This or That Tuesday


In the U.S., April 15 is the deadline for filing our income taxes. Even if the deadline is a different date in other countries, the fact still remains that we all have to pay taxes. And we can't survive without money!
In honor of this occasion, this week's theme is *Money*. A few questions about taxes, the rest about money in general. And a little bit of silliness, too!
1. File taxes as early as possible, or wait until the last possible minute?
Depends on thie year. This year, today.
2. File electronically, or mail paper forms?
electronic - since before the internet
3. Prepare your own taxes, or have someone do it for you?
always do it ourselves
4. Are you a saver or a spender?
a giver
5. Do you prefer to carry cash, or pay with plastic (credit/debit cards), or by check?
check or plastic, better records.
6. You're broke and desperately need a job, but the only places that are hiring are retail or fast food places. Which would you pick?
I'm not qualified for either. I have always managed to find other work.
7. Keeping track of your money: are you more meticulous or careless about it?
money is a tool, not an idol. keep enough track of it not to get in trouble, but not so much that it takes over my life.
8. What do you do if you find yourself with a lot of change weighing down your purse/pocket/wallet? Do you try to spend it to *get rid of it*, or do you put it in a jar or a piggy bank?
Give it away or put it in a jar.
9. Which form of fake money do you like better...Monopoly money or those chocolate coins covered with gold foil?
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You find a wallet containing $5,000 in cash, as well as several credit cards and the owner's drivers' license. Your rent is due tomorrow and you're short $200. Do you take the money (some or all of it) and mail back the wallet anonymously...or do you return the wallet with all contents intact?
Return it in person if possible. Tell the owner (if asked) about the rent situation, but expect nothing and don't volunteer the info if not asked. trust in God to see me through.
