It’s doubtful that anyone actually enjoys figuring out exactly how much something with a listed price of $24.99 will actually cost once the tax is included, especially those of us who still carry cash — the final figure never ends up being easy to provide exact change for.

Maybe the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t.
