There's one thing I hate about shopping in the US. You have to make allowances for sales tax.
In Australia, if you pick up an item priced at 19.90, you pay 19.90. In Florida, you pick up something labeled 19.90 and then the sales tax pushes the final price over 20.50. The difference is "Can I hand them a 20?" In one case yes, and you get change. In the other case no. They will be waiting for more money.
