In fact, we're getting a very tiny refund. Huzzah!
Next year, even better! Even if things get better! (We can hope, anyway.)

My favorite point is the one I shout at mr. delagar every time I see some tool with a no-taxation-without-representation bumpersticker on the back of his pickup, here in Pork Smith: "You've GOT representation, you shitting TOOL!" I yell at them. "WTF do you think your Congress IS?"
"All right, calm down," mr. delagar says.
"Ain't MY fucking fault their side lost."
"Will you just drive the car?"
"Ain't hear their asses whining when that idiot Bush was spending us into disaster two years ago, is it?"
"Why are you yelling at me?"
"Well, fine, I'll pull him the fuck over and yell at him, will you like that better?"
"Can we just get to the bookstore? Please?"
"Stupid ignorant backwards tool," I mutter.
"Rabbi Hillel says to love your neighbors," the kid says from the backseat.
"I would if they weren't such tools."
"Patriarchy-oppressed swearwords," she says. "You owe me three dollars."
