I was at the local franchise of Five Star Chicken, picking up some dinner for myself. There was a bit of a wait, but thank god, there was only one guy infront of me.
Random Guy: I’d like two pieces of Crunchy Masala Chicken.
Chicken Guy: That’ll be 84 rupees , sir.
Random Guy: 84! The menu says that it’s 39 rupees per piece. So two pieces should be 78 rupees!
Chicken Guy: Sir, taxes not included in the price.
Random Guy: Where it does say that!
Chicken Guy: Here!
*Points at the menu card which explicitly mentions that local taxes are added to the mentioned price*
Random Guy: I don’t want to pay tax!
Chicken Guy: Errr…
Me: Yay! More power to the common man! Yeah, screw the system! Yeah, f*** the government!
*What I thought was a murmur under my breath, was actually shouted out pretty loud. Loud enough to catch the attention of nearby shoppers*
*Chicken Guy and Random Guy give me a look as if I’d just escaped from the loony bin*
Me: Errr, I’ll have whatever he’s having. I’ll pay the taxes too!
(So much for being anti-authoritarian)
PS: Their chicken is really good. If you’re in Bangalore, try them out!
PPS: No, I’m not being paid to advertise them. Though it would be super cool.
