Money Well Spent
Back in 2001, I had a brief career in Hi-Tech. I worked for THAT company.
You know..THAT company’s who’s stock skyrocketed, then crashed….
THAT company that laid off thousands of people. (I was one of them).
THAT company that’s a heart-beat away from bankruptcy today.
Anyway, for the brief 8 months I worked there, I contributed to their pension fund.
It wasn’t much at the time. But it’s even less today.
Though I still get income statements. Including this one from 2008.
(*Insert sarcastic clapping here*)
Clap. Clap. Clap.
Bravo, Canada Revenue Agency.
Good job, making sure you keep track of that ONE PENNY I earned.
You cheesy weasel-bastards.
You know, any dumb-ass first-year programmer could have written some code, to say “If amount = $0.01, then ignore printing out costly tax receipt”.
But I guess that’s beyond the Tax Man’s comprehension.
I guess they prefer to spend the $10.00 in man-hours that it probably cost to process this information and send it to me.
But that’s okay.
I’m going to send in this receipt in my (late) tax return, out of principle.
Out of spite.
So that they can spend another $10.00 processing it all over again.
