This story was posted on rec.humor.funny. I assume it is true. I thought the
readers of this list would find it interesting. (Doug Salomon)

I was behind a little girl at a checkout stand. She held two boxes of dog
food priced at $0.99 and had two dollar bills to pay for them with. When the
cashier explained that with tax it would come to $2.16, the girl hesitated,
thought about it, then said "I'll just buy one."

She opened the newly purchased box, took out a 20 cents off coupon and
bought the second box.

I was impressed.
