The shower crowd

image

This is the scene right outside my bathroom door as I take a shower. They are ever vigilant lest a door suddenly open up on the other side of the shower and I slip away without them knowing. In case there is any doubt, this has less to do with their loyalty to me than with the fact that they don’t get breakfast until after my shower and they want to be very sure I don’t try to get out of it.

Guess what I found out today?

I found out that if you don’t tell Social Security to take withholding out of your monthly check, they don’t. And then, come tax time, instead of the refund you have spent your entire life receiving and blowing on some silliness like groceries or penny slot machines, you have to pay. And pay a lot.

Task for today… call social security and change withholding.
