Does everyone else get charged tax, or is it just us lucky ones from California? The extra $50 kind of kills it for me.

Rude awakening huh, dude--cuz, like Massdrop is- like this California company or some shit (I know, right? It's complicated) and so, like doing business in California, they like, have to charge taxes when they sell stuff in, like California--it's like some government-conspiracy shit--I read about it once, I think. But, like MD is cool, dude--you know, they're like, some really mellow dudes from the Bay, so, like, they don't like taxes either dude--no way, but you know, they don't need a bunch of government-suits, mess'n with their minds 'n shit, so they, like--you know, just go along with it.
But hey--it's cool, it's Cali--we still got like Malibu and Huntington, and Trader Joes 'n shit--and weed's legal, so, like--whatever, right?

Dude, like everywhere?
Well that would pretty much have to be the case--since they're owned by European grocery conglomerate ALDI and presently operate in 43 states, have 474 stores and generate annual sales just North of thirteen billion "OK" dollars. But of course, they did get their start in that one little store on Arroyo Secco Blvd--in Pasadena, California.
But dude, feel free to chime in with newsy business tid-bits any time--hell, I'd even call the WSJ tip line with that one.

Oh--you must have to work?
I keep forgetting about all the little people who don't live the life of leisure the rest of us one-percenters do.

Two fields in which you evidently have greater knowledge than I. Accordingly, I defer to your expertise. By the way--I'm sure you meant whining rather winning? Language's can be fussy things--perhaps English is not your native tongue?

Keep trying you old putz, I made no mistake with my English. The light bulb might turn on in your head sooner or later (probably later). Maybe you can use all of that 1% cash and pay someone to explain it to you.

I don't know what could have given you that impression--I'm an easy going fellow, with a mild-mannered temperament. Why--I never met a man or woman I didn't like! Perhaps someone has been misleading you?

It's tragic, I tell ya-- you're good with $650, but $700 puts it out of reach. Just another one of Life's cruel jokes.
It's like when I was about to pull the trigger on my Global 8000, and I said: "Wait, I have to pay an extra fee for some dude to fly it to me?" And the dude says: "Well, yeah, didn't you know that?" and I said: "No way!" and he said: "Yeah, way dude."

No, not really--your Mom was right. And truth be told, those guys probably wouldn't even let me in the show room. After all, do zillion-aire Jet-setters really need to shop on MD?
On the other hand, if I win one of the record breaking Mega-Millions lotteries, I will definitely fly down to Florida and let your son ride shot-gun in my new jet.
