Man, I'm going to be busy as HELL this week, but it's all good. Except the part about the taxes...
Yeah, it's not like I didn't know April 15 wouldn't be here sooner or later, but doesn't that date just sneak up on you? Isn't it freaky that April is almost half over? Anyway, it's my own fault for waiting so goddamn long, and since I'm getting a refund, wouldn't you think I'd be all over filing ASAP?
Let me tell you what pisses me off about tax season. It's not that I mind paying taxes; I understand that we have to fund libraries, schools, hospitals, etc., and God knows policemen and firemen and soldiers deserve a salary. I've been doing my own through Turbo Tax for the past several years, and for the most part they make it easy enough, but sometimes I reach a point where I don't know what the eff I'm doing and that's when the old blood pressure starts to elevate.
Why does the government have to make it so goddamn complicated ?
I consider myself to be pretty well educated and if I'm sitting there like a moron, how do these friggin' idiots that I see in the grocery store who take the crap out of their cart at the checkout and then because there's only like five or six items, decide they don't need the cart anymore so they walk away and leave it behind as if they've totally forgotten they pushed the goddamn around the store for the past 20 minutes and now since I'm the one whose supposed to do something with it, I decide to give it a little shove just so it clips them in the back of the ankles.
That's not mean, is it?
Anyway, how do they muster the intellect to do their taxes?
I guess they pay someone to do the job, and that leads me to another question: Why does the government require us to do something that's so goddamn complicated that even a smart person like moi has to hire a specialist?
It shouldn't be this hard, that's all I'm saying.
