Friday 12/16/2011

Isn't it amazing?  You get more hours on a paycheck - a LOT more hours - you figure out how much more money it is before you get that paycheck and then..........you also figure the government is going to take a huge chunk of it.  Somewhat depressing to say the least.  I don't go to work so I can have all of my money automatically taken by the government, total BS.

Whatever.  It just pisses me off.  A bunch of damn politicians who could care less about the people.  They have THEIR agenda which usually doesn't come ANYWHERE in line with the demands that the people who voted them into office made and expect to be fulfilled when they do take the position.  I could care less if we voted the whole lot of them out of office, both sides, and start all over again.

My dad is saving the day for Caleb.  He wrote me back and said his college fund for Caleb has plenty in it, apparently, much more than he needs to get things rolling.  Which is good, because otherwise, I was going to have to come up with $400 by the 22cd of this month.  I am going to have a serious sit-down discussion with my son about this fiasco.  It's really inexcusable.  You don't wait until the last minute to sign up for college, you get it done as soon as they allow you to enroll.  You have no idea what kind of problems you might encounter and THAT is the reason you get it done as early as possible.

Really, I am kind of inundated right now with a lot of junk going on that I am not particularly caring for, at all. This is Christmas and I want to enjoy the season, not have all kinds of things going on that are totally avoidable.  I told a WalMart checkout lady yesterday Merry Christmas and she looked at me in shock.  Her whole demeanor changed and she said: "Thank you VERY much!".  Doesn't anyone say Merry Christmas anymore?  Happy Holidays apparently are the norm now, which I also consider bunk.  The Holiday that is being celebrated is CHRISTMAS, thank you very much.

Whatever.  I am almost out of time before I have to leave for work.

G'day.
