tax man cometh, per gallon cost


well todays the day
its the day the tax man cometh
at least it got delayed by a holiday that ive never heard of

for a lot of people that did allow them to have another two
days to get things done

my taxes have been done now for 2 months
usually i wait until the last day to mail in or now
electronically send in my tax forms and would
send my check so that the letter was post dated
the last day

this year was different as my situation changed last year
so that we got a refund instead of having to pay
dont really remember that ever happening before

it did feel good to get that check and not have to send
one to uncle sam

is it better to have more deducted than what you owe so youll
get  a refund
always thought it was better to not do that until this year
when i got this refund

before you could put the money in a money market and make
2-5% on the money during the year then pay your taxes on
april 15 with a check from the money market account and
make a few bucks on the interest
but now
the money market rate and savings rates are 0 or almost 0
many people recommend you just have more withdrawn than
necessary for taxes so that on this day you dont have to pay and
will have a refund from uncle sam for use by you for what you
want to use it

my times have changed havent they
the tax man cometh today
maybe next year he wont have to come at all


doesnt it tick you off to have to pay for that printers ink
i even tried buying one of those kits-did it twice-to refill
my ink cartridges for a very reasonable price
the only problem is i got ink everywhere
i even still have ink around my nails that i think has been
tattooed permanently
almost that gothic look

recently i read where printer ink costs $10,000 per gallon
makes gasoline feel cheap doesnt it

ive decided that sometimes in life we are just all screwed and
thats just the way it is

one is printers ink

another is smartphone cell phone cost-they just have us where they
want us and we cant do anything about it

another is gas prices-were at their mercy arent we

and then
theres taxes
unless your the top 1% youre just screwed again when it comes to
