Why bother?

Well, that was hardly worth the effort it took to get the stupid thing in the mail! Our stimulus rebate from Uncle Sam arrived today, in an amount less than half of what their letter (and our calculation) said it would be. Without getting into the wisdom of the whole idea to begin with, what a waste of government man hours, paperwork, postage... and my tax dollars.

Sure glad we weren't depending on it for anything... it's not even enough to stimulate the gas tank!

Well, at least you got something! I went to site last week to see when I might be getting MINE and they said I WASN'T...didn't earn enough. What a waste to inform me a few months back to expect it. That's our government doing what they do best...waste tax dollars!!!

Sorry that happened to you. I have mine spent several times over :) It's hard to pay for things that way. :) :)

take care,
