    I'll bet you can't wait to have your hard earned bucks subsidizing hammers and kids with 3 teeth.
     
  9. I'm sure it makes you real happy to know that you are proportionatly paying about 20 times the amount of taxes, than the elite 0.5 % are!!!!

    Congrats Mike. Good to hear you made it through the interviews, and got the job.

    Now you can get your supporting membership back, and go back to using that B&B avatar.

    The only problem with the avatar is that you cant read what it says.

    Congrats. I just started my new job at MCI, and get my first paycheck today. Nearly $250 in taxes. But I still have plenty of piss off money.

    No, with the amount of money that Mike is making this year he'll probably pay zero taxes. Actually he's probably included in his parents' taxes. If he were living on his own though working at subway he'd pay zero most likely, therfore he'd get a big refund at the end of the year.

    A common misconception. As a member of the "elite 0.5%" I can tell you that the notion that "we" do not pay taxes is entirely untrue. My parents pay well over 50% of their income to taxes.

    Hey, find out why the people at Subway roll their eyes every time I ask for mustard AND mayonaise AND ranch sauce.

    You'd think I was ordering corned beef with mayo and swiss at a kosher deli or something. What's the deal? I can have two sauces but not the third?
