Gross Earning Breakdown

‘Tis the tax season and my notorious analytical habit couldn’t sleep.  Here I present to you my 2008 gross earnings breakdown:

Apparently, in this past calendar year I worked nights and days:

  • Through April 12th (just in time!) to pay my taxes – to feed the poor, the old, the super rich, and the countries we destroy
  • Then through end of June to save up for the far distant future (if I hadn’t done this, I would’ve been working through May just to feed more poor and the super rich)
  • Then the entire summer through September 9th so I wouldn’t be homeless
  • Another week so I could pay for the company-subsidized healthcare and shitty Subway rides
  • Just as the weather started to get cold, I could finally start to think about feeding and clothing myself, buy a PS3 or otherwise have a life

What a depressing view of the reality?!  Technically I haven’t worked enough this year to cover my 2009 income taxes yet!  Let’s not even mention the $$$ that went into and disappeared right from my 401(k).

    At least you aren’t negative! After spending some time doing my own personal calculations, I’ve been overspending about $500 per month the whole year. No wonder I get poorer…
