Free stuff <3

Dear Optimists,

I’m a sucker for free stuff. Pens, stickers, magazines – you name it, I want it.
Luckily, when I’m in Iceland visiting Mum I can buy tax-free*, which equals free money!

DVDs are rather cheap here, which means I always return home with a shitload of films. A penny saved is a penny gained, right? – Equals free money!!
At the shop this… girl… got quite confused when I asked for tax-free – must be her first time. After she handed me the tax-free papers, I just stood there. My DVDs were still on the counter.

“Is that all?,” I asked her, confused.
“Well. Yeah. You can have this?” She said and gave me a piece of paper.



*Tax-Free Shopping allows shoppers to reclaim the VAT(Value-Added Tax)/GST (Goods and Services Tax) they have paid on their shopping in foreign countries. Thank you for clarifying, Wiki.
