Today Was a Crappy Day

The money broke.
The money broke.

The stench of adulthood wafts in when you hate tax day. Instead of reporting $15 in tips from my Sonic job and a 3 Musketeers wrapper, I've got some income to speak of. I mean, I can't have a long conversation about it, but it's enough to make April 15 dreadful. (Admittedly, I’ve got a number of adult-type personal issues plumping my jowls and etching the lines around my eyes, but don’t we all. Pass the white box wine, Hildegard.)

I don’t recommend calling the feds (1-800-829-1040) or the state (505-827-0827) if you don’t have to. The representatives are cranky at this point and spitting the word “ma’am” like nails from a nailgun.

The main post office in Albuquerque is open until midnight. Good luck!

    keep calling. Most of them are going to be dicks and ignore everything you say, but eventually you'll get someone who listens and will fix your shit accordingly. You just have to get that right person.

    Unless you're full of shit to begin with and plain old owe the money.

    I love Tax Day! I serves to remind me of how proud that I am of myself that I didn't turn out like one of those whiny T-baggers! (protest sign: "me no like taxes! boo-hoo!")

    Although I help fund baby killing in Afghanistan there's also a really really nice library near my house. So I take the good with the bad.

  • Death and Taxes [albert camus]  [ Fri Apr 16 2010 9:03 AM ]

    Albert Camus died in a car accident near Sens France in 1960 at the age of 46.

    In his pocket lay an unused train ticket.

    He had planned to travel by train, with his wife and his twin children.

    But at the last minute he accepted his publisher's proposal to travel with him.

    the driver of the car, Michel Gallimard, his publisher and close friend was also killed in the accident.

    How fraught with destiny is that?

    wonders in what can be found in wikipedia.
