Usually, it's not a good idea to talk about political stuff with your customers, especially not during the process where they want to buy something from you. This dialog just happened:
Customer: [...] because the VAT is now 27% here in Hungary.
Me: Woha! 27%!? Has your government gone crazy?
Customer: Yes, indeed. It is indeed crazy. Fuck them. :-(
But looks like I was on the safe way here anyway. Nobody likes taxes. :)
