Fifi's Thoughts
4/17/2008 9:28:36 AM
I can't believe I paid that darn Uncle Sam money and I'm ready to start the STRUPPY MOVEMENT'
I'm a waitress and I sure as heck don't make a lot of money, yet because a lot of my hard earned pay was not 'withheld' for taxes. I actually owed the IRS a few bucks and had to GRRRRRRRRRRRR write a check and send it to the IRS this past Tuesday. (I'm sorry but probably like the rest of you but when I have to pay somebody or someone something like a bill or a check to the IRS, IT LEAVES AT THE LAST MINUTE).

I just don't understand why my accountant couldn't find more deductions. I mean I could have done it myself but I'm not too organized with my paperwork and I don't want to have 'you know who' looking at my records. So that's why I pay this accountant. I'm not in the best mood because after paying the accountants 'fee' and what I had to give Uncle Sam it took like a big chunk of my paycheck. Petros my boss has to be taking some of that money out of my paycheck for some reason. I'll have a talk with him. I should have has more money withheld for taxes and gotten money back, not be forced to pay taxes, not with my income. I may consider saying pooh pooh to my accountant next time and file my taxes myself thru the internet, if they check me, they check me. What can they take? I don't have a cent in my pocket.

You hard working tax payers agree that we need to have yearly performance reviews for all the politicians out there? Father told me that since the rest of us have these darn 'performance reviews' annually given to us by our bosses to determine if we can keep our jobs or maybe get that measly raise (and they are defintely getting measlier and measlier today. It's funny to see all these gas prices and other prices shooting up to the stars yet nobody wants to give you a raise), the same 'reviews' should be given to all the politicians, judges, and lawyers like prosecutors who serve us.

ANYWAYS some legit company WHICH WOULD MAKE GOOD USE OF HARD TAXPAYER MONEY would send like a survey to all the citizens in each district or constiuency or state or country or whatever. The survey would mention all the promises the politicians made in their election campaign and if the citizens would then give like a 'performance grade' on the survey to see if those 'promises' were carried out. Obviously if their performance grades were on the low side, well they'd be booted out in the next election. By the way I'm sorry but all our constiutions and laws and things should be changed so no politican (including President) should have NO MORE THAN 2 YEAR TERMS. I'm sure there are quite a few of you including moi who are kind of tired of seeing some 'well known' politicans in office far far longer than they should be. By the way THESE POLITICAL PERFORMANCE REVIEWS WOULD DETERMINE IF THESE PEOPLE SHOULD GET PAY RAISES OR PAY CUTS LIKE THE REST OF US. YOU PEOPLE SHOULD REALIZE THESE LAWMAKERS 'VOTE' BIG FAT PAY RAISES FOR THEMSELVES REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU AND I THINK. I mean I'm actually thinking of quitting acting and running for LA City Council. WHERE ELSE CAN I MAKE A HIGH SIX FIGURE INCOME FOR DOING ABSOULTELY NOTHING?

I just saw something in the local rag about some 'Eco yuppie'who is publishing a book in the fall called the Ecuppy Handbook' or something like that. An Ecuppy is like an 'Enviromentally Concsious Yuppie.' You people remember the 'Preppie Handbook' a few years back where some former prep school girl talked about all the nuances about what a preppy's life should be? Anyways this Ecuppy guy is saying that a good Ecuppy buys enviromentally friendly clothes (I have no idea what that means, I guess he probably wants people to 'humane' to the sheep so we don't buy wool or not use cotton made products because it takes a lot of pesticides to grow cotton), or buy recyled paper (obviously to save those lovely trees) or make 'compost posts' (I'm not gonna get into that). Now 'Mr Ecuppy' I just noticed you drove to the local grocery store just a few blocks IN YOUR BIG GAS GUZZLING AIR POLLUTING HUMMER INSTEAD OF USE YOUR OWN TWO FEET.

I'm just getting tired of all this 'uppy' or 'ippy' stuff we've seen the last 40 years or so. You know like the hippies and the yippies and the yuppies and the uppies and the buppies and the guppies and the puppies and the goldfish and all these other exotic animals.

I mean seriously most 'hippies' came from well to do families and lived in the trees for a few years and then they grew up and decided to join the 'Establishment' and became 'yuppies' and worked on Wall Street and lived in expensive homes and apartments and their kids become preppies and these yuppies later became Ecuppies and became enviromentally conscious and well......GIVE ME A BREAK.

I want to start a new movement called the Struppy movement. Struppy stands for Struggling young and not so young, urban and not so urban persons who despise all the other 'ippies'and 'uppies.' For some reason I think there are far far more people in this category than the other 'ippy' or 'uppy' categories.

A struppy is a person who puts in a hard days work every day and struggles to get by (Out here in LA that's any person or couple who makes less than say 130 grand a year). All the struppies, the struggling waitresses/waiters/office workers/teachers/cabdrivers/writers/grocery workers/
construction workers/nannies/maids/cashiers...... do not know or do not care what a 'fine wine' or enviromentally friendly shirt or blouse is. He or she will go to Target or Kmart to buy their rayon and cotton clothes, not expensive 'EcoGreen Clothiers.' Ergo he or she will go to 'Ralphs' to buy food, wine cooler, or beer, not 'Organic Foods Market.' I mean even health conscious struppies can get health conscious type foods at Ralphs. A struppy drives any four or six cylinder vehicle but not an 'eco car' like those little Priuses. In other worse struppies drive 'real cars.' Eco minded struppies walk to places like 'real men and women' instead of drive. A struppy tells a homeless looking 'hippy type' who is asking for a donation to save the 'green tree tarantula' when in reality the funds are really for some booz or pot to clean up, get a decent job, and you can donate as many funds as you want to that poor tarantula's cause. A struppy's kids goes to the local public schools who love kicking kids who go to fancy prep schools butts in football and 'other things.' A struppy who is fortunate to elevate himself or herself to a higher economic level is told by other struppies not to change. You know you still buy your food at Ralphs. VWs, Camrys, Saturns, and Dodge Pickups are OK but try not to get snooty and get a Lexus or BMW or ESPECIALLY A PRIUS. Finally a struppy should never be caught dead buying clothes at an 'Eco Clothes Store. I'm sure in time Target and Mervyns and KMart and Pennys will sell those kind of clothes if they don't already sell them now. Way way more than enough thoughts now. See all you struppies later.
