Oh shit

My brother and his wife are having the worst money problems. The IRS kept their tax refund to pay off his student loans and they needed the money to fix his car and purchase another vehicle as her car is about to die. I feel so bad for them. He went through school to be able to get a better job and his boss is a shit head. The man promised him that he would be up to twenty dollars and hour by now. One pay raise was supposed to go through last summer, and another one this past January. He hasn’t gotten either one. My brother is the only employee the man has and works his ass off for him.

I hope my tax return comes in soon, because I am going to give them some money to help out. It isn’t much but they really need it more than I do, so I will do what is needed. I know he will try to refuse, but I have no intention of taking no for an answer. I am just going to put the money in an envelope with a letter and then go visit them just to say hi. I will leave the letter in their house right as I leave so he can’t refuse it. I hope he doesn’t act stubborn.

Fuck the IRS

So the IRS offset my damned tax return for my student loans. I am so fucking pissed right now. I needed that money for another car, because mine blew a head gasket. Now I am going to have to go to a buy here pay here lot to get a car and have stupid payments each damned week. I really cannot afford the added expense of another bill to pay. This so totally sucks ass. I realize that I need to pay the student loans back, but how can I do that when I barely make enough to live one, let alone pay a huge monthly payment to them.

Oh well, I guess a new car is ok so long as I can find something I actually like. There are a few car lots near my house with nice vehicles, but I am sure they are going to be too expensive. That means I am going to have to travel into the city and find a lemon lot, or go to Kentucky and see what my friend has on his lot. Sometimes he is good and has a deal, but most of the time he is as bad as most of the other lots. I think it mostly depends on his mood.
