For the first time, I'm pissed that I don't deal with my mail on a timely basis. Usually, I just dump all my mail into a pile and then when the pile falls over, I open the mail. Bills? Pay those online. Occasionally this practice gets me in a small amount of trouble with missing events and whatnot. Mostly I don't care.
But in the pile I worked through today was a jury summons. Saying I needed to show up this morning.
So no only can I go to jail now, I miss out on being on a jury.
I tried to call in. Missed their office hours so I couldn't tell them I missed the notice.
Checked the web site. No F.A.Q. on
what to do if you don't realize you are supposed to show up.
I'll call tomorrow.
- A letter from the IRS saying they have a half million dollar of unreported income for 2004 and that I need to file a response by July 12th. Oops. Better take care of this. Nope, I didn't have a half million of unreported income. I screwed up how I filed in both 2003 and 2004. When I fixed 2003, the IRS ended up owing me $18. They'll owe me for 2004 as well, but I guess I should take care of that quickly.
- A wedding announcement for my cousing. I knew the wedding wasn't until August so I wasn't worrying about that.
- My COBRA information. $340/month to continue the same coverage I had before. Good thing I paid my car off in May. I'll probably use COBRA for a few months in case I decide to take a job. If not, I'll start looking for cheaper major medical coverage in August or September.
There's still more in the pile.
And my power just went off for 3 seconds. Thank god for U.P.S.
