Dear CRA…

Dear CRA,

Why? Why must you make everything so gosh darn difficult? I thought I was finished with you in April, but you still keep calling me. You keep asking me for things I have ALREADY GIVEN YOU!!! Why must you be such a jerkwad about everything? I called the right numbers, talked to the right people and yet we still have beef.

Oh and by “right people” I mean a person who just condescendingly told me all of the wrong things I did just to cover up the fact that they never sent me the correct forms. Thanks a bunch.

CRA you could easily avoid these issues by making your website less of a maze. Seriously, you click one link and then you have to sift through at least 10 more to find what you’re looking for. If I want to find information on your site I have to pretty much book the day off and pack a lunch because it is a trek and a half to locate the basics.

I consider myself a responsible adult. I try to stay on top of my finances, I try to get everything ready for the dreaded income tax time and yet I still get my butt kicked by you every year. It’s ridiculous.

This seems like a toxic relationship. It’s a lot of give from my end and ONLY take from yours (not just my money, but time, energy and sanity). I would love to be able to break up with you, sever all ties and just live in the woods far away from your reach. Unfortunately I have to be a contributing member of society stuck under your thumb. Guhhhh.

Before I end this I just wanted to give a shout-out to your equally annoying buddy H&R Block. Ever since I went to you for my March/April Challenge I have been regretting that decision every. single. day. You forgot to do so many things that I asked you to do. I still get calls from you wondering if I gave you the right forms. Dude… I saw you SIX MONTHS AGO!!! Why are you asking me about it now?! Also, yes I did give you all the things. Do you not remember? I do. I also remember me paying you an insane sum of money so the fact that you aren’t on top of this kind of blows me away.

So in conclusion…

YOU ALL SUCK!

Sincerely,

Karyn
