I am a handyman, which makes life interesting at times. Some weeks, I may work 70 hours for a dozen different people. Other weeks, I can work just a regular 40 hour work week for just one person. I like the flexibility of my job, and I do enjoy being my own boss, even though I am technically working for other people. The hardest thing about this kind of work is doing my taxes. Not everyone gives me an invoice or pay stub, so I use a fake paystub generator when that happens.

I learned the hard way that having a paper trail of every bit of work is the only way to do my taxes the right way. I used to hand write some invoices myself, but I was worried that I would end up getting audited because nothing looked professional. That is when I decided that I needed to look for something online that looked professional and would help me keep track of everything. I was able to find that with the pay stub generator that I found. The neat thing is that I was able to do it all on my own, so I did not have to involve the people who just wanted to pay me cash.

It was simple to use. I had to put in some information about myself, such as my name, the last four digits of my social security number, my address and even my marital status, which is for tax purposes. Then, I have to put in the information for the person who has hired me to do something. I can put just their name, or I can get detailed with their information as well as the work that I did for them. It just makes life so much easier for me every April when that dreaded tax day comes around.

Hey, when you woke up this morning, was your first thought that you would have to bail your daughter out of jail? Can you imagine that being on the mind of any parent? Now imagine it happening to your daughter who has never been in trouble and is regularly on the Dean’s List. A girl who volunteers and is active in sports. One who does not drink or do drugs. It is surreal that we had to call an El Paso bail bonds office to bail her out of jail.

She was technically driving under the influence. She was at her job while sick. She had a really bad cold and took some cold medicine she bought on her lunch. It was the kind you are supposed to take at night. It made her really sleepy. She figured she was fine for the 15 minute drive home when her boss sent her home early because she looked so sick. She hit some parked cars and was out of it when the police arrived. She had fallen asleep, and she was having a reaction to the cold medicine. We did not even find out about it until hours later because we thought she was at work.

She was uninjured, but there was a lot of damage to a lot of cars. She told them she took cold medicine, and they found it in her purse. The medicine was a liquid with alcohol in it. She just turned 18. The amount of damage to the cars was probably a factor in her requiring bail. We never thought in a million years that something like this could happen. We are not ignorant. We understand that the law is the law, and driving under the influence goes for booze, illegal drugs, prescription drugs and over-the-counter ones too. Most people just think of booze when they hear DUI. Our daughter was a technical lawbreaker even though it was completely unintentional. She did not get trashed at a bar and try to drive home. She took cold medicine. The judge took that into consideration.
