The Lord Giveth, And...

This morning, my boss called me into an impromptu meeting, where I was thrilled to discover that I'm getting a raise as a reward for a job well done over the past six months.

This evening, I got home to find a council tax bill, as a reward for crippling an orphaned puppy in a past life.

I know it's crass to discuss one's financial details in public, but I feel the need to share this gross injustice:

Total extra income gained between now and when I leave this job: £720
Total council tax due during that period: £695

Net gain to me: £25
Cost of one round of drinks to celebrate raise: £25

Real life blows chunks.
