Isn't paperwork fun?
Who doesn't love tax time?
And math, isn't math great??
I have finally completed the adding, subtracting and paperwork shuffling of 2011. Now I can spend my time usefully; staring off into space and looking up obscure information on the internet, instead doing the government's bidding.
Although, I do love the IRS, I mean those people are great, completely underrated and overworked. All that time they spend with those helpful flow charts and easy to understand directions. And they have the shiniest hair and are so fun to be around.
No need for an audit here, move along, Poindexter.
Here are some 2011 Tumbleweed facts from the adding and subtracting archives:
311 days on the road. Do you have any idea how many public bathrooms that is? Eleventy billion.
$60,000.00 worth of diesel, over 17,000 gallons. One barrel of crude oil makes about 10 gallons of diesel, the rest goes to gas, jet fuel, and crayons. That's 1700 barrels of crude oil. We should just move to Saudi Arabia now.
114,000 miles driven, almost half the distance from the Earth to the moon.
We only got paid for 107,000 of those miles. The other 7,000 miles are on us and accounts for bad directions and getting lost, personal use, and the fuzzy math that the trucking industry sets for paid mileage.
$600.00 spent on showers and laundry, in public, cootie filled truck stops. (Insert sad violin music here)
All I have to do now is print this out and send it to the IRS. I know they will appreciate getting our tax information in a creative way, after weeks and weeks of looking at those boring tax forms with all those little lines and big words. We'll no doubt get a prize or something along with a big, fat refund.
We're probably going to need it when we get to Saudi Arabia.
