The wages of sin are death, but by the time taxes are taken out, it’s just sort of a tired feeling.
— Paula Poundstone
There are very few things in life that I truly hate. Yes, there is much that I very much dislike, but hate is such a strong word that I like to save it for something really offensive. For example, I greatly dislike cold days, but I don’t hate them. I love to ice skate on outdoor rinks, so it would be foolish for me to hate the thing that makes that kind of skating possible. I also severely dislike getting pulled over for speeding, but I understand that I shouldn’t be driving so fast. I can’t really hate the highway patrol officer for doing his or her duty, can I?
However, there is one thing in life that I truly hate. In fact, hate isn’t even a strong enough word. Loath, despise, and abhor might be more appropriate. No matter what, though, I really, really, really hate doing my taxes.
