Your request for a refund of 2011 blah blah, which was paid [back in fucking January] in the amount of 25$ was denied since blah blah blah. If you disagree with the result you may file a claim for refund with the Controller’s Office. You have blah blah. blah blah city controller, eat a bag of dicks, tax refund claims forms available at the claims division some address in the middle of nowhere.
So it turns out that it would take me at least an hour and probably closer to two to go down to the treasurers office and successfully dispute this bullshit decision. But I’m not going to because it is not worth my time. Nor will I allow the raw satisfaction of besting the insidious clerks at the treasurers office to guide my day. The emotional payoff from investing 2 hours in 25$ financial joust is simply not worth the trouble and so instead, I will seethe. If I were a petty man (which I most certainly am not) I would just smash a window and call it even.
tl;dr It simply rustles my jimmies that the city can steal 25$ from me and I don’t have the time or energy to fight for J U S T I C E. So instead I will write an angry blog post. THERE.
