First, some background. I am a substitute teacher, aka “mercenary.” I make $75 a day (half of that for half days). I make this much because I have an actual, valid teaching license. Compound this with the fact that I have yet to work a full five-day week and one realizes that I be po’.
I fill out my state and federal taxes today. I give the forms to my dad to check over. He punches the numbers and they come up to my disadvantage. My federal forms are okay; I’m not too happy with the way they worked out, but at least I don’t owe them anything. The state forms however…
I made less than $2000 last year. The state took out $18. I owe them $93.
:mad: What. :mad: The. :mad: Fuck. :mad: Is. :mad:This.:mad:
Is THIS how we treat our residents, State of North Carolina? By taxing the people who CAN’T EFFING AFFORD IT? I hope you shitfuckers in Raleigh enjoy your ill-gotten gains as you delay and argue and fart around instead of getting anything done. I didn’t vote for any of you assmunches. I made a distinct point of voting AGAINST each and every one of you in my district because you fucked with the teacher’s salaries a couple of years ago.*
Is THIS how we treat hopeful teachers who want to get permanent teaching jobs here, State of North Carolina? You are heading for SOL country with teachers, what with the retiring and the burning out and the crappy treatment and the people leaving for better jobs and the hey-hey-hey. Be nice to me, people, I can corrupt your children. And I will. Yes I will.**
Roast in hell, State of North Carolina. Eat shit and die. I hate you and all you stand for. Tell me, did you immediately sell your souls to Satan, or did you negotiate and bargain with him first? The last panel of this comic almost got included with my tax forms. I nearly filled out the check “Bloodsucking Soulless Leeches” except you wouldn’t cash it. I almost filled out a lot of things on that check, except they would have set the paper on fire.
Be nice to me, State of North Carolina. You need me more than I need you. I know about the reciprocal teaching agreement, and I have friends in those states who are willing to help me get settled there. I’d tell you to get your asses in gear and actually DO SOMETHING instead of bitching about who’s in charge, but then I remember that the General Assembly is evenly divided between Asses and Pachyfucks and you’ll use that as an excuse to fart around during this session. I want you all very, very dead.
*A couple of years ago the General Assembly was too busy bitching about minutiae in the budget to give the teachers their bonus checks (for exemplary schools, signing bonuses, etc.) until fuckin’ NOVEMBER. Wanna talk about bitter? Yeah.
** To those of you who live in North Kakalakee: Thank you for paying my pittance. In gratitude, I won’t corrupt your children, just the spawn of the numbnuts in Raleigh.
