Tax day used to be fascinating to me as a teenager watching the news with footage of long lines of cars at the central post office late into the night arriving in time to get their returns postmarked by April 15th.
Now that I pay taxes, I have figured out that the people in these lines are either incredibly stupid for not filing their returns earlier to collect their refunds earlier. Or they are earning enough that they have to pay taxes over the amount of their standard payroll deductions. Neither is worth pity from my decidedly middle class viewpoint. Plus, who mails their taxes any more, anyway?
