Happy In Bag

They're a common site outside tax preparation services this time of year. Men in Uncle Sam costumes emphatically attempt to cajole citizens into visiting accountants, usually with the promise of an instant tax refund. I'm always startled by the enthusiasm of these barkers. They smile, wave and shout at passing traffic for hours on end. I wonder if they're spiffed for each customer they attract or for each car that honks at them. I hope so.
