Coffee and taxes


3-11215100_10153876965391622_7782788587571473867_nI’m so glad you came; I have an important question to ask you. Your advice is needed. But first, can I get you a coffee? A latte? Have a seat and I’ll get the coffee.

So, I was wondering; do you pay your taxes with joy? How do you do that? What is the secret?

I tried to pay my taxes with joy last year.

I went to the tax-office (the Devil’s Den) with a well-rehearsed stand-up act. We are talking hillarious stuff here. Knee-slappingly funny. ROFLMAO-quality material. Epic.

Man, talk about tough crowd! They threw me out and told me to come back with money! B@$t@rd$!

  1. hahahaha! No, I’m afraid I’ve never paid taxes with anything resembling joy. But at least I just have to mumble about how much I submit electronically instead of giving it to an actual tax collector.

  2. It is hard to see the money go. Perhaps they do not like taking the money and there by find it hard to be joyful. I would imagine being a tax collector is a very hard job because one would know who had the money to spare and who did not. I also imagine they do not make much money themselves and therefor cannot help those who need it. This position would break my heart, even if someone did show up and try to be happy I would know ‘their’ flip side of the coin. But good of you to try and be cheerful.

    • Thank you for your comment. My post is a joke, playing on the saying that you shall pay taxes with joy – because it is for the good of the whole country. And this does hold true for scandinavia, with free healthcare, education, roads etc

      • I kinda thought that it was. But it did make me think about the poor tax collector. It would be fun to see a book written about a ‘mean’ tax collector and a joker who tried to make his life better. 🙂 It was a great post.
