Besides, the reason I was counting upon to provide my annual supply of cause for griping failed me this year. We always owe money to the feds and to the state of Iowa, and we are always owed a refund from the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin likes to hold onto the money till the eagle screams. Like, till June. That's when we usually get our Wisconsin refund.
Not this year. Today I mailed off our checks to the US Treasury and to the State of Iowa - and when I picked up our mail, our Wisconsin refund check was in it. Now I think that is totally reasonable. A refund that arrives on the same day that our payments are due. This is so fair it really disappoints me because I will have to find something else to whine about now.
