Age, Debt and Taxes


To all of my tax paying friends stricken by financial woes:

Like age, debt is just a number. Right? Right!
This too (tax time) shall pass...until next year.

Have a good week regardless.

  1. Oh why, oh why is this not posting to blog roll, such that I have no comments whatsoever except this rant? I think it's the photo that blogger doesn't like. But I do. She's cute; she's staying.

    THANK YOU FOR VISITING, whether or not you leave a comment.

  2. It was too lonely without the comments. Still don't know if this posted to the blog rolls but I removed the google image of a sweet little girl who owes over 37000 in taxes even though she only owns a doll house.

  3. Yeah, right!

    To paraphrase:

    “Sticks and stones may hurt my bones
    But numbers will never hurt me…”

    But the words budget and cut back? They hurt… ;)

  7. Darn blogger. I'll bet the picture was cute, too. Maybe you should try it again?

  11. Thank you, dear friends. Taxes, and a sudden realization of astronomical debt, kicked my tuchas (yiddush for butt) this year. I'm trying to convince myself debt is just a number. And so it is. Yes, we will all survive. It's over til next year.

  12. My tuchas have been kicked too, my friend! And they will continue to be kicked because we owe (mucho dinero) to the government. And they are determined to squeeze blood out of my very pale little turnip! I wonder if I could convince them of this "just a number" theory!

  13. Debt is just a number? Unless you're the US government, that's just crazy talk!

  16. Sorry to hear about the taxes Robyn, here's hoping you get everything sorted out and sooner rather than later. I'd have liked to have seen that photo too, it sounds funny.

  17. Debt is only a number- oh if only- debt is such a burden- for me its student loans- luckily for me tax time means a little extra money though :)

  20. You are right! It's just a number. A number that never goes away...

  21. Debt IS just a number. A very, very, very large number.
    Then again, one is the loneliest number.
    But, two can be as bad as one.
    It's the loneliest number next to number one.
    Jeez, where the frig am I going with this nonsense?
    Just as well you got rid of the picture.
    Didn't sound like a nudie pic.

  22. Spoken like a wise woman. I think I will wait to pay this year's taxes next year.

  23. Taxes are evil. No other way to describe it. grrr! xo

  24. Imagine my surprise, I only worked half the year, and still had to pay taxes! What happened was the store where I worked sold early in the spring and the new owner did not take off enough taxes. After I was laid off (new owner messed up so bad and had to lay off a bunch of the staff) I got employment insurance, but I guess somehow I still owe taxed. I sent them in, but am hoping I made a mistake (I did my own) and actually do get money back. Indeed it is pretty pathetic if a person works only half they year, part time, for $10 an hour and still has to pay taxes.

  25. Tax Woes, I relate to your scenario. It's incredibly frustrating. Tax time is when the global discrepancy in wealth (which is by and large a mere matter of luck) seems most blatant. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Yes that's an appropriate word.

    PTM, did you politely leave the term "old" (and wise) out of that comment? You're so sweet.

    Al, three's a charm. But there's the third wheel. Lord, I hate being a third wheel. I'd rather be charming. Can a third wheel be charming?..Dangit, Al, you got my braincells spiraling out-of-control again.

    Pat, yeah, it festers and grows too.

    Hang tough, friends. We've got a full year ahead before having to pay taxes again.
