Would this piss you off if a bar....

Would it piss you off if a bar charged 8.25% sales tax (normal in Texas) on credit card tabs but ate the sales tax themselves on cash purchases?

To clarify a bit... CURRENTLY all bars here eat the tax on ALL purchases... it has to be built into the price. They aren't allowed to break it out but that all changes January 1st.
Of course it would be a complete pain to add sales tax to cash purchases but a no brainer for cc purchases.

But let's assume consumers are completely ignorant of any changes in tax code. They only see that now their credit card tabs have sales tax added. I understand a certain amount of people will be pissy but how bad would you rate the backlash?

My apologies for calling you a dumbass then. I just get tired of people giving me shit for the way I spend money.

I'm already paying about 5x price just because there's pu$$y around.

And let's be honest - that's the reason why anyone under 30 is going.

Everyone knows they're paying for it in the end but no one likes being taxed (and enough already with ****ing the bar owners.)

If you aren't looking to pick up chicks and you want cheap drinks... it works. If you want chicks, another buddy of mine (from high school) owns a bar in the same parking lot. That bar is slightly higher prices and has "fancy" beers and brings in the hipsters and young girls. Huge deck out back as well. The special THERE tonight (I had to look this one up) is $2.00 DUNKELWEISS & $3 JAGERS

they don't want to charge $X.75 because that pretty much ensures the tips go from $1 to $0.75.
