Penny Lane, and the Penny-Less Lane

Two trips to McDonald's on Wednesday, one to each of the two McDonald's in town. Same owner. Same prices. Same tax rate. Ordered the same thing that I always do: two plain cheeseburgers and a ex-large Coke. Two different totals! And yes, I know that I should be more concerned about eating four cheeseburgers and drinking two supersize Cokes each day than about the penny. Yes, that's right, and you could see this one coming, like a freight train coming up the freeway, I'm being penny wise, pound foolish.
