier to know on forehand how much something cost in total.

                                              I do think it is but since I am only a resident in Austria, whenever I would go to other countries and bought things that were expensive I was able to get the included taxes back as a "tourist" called the Value Added Tax....so even though for most people the tax was already included, I had to work backwards and remove it to see how much I'd get back I wouldn't have cared much but the IRS always wants to know how much you make or spend abroad so yeah

                                              Also, I think it's a funny concept but in reality people in Europe seem to pay way more in taxes for good than in the US. Sure, in the US it's added at the register which makes it seem like you're paying way more than in Europe where it's included in the price tag. But here in NYC for example the tax on stuff is only 8-9%......in comparison when I go to Italy next week, apparently the VAT is between 20-25% so I'll get all those taxes back at the airport before I leave, which makes things seem very cheap when u take that much off the price tag...meaning that even though the tax is already in the price tag...u guys pay way more in taxes

                                              • I mean, most of Europe is a mess tbh, but I feel that taxes are somewhat more reasonably used in here. You have big taxes, but it all comes back somehow (medical care system says hi).

                                                    I don''t understand and have never experienced anything other than the UK system - and it works perfectly fine. Not sure I like the sound of the US system!
