I drop by TJ's in IC when I visit my sister in Iowa City, but I don't make a special trip to go out there. I'd suggest dropping by - they've got a bunch of decent frozen options, some decent pastas and pasta sauces, too.

I wouldn't go there just to visit TJs, though.

My dad was bit in the army in the 80s and ended up being laid up for 4 1/2 months while he healed up. He had a huge divet in his leg where he was bit, and it stayed bright red for the rest of his life, and always kind of scabbed over where the wound site was.

What the question stated...is what do I do?

Your answer, no shit.

My goal of the question was to reach a conclusion of the necessary actions needed to reach a solution. Do we call them up and say hey yes I messed up, my bad tell me what I owe?

Or is there a procedure I should do to make sure they don't tack on any overly large fines/penalties, etc. Is this where the CPA comes in that was suggested above?

I have the cash to pay it back (i guess, depends on the amount) As I have heard horror stories of the interest/never-ending payment cycle of IRS debt.

It sounds like you're going to get hit with an accuracy penalty which is 20% IIRC. You can't get around that, it's not going away. If you thought you owed 10K, your accuracy penalty would be $2,900.

You will get hit with a failure to pay penalty.

You will pay interest between April 2017 and now.

Expect to be audited slightly more often in then upcoming years.

I would take it to a CPA or an enrolled agent (And never that lady again - yikes!) and tell them what happened. You'll need to pay the EA/CPA $$ to represent you in front of the audit. Could be $500, could be $5,000 depending on your area / how long it takes.

You could also admit what happened to the IRS agent and just...accept what they give you, but you're going to pay the 20% accuracy penalty, failure to pay penalty, interest. You'll have to repay the 4500 you received, and you'll also want to amend your state tax return when you're finished with this, because the IRS forwards this stuff to most states, who then begin their own audit 1-3 years down the line.

Correspondence audits still take time, expertise to understand the issues, understand what's going on and handling the response times. I would advise getting a CPA or an EA to handle this for you, or you can throw yourself at the mercy of your IRS agent handling it and hope they're reasonable. Most are, some aren't. This could also trigger audits for the previous 6 years of tax returns if they wish (So 2011-2017).

A lot of the people here who complain about it grew up here and never left, so they don't appreciate some of the things

I love the fact that there's no traffic, most things are within 20 minutes,. I love that I'm 3 hours from Chicago and 5 from st Louis, twin cities and Kansas city. I love knowing most of my neighbors and the fact that they give a shit about me(both at work and at home, both neighbors are pretty awesome). I love the fact that it's a big enough town that it feels like there's anonymity but small enough that most people know each other within a given industry and makes it easy to get connected to them.

It's honestly not much crime around either.

In case anyone was wondering what our local city flags looked like, like I was, I've attached the ones I could find!

https://imgur.com/a/K6FDXSE

Edit:

Also, I was viewing this from the old style of reddit where the ONLY thing here is a link to the video by Roman Mars. /u/Mostlyconjecture actually posted this:

I recently rewatched a TED talk by a fella named Roman Mars, wherein he described the aesthetics and general design guidelines of city flags: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnv5iKB2hl4

It got me thinking that none of the Quad Cities really has a flag in particular, and being a native of Bettendorf I decided to take a crack at one for us. All I can find for an official flag is the basic Bettendorf logo. Not a bad logo, but also not really a flag.

So here's what I came up with, and hopefully the symbolism is clear enough there.

https://i.redd.it/4dz4jrwn0vm11.png

Just a little graphic exercise really, I don't expect it to gain much traction since there are bigger issues that any city has than flag design, but if you're an aimless and artsy kind of person and feel like giving it a shot, please do post what you come up with here.

Happened to my wife and i a few years ago after a new family moved into the apartment below us. Bloodspots on the bed, occasionally seeing them crawling in the carpet engorged with blood, constant paranoia about bites after we got them removed. And our poor cat sleeping all over the place couldn't get away from them.

It was definitely traumatic. We had to throw out our bed, a couple chairs, a dresser with inaccessible crevasses, and our couch. We disassembled some of our wood furniture that had hiding spots. We moved shortly afterwards and had to be extremely meticulous with everything we owned, lest we ended up with them in the new place. Luckily it's possible to kill bedbugs by laundering your clothes, but even then immediately after coming out of the dryer the clothes have to go into a sealed container. And then, because bedbugs can stay alive up to 12-18 fucking months without feeding we had to wrap almost everything we owned into double and triple wrapped trash bags and gigantic ziplock bags. It was only more than a year later that we regained those possessions.

I can't imagine going through that again, especially now that I have a kid.

They recommend now-a-days to just kill them with heat. If ya bring the temps up to I think it's 112 or 115 degrees it'll kill the eggs, the larva, the bed bugs and the hibernating ones. We did a steam treatment on everything (All walls, all trim, all wood, all of the carpet, all of the closet, all of the wooden bed frame, EVERYTHING) replaced the mattress (Already had it wrapped in a "3 zipper" system) and then added a 2nd one and then removed it from the house, and the new mattress had its own "3 zipper anti-bedbug system" installed before it left the delivery truck and THEN the nightmare was finally gone. It was a long 2-3 year process to get them out of my parents home. A solid year and a half of that process, though, was thinking the pest control company had a handle on actually killing ALL of the bed bugs. They had gotten most of them, but I think if we did the above sooner it would've went better for us.

But a whole-household heat treatment is pricey but also kills the little fucks, but you gotta find someplace to crash for a few days while that's going on.

The issue with La Finca's is all of their food is super super inconsistent, and sometimes their tamales are quite good and other times they're incredibly bland and have almost no filling.

