Two major pet peeves for me

One: The asswipe companies who pay people to say "I owed 66 thousand dollars in taxes and blah, blah, blah helped me so that I only had to pay $500." YOU OWED THE FUCKING TAXES!!!! PAY YOUR TAXES JUST LIKE I DO!!!!!

Two: Asswipes driving in downpours with NO LIGHTS ON!!! Especially when they are driving GREY vehicles!!!! TURN YOUR FUCKING LIGHTS ON...NOT ONLY IS IT THE LAW, it's just smart.

ok, rant off.

Reported today in my city, with a population of 186,542, that around 35% will not get vaccinated.

As in refusing to get vaccinated. The news had a couple of people stating why and one of them made me particularly mad. The reason for not getting vaccinated? "I will put my faith in God".

I wanted so much to be able to ask this person a couple of questions. But the first one that came to mind was, if you were in a wreck and had a big gash in your side and were bleeding to death, would you "put your faith in God" to keep you from dying, or would you allow medical personnel to treat you?

I'm sure there are more reasonable and measured questions that should be asked of these people, but that was my first thought.

Just picked up my taxes from my accountant

I run a small business. A very small business that keeps my wife and I above water. I am paying 2K more this year than I did the last two years, while my gross income was less than those two years.

I don't mind paying the taxes. I really don't. What made me really, really mad was what my accountant of 20 years said to my wife, who picked them up for us today. Paraphrasing, "Yeah, they were higher this year, but brace yourself for next year after Biden has "his way" with the tax code. It's gonna make this year look like a picnic."

To be honest, it's a good thing it wasn't me picking up those documents. I would have probably ruined a friendship of 20 years. I was furious after my wife relayed this to me. I think my exact statement was, "it makes me so upset when otherwise smart people are so FUCKING STUPID!!"

rant off.
