Today at Jack's doctor's appointment they measured him standing up instead of laying down. He is now 2 inches shorter than he was before. We shrunk him. I asked the doc to measure him laying down. He did not grow 1 millimeter. FAIL. Jack weighs 29 lbs. That's a FAIL for mommy's back. OUCH!
I'm not shy about not loving government agencies (yes I'm still a Dem. in spite of this), especially lazy employees of said agencies. Well, the trained monkey who was inputting our 2007 tax data clearly took a lunch break in the middle of the job because the first half of our reportings were entered in right and the second half was essentially forgotten. About 2 months ago we got a letter from the IRS telling us that we could choose to pay the 2,500 we owe them upfront or over time. Um, no. So we resubmitted all our information with a cover letter and highlighted the areas that were skipped by this data entry orangutan. We just got a letter today saying we owe them essentially DOUBLE the original amount. Apparently whoever entered in our corrections also did not complete elementary school and is unable to properly use a keyboard. What this second person has done is essentially entered all out re-sent information as NEW capital gains information and they're trying to stick us with double the bill. I'm not saying the IRS sucks or anything, I'm just saying the IRS SUX. I mean how hard is it to COPY numbers into a data field?!?!
