While I'm in the break room trying to rest my eyes from the computer screen I overhear a conversation. It's Slim Shady and some new girls talking about income tax refunds.
It's November 4th, why are we mentally spending our refunds all ready and for non necessary stuff at that? The only one out the group making sense was a coworker that will be dropping twins next year, bless her heart. Any money she get will go to get them situated, as it should IMO.
Why are they planning to go to *insert tax service* in the near future to get the refund process started? I thought preparation places started that "give us your last paycheck and walk away with cash" junk in December!
Why haven't they realized that those services rip you off?
Why haven't they realized that a huge refund is NOT a good thing! Change your tax docs around, put your money in a interest bearing account and make the ish multiply throughout the year! Or gee I don't know, spend that "extra money" during the year and not wait till the beginning of the year to be close to or in the black! Just a thought.
I just kept my mouth shut.
We love the "black lottery" don't we?
Oh since the rest of yall have seen what I'm looking like these days, I guess I can share this now...
0:27 far left and 1:00 right after they show the money and tickets on the table. Don't blink.
