…it was a rough day, ever since I gave blood this morning at work. Let’s just say that the karma gods must not have thought donating blood was worthwhile, because they just kept striking me down. I made it through the work day, and then had to go get groceries and gas (my GOD why is everything so expensive?!!).
So I got home and said hello to my sweet little pup. We went outside, and we got the mail. I said to him (yes, I talk to him), “Hey, Ben, I bet there’s a check in here…” as I opened the mailbox door. Sure enough, I pulled out a small envelope from On-Demand Publishing LLC. I didn’t even do a silent cheer… I woohoo’d in the middle of my apartment’s parking lot. Sanity be damned!
Then, as I was walking back, I thought to myself, “Hey, why’d they send a live check? They do direct deposit…” And then I looked closer at the envelope.
It looked JUST LIKE the other 1099-MISC forms I’ve been getting. Damn it. Not only is it not a check, it’s, like, the opposite of a check.
Today’s moral, kids? Don’t donate blood*
*I’m just kidding. You SHOULD donate blood.
