This is the USA, they need to be up your ass all the time about everything.
Don't pretend Mick, you know how Effed up we are. Go back in time quite a way and it's not so bad but you know the pot of bullshit we deal with.
And the going rate around here is $20 to $35 plus tax on everything, everything. Tax the shipping, tax the sale price, tax the transfer fee. Hell, why not tax the tax. There's a bunch of people who don't feel like working that count on that money to support their drug habit and keep them obese.
