Replacing Tires would be Overwhelming:
Now for today..
Overwhelmed, one synonym is ‘flabbergasted’. I didn’t know that was a real word. But now that I am the same age as old people I am learning how those old people get flabbergasted at the technical things of life. Stumbling thru things like setting up auto-payment of your utilities and phone and finally getting it all set up you relax and forget it. BUT let a monkey wrench get thrown in, and there is that overwhelmed feeling again.
Shirley my older sister was being ‘overwhelmed’ with bills. The younger brother, me, set it all up and she had just groceries, clothes, gas and eating out to worry about. BUT then she passed away. Some of the things were simple to stop BUT NOT ALL. AT&T was the worst. (I have heard good things about AT/T but not for us). AS you know there are no local offices; seldom even real people.
NOW, I am now the
old person. Tax time is coming up and YES I am flabbergasted. The only time I have used anyone to
do my taxes was in the last few years in business when, at my big brothers
advice, I hired a CPA. Marvin was a great guy but after his death I found he
lied, I mean there were deductions on my forms that were not true. I
learned that from the CPA that took over Marvin’s accounts. Of course OUR tax
went up. LOL
I was quiet until 7 years passed, dreading the thought of an audit. It did not happen.
Okay now, this shouldn’t be too hard, just follow the instructions and file the forms. But I still dread it.
Maybe I’ll call Lisa, she is working for a CPA now in her new job. What am I saying? I cannot call anyone. I can’t talk on the phone. LOL
Maybe I’ll wing it. Can you blog from jail? Just wondering……..
