This has been a very trying year.
Jan, Feb I thought I was on the top of the world and things had made a turn for the better. Thought we would actually be able to afford some family trips again. Now I’m just trying to survive after my wife decided to throw away the last 20 years of our history including almost 18 years of marriage. Goes and cheats on me tries to hide that and blame me and my reward is $700 of child support and not seeing my kid every day.
This is worse then the year when I died (got better). :(
I know it’s a day early but I couldn’t resist.
Coworker today: “Oh you sew? Will you fix this button/fallen hem/torn sleeve/patch these pants/make me _______?”
Me: “sure I charge $5-$25 for repairs and for commissions it’s materials plus a $10 hourly rate.”
Coworker: “wait you mean you charge for stuff, its not free?”
This mentality is why I don’t work on people’s cars anymore. Did a clutch job and found a broken part ($60). I’m saving this person over $300 in labor alone plus the parts markup most shops add so probably closer to $400?and They wanted me to pay for the part accusing me of breaking it.
The Inspector General says that the IRS filed disposal documents for computer hardware that still existed. Oops.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) prematurely “retired” computer data storage devices worth millions of dollars and filed “disposal” documents for computer hardware that still existed, according to an internal inspector general report reviewed by The Daily Caller.
IRS commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress that ex-official Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a June 2011 computer crash and that her hard drive storing those emails was “recycled.”
The IRS also claimed that it lost emails from six other employees due to separate computer crashes. U.S. Archivist David Ferriero said that the IRS “did not follow the law,” which requires government agencies to keep email records, to print out emails in case there’s a computer crash, and to notify Ferriero’s office when records are lost or destroyed.
This is a crime and shows government using the IRS for retaliation. It is the worst kind of corruption there can be. Get rid of the IRS and remove this power from government back to the people. Www.Fairtax.org would end all of this.
