Sorry About the "R" Rated Cartoon - but I Do Appreciate the Humor :)
*I decided to pull the "R" rated cartoon. Maybe I will put it back sometime... or not.
I am sorry about the 2nd cartoon, the "R" rated one, but I do appreciate the humor in it. Yes, I am feeling a twinge (o.k. - more than a twinge-but I'm still amused by it) of guilt in posting it. One of my absolute favorite comedies of all time is "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" and anyone who has seen that movie will remember the infamous scene where Steve Martin loses it with the clerk and he uses the "F" word, seemingly as every other word during his tirade and I think it was quite humorous. :)
Suffice it to know that I am so annoyed at myself right now, that I could spit nails at ME! I have yet to find that one small box with important info for about a quarter of the year's tax deductions. This, by the way, is why the wonderful accountant I mentioned in a previous post gets amused with me sweating it out. Every single year, I wait until April to do this stuff - but then- I procrastinate until I get so close to the deadline that I have tax dreams. I also don't allow for a problem with the tax program, or for the possibility for a confusing (to me) change in tax law/info or as in this year - my quest for the missing receipts. Obviously, if this was January/February - no big deal.
Ha! I must've been delusional, back in one of my December posts when I actually thought I would get an early start on taxes and send them in early! I will get totally into it in short order, (always do) because I get that adrenaline rush as the pressure mounts. I do work well under pressure. I guess I like the challenge or am I a masochist? Seriously though, I CAN think of more interesting ways to challenge myself. However, from a psychological perspective - one would observe that obviously the gain for me to continue this practice of filing so close to the deadline is greater for me on some level than if I were to file earlier OR I would do it differently.
Once and only once - I filed for an extension when we were getting a refund!
I know the last cartoon is about being late with the NY state budget - but I liked "deadline-schmedline". Deadline - schmedline! Go ahead - say it. Out loud-it's fun. DEADLINE-SCHMEDLINE! :)
Younger son just came in to inform me that I am not getting anything done. Out of the mouths of babes - even if they are 18. He's right!
Well - at least I haven't resorted to this yet! :)
