Don’t feel too bad, I think far too many people know it. I heard Rush talking about it to Snerdley the other day so I checked it out.

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


Not only have we been penned in the house, other than to do her business in the yard... so has the dog.

Took her for couple mile walk and EVERY tree, hydrant, shrub that was leash length available, she had to stop and sniff. Not a quick one, she was really checking it out.

Many times she'd squat and squirt even though it was just a few drops..

Whole time I'm wondering, are they communicating? If so wonder what they're saying to each other.

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


Have you ever had a dyslexic employee? But they don't tell you, and then you find out after they totally fail to do something that you had written out?



I'm not dyslexic, but I feel like I am stuck with some sort of mental disability when it comes to accounting and tax time. I just don't understand it. Even after my well paid accountant explains it to me for the 12 hundredth time.

When you call up the IRS and they pass you around like a hot potato because no one wants to give you an answer is when you know you will never get it correct.

That's why you pay your accountant...

Their name goes on the return as well, so come audit time...

Accountants don't get to claim privilege either. My accountant told me he would be the IRS's star witness in any trial. Lol

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


I doubt there's any audits in my future, as I seem to have to pay in way more than I planned for the 4th frickin year in a row.


Seems like they reward you when you lose money, but if you have anything left over, they decide it's theirs.

Look here, you know you got my rentals under coverage. Because we tight like that. Like kin. My boy

Anyway. Say one of my renters, fine people, fine people, got some personal issues, say took a pot shot at cops and they leveled the place. With like a tank. Yall got my six on that right?"

"Uh.... man. That's sudden. Uuugggh... why did they shoot at police? "

"Now you starting to give me heart burn colby. How in the **** should I know why? Do I do meth?"

"Your renters do meth??"

"Let's stick to the subject, colby. Damnit. If that happened you cover? You better cover. You expensive MF. How'd you feel if Laurie was left exposed? I'd hate that for amber."

"Now we are talking life insurance?"

"Good question colby. Yall got my LI. You cover this??"

" I'm going to have to give you a ring back"

"Well take you **** ing time colby. I'm just holding my breath wondering if I'm covered under these new circumstances. "

Just got me thinking. There's accountants out there that are also tax attorney's. Maybe it would be wise to have them as an accountant. Lol
