Ignorance Is Bliss

The paper organizer lady was here for three hours today and helped me get rid of tons and tons of stuff. So much that shredder blew. I'm not exaggerating. As I was shredding paperwork from my long ago freelance years, my poor piece of office equipment just gave up and gave out.

While destroying these obsolete records I found that I have been making virtually the exact same amount for the last ten years. Taking inflation into account, I'm making approximately 20% less today. This makes me sad.

My finances were exactly the same before I figured this out. I was just happier.

Reminds me of that old vaudeville routine:

"Doctor, my arm hurts when I do this."
"Then don't do that."

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
