Our Economic Stimulus Payment was direct deposited last week. However there was about $300.00 missing from it. You know, the amount of one child. Today, the postman delivered a letter from the IRS which explained the payment. It confirmed that we have only one child. While I was on hold, I clicked at eTrish:
me: oh, I’m on hold with the IRS
Patricia: Yikes. You’ll never get that part of your life back…
Patricia: yes, last time I checked….
me: The IRS is telling me I don’t
Patricia: Do you have to threaten to send the kids to them?
me: I would… Summer camp at the IRS!!! Pack your abicus.
Patricia: do they have SSN’s? I’m sure they do, that’s a stupid question. Hand the phone to Elly
me: Currently, she’s busy making Saralyn cry.
Patricia: even better. They can both get in on it.
me: I’m Truely in hell – I’m on hold wiht the IRS and the baby is crying…
Patricia: I’m sure there’s worse versions of hell….afterall, your toilet could be overflowing.
me: Elly is diaperless.
Patricia: diaperless as in “pottytrained” or diaperless as in “running around butt-nekkid?”
me: Butt… Wait – Wait . THis is my lucky day ! The words “we are going to allow that” have just been said to me by an IRS agent
Patricia: [eyes rolling] Well, that’s mighty decent of them.
24 and a half minutes! THat’s all it took to have my second child. Let’s see if the check ever comes….
* my IRS agent’s name was #8901198. Really. How can I be more than a number to someone who introduced herself as #8901198? Ugg. It’s a black, black hole there.
