Why, oh why, do you, Internal Revenue Service, make false promises? You told me my refund would be here on February 1st. On January 31st, I read an article that people who filed prior to January 26th will have their refunds delayed a week.

So now, I have to wait until the 7th of February. I called the IRS and told them that I was considering this to be a "payday loan", and I was going to charge them the same 500% interest the local lenders charge. After all, if they can do it, why shouldn't I make a couple thousand extra?

Unfortunatly, all I was given was the boilerplate response of "our anti-fraud mechanism malfunctioned, these things happen." What, exactly, were you doing the OTHER 9 months of the year?!?! Shouldn't you have tested this?

Normally, I wouldn't get all bent out of shape about this, but it's the second year in a row they've delayed my return. It's getting to the point where I'd rather just keep the money and skip the big return, I just don't want to end up paying in. Or maybe I should just become Amish. That'd work.
