Day 606 of 365 More.

So today I paid the federal government about $400 for the honor of having essentially been unemployed for the majority of 2007.

And people wonder why I hate both political parties of this country.

The really funny thing is, I’m getting the government kickback of $600 this year just like most people. You’d think that’d mean I could just not send in the $400 and they’d deduct it from what they’re giving me.

You’d think that, but you’d be wrong.


Just wait til I hit the Powerball and buy my own island. One Nation, under Mav. Indivisble. With licqor and orgies for all.

Until then I guess I go to bed, get up, go to work, and give the government more of what I earn.

365 days

    We get to file our tax return, but because of a screw up (a major one) on their end, we won’t even get to see it. Alas, I feel your pain.

    well yeah – what were you thinking? You know the government gets to play with the $400 and make money from interest off of it…..then they’ll give it back – with strings, I’m sure….

    …and OMG – now THAT IS frightening – Mav & Mom both into the brown paper bags at the same time……Let me get my paper cup…..

    @adayinthelife: Yeah, well on top of that, I just realized that they weren’t taking local taxes out of my check since I started this job, so that’s even more money I owe now.

    @lrayholly: heh… one of thos days I guess.

    @disco~stu: I’m actually working on beating the first one too…

    @Babs1696: Heh… yeah, see I blame her for everything. Setting a bad example and all. 🙂
