My phone call from the "IRS" Updated to my "visit" from the FBI?

UPDATE: Even I thought I was being ridiculously paranoid when I first made this post. However, when I set up my Kindle on a wi-fi a few minutes ago, one of the nearby networks was named "FBI Surveillance Van". Could the feds really be this stupid? This is starting to get fun.

Over the last several days I have received multiple calls from an "800" number located in Ogden, Utah (the home of the IRS), asking me to answer a "survey". Tiring of receiving these multiple requests, I finally answered the survey. The interviewer asked me many questions regarding my personal interests, particularly those that would make me VERY happy; one of the questions, right smack dab in the middle of the survey, was, "What is your opinion of the Internal Revenue Service". I told the interviewer that none of his multiple choice responses came close to my utter contempt for the IRS and its employees. The interviewer became quite agitated before continuing his questioning.

I believe I have achieved the highest state of the standard technique of oppression.

First they ignore you.
Then the ridicule you (my Internet trolls)
Then they corrupt you or someone you love (Hence, the survey)
Finally, if all else fails, they kill you.

I figure an attempt on my life within the next four weeks.

Just thought I would let you know, just in case anything happens to me.

I almost never answer...

I almost never answer 800, 202, survey or calls from unknown. If it is important they will leave a message and they rarely do. If they are driving me crazy I will answer and as soon as I hear a real human voice I ask them if they would please take me off there calling list, I say thank you and hang up. It is the law and it works, try it.


you missed the step where

you missed the step where 'then they audit you'.

If they call me,

I will be right behind you.
