What’s with boomers and upcoming boomers obsession over “I pay my taxes!” as tho they’re the special few?
“I’m a taxpayer!” “I pay my taxes so I should be given priority!” “I pay your salary so you should listen to me and respect me” “Increment? It’s all the taxpayers money!”
Same words from different mouths. Statements that you hear and see oh so often on social media sites. Civil servants too face it daily on the job. FYI civil servants are not exempted from taxes and the taxes we pay is in accordance to the guidelines set by IRAS. Unless you pay $90k in taxes, I don’t think the “pay your salary” line works.
Every government development, you’ll see at least one boomer commenting “What a waste of taxpayers money”. How much do they actually pay to feel that pinch? Just curious as to why.
- My perception: people who talks about paying taxes (and thus feel entitled) are people who actually don’t pay that much taxes
- “Sir, if you’re the taxpayer that’s paying my salary, you certainly don’t pay enough for me to deal with this bullshit.”
- Most of these people I know who say that don’t pay much taxes ironically. The ones that are taxed heavily are multiple property owners, own cars or c suites. They aren’t that low ses to pull the “I pay taxes so listen to me” kind of BS.
