Bitter moonbats getting upset over what I perceive as an inconsistency.


Maybe they had to pay in to Big Brother this year.

I don't see it as an inconsistency.

The refund/tax owed is basically a banking function. They send money from their bank to your bank, or you send money from your bank to their bank.

The income/withholding/reporting is not a banking function.

What I find interesting is someone as Anal as you making interest free loans to the government every year.

I agree. I understand on some level that your reaction is based on your personal quirk.....or OCD?

Regardless.....not to invalidate your feelings....But, if that is the worst problem you have, you are blessed compared to many people.

I hope that you can put this into perspective....or if you can't that you can satisfy your angst by simply redoing your computation.....Regardless....I hope that you can get control of your situation enough to be able to apply your energy's somewhere more productive.

After reading this post I immediately thought of the kid in Better Off Dead who keeps saying "I want my two dollars."

Replaced with 6 cents.

So many responses; so few of which demonstrate reading comprehension.

We understand completely what you're saying, and what you're complaining about.

It's just a ridiculous thing to let annoy you.

Actually, the overreaction to an innocuous OP suggests that the forum is infested with snowflakes.


Not my problem.

I am perfectionistic and got your point BUT stating it is your "anal" nature bothers my perfectionism as that term is taken so far from its actual/original meaning it is disturbing.

Yes I am familiar w/Freud's anal retentive/anal expulsive theory; but stating one is "anal" just sounds ridiculous. Similar to those who state "I am OCD" when they aren't diagnosed the actual disorder (which would be correctly stated as HAVING OCD) or "I have anorexia" (medical definition, loss of appetite due to physical reasons/disease process) vs "I have anorexia nervosa" (psychological condition wherein one refuses food).

(I have a master's in a med sci field; laypersons slay me with their ignorance)

I once was anal about a few cents with millions in budget. But since my accounting background in college, it annoyedthe heck out of me. Things must be missing somewhere. My boss didn’t look too kindly. That jerk thought I was obsessed about cents. Needless to say I transferredwithin a year. That’s a jerk. So I understand.
