I really wouldn't care who is paying for ammo, as long as it is not me.

That's a fair point...I just can't find any private investors who want to support my shooting habit.

It teaches good financial responsibility....which I've gotten from my GF because my parents had NONE and didn't teach me ****.


That's why I said for people with simple returns (mostly younger people and renters who aren't self employed/contractors), it can be pretty easy to ****** it up when you start adding deductions, exemptions and itemizing.



I'm getting a whopping $600 back, just did my **** last night. I really wasn't even expecting that much. If anything, I'm disappointed that I didn't claim enough on my W-4. Oh how things will change next year when I get to add in tuition....
But then I have to look at that seemingly unimportant extra $50 a check, and be tempted to just spend it, because it's "only $50" and not worth saving. When Uncle Sam holds it, I forget it exists and I am not tempted by it. Then at the end of the year, it's like a surprise to see the money I have let him hold on to for me all year.

You can ask your bank to automatically pull a certain amount per month into a savings account.

SAMSUNG!!! Goddamn it!!! I'm now $500 further into my TV and it's still ******* broken! What the **** is it. Everything but the light engine is replaced, and nothing indicates that could be what it is, nor would it make sense. New Main board for $250, new power supply for $150, new ballast board for $75, still the damn thing turns on for 15 seconds, then clicks and resets. Samsung can suck a dick. At this point, that $500 saved could be half way to a decent replacement TV. A $1500 TV that only lasts 2 years then has to be discarded is unreasonable.

Yeah I know, but it's so easy to click "Transfer" and use it when times get tough, which is too often. I have savings, and it has less than $100 in it.

Ah, can't explain it. I'll post a pic one day you'll know what I mean.

This is why I wear sandals!
