Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Your Writer And The W-2 Form Caper

Posted 02-17-2023 at 08:25 PM by case44

This did not have to be an agonizing wait.

And never mind that the town in which I live tends to have questionable mail service. Ol' Case waited what seemed like an eternity..............for his..........

......W-2 form.

Originally, it was supposed to arrive in January. For some reason, it didn't. I wasn't about to ask the postmaster any questions, but in all my years on God's Earth, I have never had an issue with my W-2 form not arriving in my mailbox. So, whenever it got to around the second week of February, I started to get worried. That W-2 form is lost in the mail, but how? It's probably floating around and possibly falling into some questionable hands. Or, perhaps, maybe my employer forgot to send it (I doubt that was really the case for Case).

Last weekend, it became time to use the old noodle. My workplace website had a phone number that I could call in case my form didn't arrive. Guess what? I dialed it. After some strange prompts that might confuse a few folks, I put in a new order for a W-2 to be sent. Finally, we get to today. Lo, and behold, the mail carrier finally brought in my W-2 form to my box and not someone else's so that your writer can get his taxes done and not go to jail. Talk about serious peace of mind.

While one wait becomes over, another is about to be. And I'll get to that in another writing to come.

    As far as my situation has gone, everything now will be just fine that an extension's not necessary. Both my mom and I can get things done in a reasonable time frame.
