IRS, Hurt Ankle, Class Maintenance and No Response Yet

Monday, April 08, 2013

The IRS is really being a pill now. They are withholding my daughters refund and they took off 499 dollars of mine I could have used. They do not believe that my daughter does not have a job so they have been looking into that for 8 weeks or more. I hurt my ankle on Saturday running I think I stopped too fast and hurt it when i landed. My class is being a real pill too. First there was 2 nights in a row i had trouble getting into the library cause it was busy then yesterday the Loud Cloud for class was down for maintenance and off. Just when i was ready to turn it in it was shut down and i had to wait until 12 this morning to turn in my essay; but I could not copy and paste it into the peer forum cause they shut it down again! I was like come on how long does it take for you to fix something. One of the technicians i talked to on the phone earlier last night said the professors know about the problem so they will not mark me as late. This morning it is still down. I still did not hear back yet from that person at Experience Works yet. last time I called another woman answered and told me she had been out of town and very busy and that she would tell her. Well you think she would be courteous enough to call me back. I hate playing phone tag with people!

    Sorry to hear you're having so many frustrating things happening. I can't believe the IRS is being so jerky, even though I should know to expect that. I hope things work out better for you immediately!

    Sorry, everything seems to be going wrong. Classes, IRS and injury. Well that makes 3 things so you are finished with the icky stuff I hope. Hope things go better for you soon!
    Why does it seem gov. goes after the little guy, aren't there bigger fish to fry with people who really commit large corporate tax fraud? Honestly, what a waste of tax payers' money hounding the innocent.

    Dear me! It sounds like you have a heavy, dark cloud hanging over your head. I'm sorry you hurt your ankle, and hope it heals soon. I used to work for the IRS, but I shudder every time I think of them.....they have such power that it's scary. And the example of Jenny not having a job and IRS taking their sweet time checking it out just proves it. emoticon

    It's awful that you keep running into problems regarding school. At least you won't be marked as late with that assignment, but what aggravation, Laura. I feel for you.

    It sounds like the Lord is allowing you to be tested and tried, and that's not pleasant. But you know that James 1:2-4 gives comfort from the Lord. "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." Trials, by their nature, are not pleasant, but God will use them to develop you into Christ-likeness, so hang in there. Turn to the Lord, and have faith He wants only what is best for you. Naturally, I'm praying for you and Jenny.
