Last week a restaurant in Minnesota added a “minimum wage fee” to its receipts. Of course this outraged idiot liberals, and made Glenn Beck very happy. And why wouldn’t it? Capitalism! Transparency! No ulterior motive whatsoever!
Everyone should love it.
In fact, a small restaurant in Tennessee, Billy’s Diner, decided to take this idea one step further.
“Yeah, we realized that we could drop the price of our cheeseburger down to just fifteen cents, if we count all of our overhead and secondary expenses as fees instead,” explains Bil, founder and owner of Billy’s Diner.
As usual, liberal patrons were outraged by this move. One took a photo of his receipt for a cheeseburger with his phone, and it has gone viral circulating the internet:
“I feel so cheated!” the anonymous liberal patron whined, “I was told the cheeseburger was fifteen cents, and I ended up paying over ten dollars!”
Clearly, he doesn’t understand capitalism.
“See in a way the way we have our receipt is more honest,” explains Bil. “We show people exactly what they are paying for. Cheeseburgers really aren’t that expensive, you know. There are all these other factors.”
When we asked Bil why the receipt did not show a “business owner’s salary” fee, he said “This interview is over!” and walked away.
