Taxes!

Why do I do it? Every year I spend uncountable hours detailing (which I have to do anyway) and tallying (here's the uncountable) my mileage for work. I am reimbursed, but in a different way that can allow me to have tax-deductible expenses, depending. This year I knew it was looking good. I came up with about 700 worth of stuff and commenced to form-filling-out. I get all done, and then am surprised to find that there is an income test as to whether you can deduct this stuff. Which I didn't pass. Bastards!

Also, I found this sentence in the 1040 Instruction book, and found it amusing. "Certain whaling captains may be able to deduct expenses paid in 2005 for Native Alaskan subsistence bowhead whale hunting activities. See Pub 526 for details."
