I just took a new job about 3 weeks ago, well I was given a relocation/bonus and just recieved it today. The bonus was 10k. When I first saw the pay stub I was in a very good mood...until I saw that Uncle Sam didn't just have his hand in it...he had his both his f-in arms in it and raking money out of it. 40%... I mean come on seriously? They took 4,000 dollars out of it. And where the hell does this money go? My guess is to some 645.8 lb man sitting on his *** and can't work because he has sat on his *** too long to begin with? Something seems very wrong here, its more like I got a 6k bonus and Sam got a 4k bonus to pay their own payroll so they can take more money later. I mean I.M.O.F.P.O.D.O.(in my own f-in pissed off damn opinion), this is essentially the same thing as me renting an apartment right...and a friend comes over and gives me 10 grand for me helping him out, and the land lord comes over and grabs 4k of it since he keeps the structure and all of the apartments in decent shape. But I already pay him every freakin time I get paid...does that sound right? Sorry guys if I ticked anyone off, just wanted to vent. Maybe someone with a decency in the government will read this one day and a light bulb flickers on....doubt it though, I think that a oxymoron or something aint it? decency and government in the same sentence.
