    Just noticed some updates were made to the debt clock... there's now a tariff tax counter, and a comparison of revenue/deficit to GDP. One thing that hasn't changed, though, are the large numbers. usdebtclock.org

    Employee retention meeting with HR on Monday. I'm gonna be asked why I'm still there.

    Um... because I love you and my coworkers are decent human beings?

    The first company I worked for was starting to have trouble attracting new grads, so they made the mistake of asking us 7 most recent hires why we worked there. Every single one of us said, "because it was our only job offer." Yikes.
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

    That’s how I got my first job.

    I applied to my current employer about 30 times. Never even got a callback. Dickwads.

    Not really sure what that means. But I'm sure there are some here that wouldn't doubt that.

    The states are even worse.

    Also, my god some states' partial year residency instructions are bizarre and poorly written.

    Iowa says they're slowing down refunds to prevent fraud. It had absolutely nothing to do with their cash flow, or lack thereof. Really. And they also have a bridge to sell you if you believe them.

    How many people (or what percentage of returns) actually were struck by those 90+% rates in some of those brackets?

    Had that meeting. One thing that keeps me there is the non-discrimination policy.
