Taco Bell Tax Bamboozle

Last night's supper was Burrito Supremes from Taco Bell. I had a coupon 2/$2 ... a really good price for these burritos. The counter person keyed in the order and the total came to $3.37. I told her that couldn't be correct. She said "It's with tax," and I pointed out that it was way too much tax for $2.00. So she called over a supervisor who gave me the correct total: $2.37. Of course, I wasn't surprised at the mistake, nor with the idiocy that she thought a $2 purchase would have $1.37 tax on it. What was most disappointing is that the employee never bothered offering a "sorry."
