Delayed Monday Musings With Sassy: Stupid Human Shopping

Kitties - Sassy here.  My Monday's Musings was slightly delayed this week, but the rant is still hot!  Today I want to talk about humans and their inability to do math!  This last weekend in Dallas was crazy.  Here in Texas, we have one weekend before school starts that is a "Tax Free" weekend.  Shoppers can buy certain items, such as school clothes and supplies tax free.  This is a big shopping weekend here in Texas.  A lot of people come in from Oklahoma, Arkansas and Lousianna for this event.  Mommie knows to just stock up and stay away from the stores for the whole weekend.  It is like the day after Thanksgiving in August. 




Now lets do the math on this event, since apparently the humans can't.  The tax rate in this area of Texas is 8.25%.  Most people from out of town stay at least overnight for this weekend.  So lets stay that the average school supply shopping human spends $400 on supplies and clothes.  Not paying taxes on this saves them $33 dollars.  To shop this weekend they will spend lets say $100 on a hotel, $75 on food and $50 on gas. 

So the brillant humans spent $225 to save $33.....words just fail me........

I think it must be the allure of being in the same state as YOU, darling Sassy. That's totally worth, like, $375, don't you think?
