The Thirst For Taxes

I met a potential work-related client at Borders for coffee today. I don’t drink coffee, so I just bought bottled water. Because the tab was small, I won’t claim it as an expense at work.

That means I get to record the 5.75 percent in taxes I paid to the D.C. government. Yes, you read that right — 5.75 percent taxes on a bottle of water, another 10 cents out of my pocket.
