My brother Seth’s flight east on Friday night got cancelled and he ended up routed through O’Hare International Airport in Chicago in the middle of the night. Since we can’t carry our own water on airplanes anymore, and since, as humans we have a tendency to get thirsty, he was forced to buy overpriced water. That part I can understand. I don’t like it, but I understand it. What I don’t understand is the extra tax on the water. Keep in mind that sales tax in Chicago is 6.25%.

11.5%? How you gonna go to school like that O’Hare International?
