What’s A Few Years Hard Labor Anyway

, | Minneapolis, MN, USA |

(Note: I work in the call center of a major insurance company.)

Customer: “I just received this form…what does it mean?”

Me: “That is letting you know how much interest income you received last year that we reported to the IRS.”

Customer: “But, I don’t want the IRS to know!”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we’re legally obligated to report that information to the IRS.”

Customer: “Do you do everything the government tells you to?!”

Me: “Umm…yes?”
