Yeah, I don't know why we do that. It's interesting that you were called out on it. In Raleigh it's a rare occurrence to say it with regularity after the fifth grade. Teachers here aren't supposed to say anything if you don't say it, so naturally no one says it. True. That is normal, My school, however, has the worst football team in the county. They're not really thought highly of. In NY what I noticed was that the sale tax was included in the price you saw under the item which I thought was neat.
