My first payday!!

I got my first payday today!!! I have enough right now to go pay cash for the Gary Fisher Marlin. But I am going to wait, I have a few Civil Air Patrol things I gotta take care of first and I have to tithe. They took almost 100 dollars tax out of my paycheck, that really sucks. I had gone and exempted myself from fed tax, but I guess it didn't work. Oh-well.

Welcome to the work world of, "where did all that pay go?"

Oh well, there's that new bike to look forward to!

Congratulations on that first paycheck... may it be followed (regularly) by many more.

Remember, though, that while money does not buy happiness, it does buy the accessory action playset that no happiness can be complete without...

Consider also those taxes to be the dues you must pay as a member of a fabulous club called America.

(Frankly, I am thrilled at the thought of paying USA taxes. Back home, I was taxed at 59%, and then some.)

Now, run, don't walk, to the nearest bike shop, and trade that dirty money for a shiny bike.
