This Can't Be Good For Business
That's more awkward that Uma-Oprah. (Although personally I thought that was an awesome moment).
I heard on Paul Harvey's radio news show today that the great tax business, H&R Block, "misunderestimated" their own taxes by $32 million. Come on. Give 'em a break. It's not like they know what they're doing, right?
Tax preparers make $32 million tax mistakes on their own taxes, right? Like...like...like Supreme Court justices get thrown in jail sometimes, right? Like...like...hunters shoot other hunters, right? Like...ambulance drivers stop at Hardee's before completing the emergency run, right? Like fireman sometimes burn down buildings accidently, right?
How does the defense go on this one?
"Sorry, your honor, we hope you can overlook (wink wink) this one." No.
"Sorry, your honor, we weren't as good as we thought we were. I hope you can understand, we're in over our heads." No.
"Look, your honor, we're sorry, but we really have no idea what we're doing. Just please don't tell anyone about this, okay?" No.
"This stinkin' tax code is so ridiculous, judge baby, we couldn't figure it out. And we're "supposed" to know what we're doing." THAT'S IT!
