The Tax Man
Ah, there’s nothing funny about that??!
Yea, I know… 🙁
Yesterday I discussed how I put off my taxes until the last minute. Typical procrastinator action. And from some of the feedback I got, I wasn’t alone. There are tons of other procrastinators out there. But only a few that procrastinated on taxes till the last day. Although, many did wait until this past weekend.
Is there anything funny about taxes? Not really, it is a necessary evil driven by others.
Supposedly if we stop paying them our schools would collapse, our highways would fall apart, police and firemen would be home sitting on couches eating bon bons.
Some are mad that only 50% of the population pays taxes.
Some are mad that the rich don’t pay enough.
The rich are mad that they worked their ass off for what they made, why should they be punished
Envy is every where. Rich are envious of the poor not paying anything and the poor are envious of the rich that they make so much.
Someone the other day was upset that they are barely making it and owe so much money, meanwhile someone that made the same amount got back a check for almost $5000 while the other one owed $3000. One feeling punished for not having kids and the other being rewarded for having them.
Tax code ~ tax breaks ~ got to love them.
Personally, I’m not taking sides. But I do agree with everyone, taxes suck. And like it our not, they aren’t going away anytime soon. And today I will be bummed since I owe.
But since my blog is about finding humor in the bad in our life. There will be tears of laughter damn it, and not tears of watching my money go to Uncle Sam.
Ok, maybe I can do at least a 2 to 1 ratio. There you go. For each 3 tears, 2 will be from laughing and 1 for thinking about my money keeping the teachers, policemen, & firemen working. And I guess if a fourth one falls, I’ll try and remember that someday it will fix that bumpy road I drive over each day.
Oh, and if you haven’t hit send yet on your Turbo Tax…….You might want to do that….
And if you are filing by mail…..Yea, have fun in those lines
~~~till we laugh again~~~
