How I felt last Friday:

As soon as I got my pay stub from work, I immediately thought of this clip from Friends...particularly the line, "Who is FICA? And why is he getting all my money??" I'm still happy to actually have money, but in my first paycheck $700 was taken out in taxes, social security, etc.!! I knew a lot would get taken out, but by a lot I thought it would be like $300 or so. Welcome to the real world, huh?

Lol... I'm reminded by one of the guys last week on Last Comic Standing.

He said "This is the same government who says, 'We're going to take a little bit out of your paycheck to save for your retirement, but it might not be there when you retire. You know who else does that??? A pimp."
