2 Things that Pissed Me Off Today

I try to stay mostly positive here on the blog, because I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer or a Frances Frowner (I made that one up) but here are two things that just pissed me off today, guys.

1. TAXES

So, I use TurboTax online to file my returns, because it’s easy, and because I’m not super proficient in accounting. I realize there is a free option with TurboTax online, but you have to enter in everything yourself and it doesn’t save your information for future tax returns, so, yeah, it seems worth it to pay for the ease of filing and perk of information saving. I don’t mind paying a reasonable amount for my taxes to be prepared. Let me just make that clear. (Also, please note I said reasonable.)

So, after entering in all my information and watching my state and federal numbers for my return drop (apparently I’m in a super awesome tax bracket?? MY GOD…) I decided to pay to file and be done with it.

Then I saw this ————>taxes1

Basically, it says that to use my federal return to pay TurboTax the $71.98 (plus taxes) to file my returns, I have to pay an additional $34.99.

I mean…

I can’t even….

I just…

Why…

The federal government already takes a lot of my money, TurboTax. Why am I going to give you $100 more of my dollars?

Answer: I’m not. I will file for free and spend all my time redoing all the forms because just no, guys. Just no.

So, I decided to browse the internet to calm myself down and then I saw the second thing that pissed me off.

2. PEOPLE

More specifically, this: Thousands of People are Petitioning Against Nick Offerman

Apparently, Nick Offerman (you may know him best as Ron F***ing Swanson) offended people in his NASCAR SuperBowl ad when he says this:

“When our idea of danger is eating gluten, there’s trouble afoot.”

So an online petition was started, and some gluten-allergy folk are all up in arms about the slight toward gluten-intolerance.

I doubt anyone would care to read a rant from me concerning political correctness, so, I will just leave the ad here so you can judge if it’s offensive.

Personally, I was more offended by the NationWide ad with the kid who says he’s dead in it… but I haven’t found any petitions about that yet. Nope. Just Googled it. Nothing.

Anyway, there you have it. Two things that royally pissed me off today.

On a positive note, Abby and I are doing a review of the FitBit Charge HR on Friday, so be on the look-out for that!

Also, here’s a picture of Rafferty saying hello, because this post shouldn’t be ALL negative.

  1. Gotta watch out for those free tax sites. Now that I run a consulting business and got married in 2013, I have someone do mine. There is always a gimmick. I like your pup at the end of your post 🙂 and I’ll look forward to your fitbit review!

      • Sctax.org I did my friend’s & my taxes already. it is totally free. I used the H&R Block. It has way less questions than Turbo Tax. My parents buy it every year and I did their taxes yesterday. Heck I will do your taxes if u want Kaye. I did 8 people’s taxes last year.

    • I didn’t either! To be fair, I don’t have a gluten-intolerance so I guess I don’t really have a right to speak on it.. but I was just like… really??? THAT is offensive? I also think Nick Offerman is hilarious and agree, I thought it was one of the best. The rest were so depressing!

      • For certain things I think it is best to just laugh it off, but for the other ones I agree, I cried at the nationwide commercial. It was way too serious for the Superbowl!