My family makes tamales every year for Christmas. It really depends on who is making them and how much experience they have making them. I’ve only had one bad tamale there, which may be the exception and not the rule

Ahh, I bought a dozen tamales there twice a week for....long enough to know that it was just a 1d3 if it was a good tamale, meh tamale or just bad tamale. Plenty of tamales where the masa was just awful and barely binding together, or faaar too wet/dry. Either way I stopped going to La Finca and ended up hitting Primos / Nallys / Mexicana / Primevera or any number of other places in town because they're food was far more consistent. I've been hitting up nalllys lately because free delivery means i can be far too lazy.

I think you have to grow up with Rudy's. I like it, but it's essentially Mexican for Lutherans. While it's certainly better than your typical plains region "taco" shack, all the same basic elements are there: hard corn shells, dubious cheese, and not much of a sauce game. BUT they also have decent tortillas available, they're generous with spices, and their service is reliably on par.

Edit: I must add that there are much better Mexican spots in town, and I pretty much only go to Rudy's for the nostalgia factor and convenience. La Finca may be the best in Davenport, and Nally's Kitchen right down the road is a great spot. Adolph's in East Moline is one of my all-time favorites, but the best restaurants of all are in Silvis: Taqueria La Rosa De Michoacan, Cafe Lolitas, and El Pueblo are all right off 18th Avenue. There are also some home kitchen operations where you can order and pick-up. I think those are technically illegal, but they're difficult to regulate.

Edit 2: I had a brain fart and mentioned Alfonso's earlier when I meant Adolph's. There is an Alfonso's but it's a pizza place in Rock Island.

That photo set was actually pretty outraged a lot of people, but Roseanne didn't have a television show or anything so you're correct that not as many people saw it because... Not as many people were interested in what a former TV star did 25 years after the fact.

In the course of comedy, sure they are more than welcome to push boundaries, and I appreciate that. However her tweet storm wasn't in the pursuit of comedy. And if her punchline is SHE LOOKS LIKE A MONKEY she should probably retire.

No, she was a washed up star that wasn't popular anymore that almost no one cared about. I have a large number of Jewish friends and they were COMPLETELY outraged by the fact she did that. If she had the Roseanne show in the 90s and dressed up as Hitler baking cookies, I don't think she would've had a show then. The reason it didn't become a national conversation was because she wasn't really in the public eye anymore. Was I personally offended by this? No, I was not; I personally thought it was designed to be controversial so she could (hopefully) springboard off of the controversy to become a larger public figure. Whether that attempt was successful I do not know.

Curious to see how you felt about James Gunn?

I think James Gunn was in a similar position for Roseanne - what he did was in the past, was a shitty thing to do, but shouldn't have been cause for him to lose his job - just like Roseanne shouldn't have lost her show over the Hitler thing. But the Mouse wasn't going to have any of it, and Gunn ended up being the causality over the response to Roseanne losing her show.

I gave a homeless "vet" $50 because he claimed he was a Vietnam vet who worked in my dad's... Company? At the same year (September of 67 through Oct 68) but had no idea what the FBO was called, and was very upset at me for wanting to take him to the local vet hospital(he was asking for more money for medical bills).

Very upset about giving him a fifty for being a fake; but this was in the weeks following my dad's passing so I was looking for a way to connect more with his military history.

Assuming you’re talking about

local taxes

Meaning your municipality level taxes, typically for OH you only owe tax to the school district and/or city that you live in. The municipalities you work in don’t charge you tax. It’s a residence based tax.

This is not entirely true. You get charged for the city you work in, and MOST cities grant you a credit for whatever you paid another city, but there are certainly exceptions to this rule, notably Cleveland does not give 100% credit and most other towns don't give credit for Cleveland either.

There's actually a type of debate called policy debate, where people read even faster than that guy was talking. The idea is that if you talk faster, you can make more arguments, but a side effect is that it's really inaccessible to people who don't participate in it. Here's a link if you want to see what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj4pQe11eZc

There are plenty of lazy and shitty things that horde players got, too - the wod wolves were awful, as were most of the wod horde buildings. Alliance got way, way better stuff that expac. I didn't think that WoW hated the horde and their bias was showing and how they're trying to destroy the faction - they just got cool stuff. That's awesome, I love getting cool stuff!

That's the way it goes some days. If you like the horde stuff, cool! Play on the horde side for an expac. Like the alliance stuff better? Awesome, play on their side! You don't even have to reroll a new toon anymore to do it.

Not near as much as Alliance.

the wod wolves were awful

We got them too. Horde gets only one more wolf mount than the Alliance and Alliance gets only one additional Elekk. WoD mounts were shit all around, there is no faction imbalance there.

Alliance got way, way better stuff that expac

No we didn't. Only the garrison aesthetic can be argued for and that's simply because default Horde aesthetic of spikes is straight up not as appealing as default Alliance aesthetic of generic stone building.

I didn't think that WoW hated the horde and their bias was showing and how they're trying to destroy the faction

Because they weren't.

That's the way it goes since cata. We passed days, we are 7 years in.

If you like the horde stuff, cool! Play on the horde side for an expac. Like the alliance stuff better? Awesome, play on their side!

This isn't a preference argument on the players' side, Horde straight up gets more attention and better stuff, consistently. The problem isn't that I didn't like the mounts I got, the problem is that Horde got bunch of unique mounts and I got only horses. That is the problem and it is just another in a long list of problems.

Here is the thing you all seem to be missing: As Horde players your logic goes as "I enjoy the game, so surely it's all good". And when I tell you it's not as enjoyable on the Alliance side, your reaction is "nonsense, you are wrong, I have nothing to complain and that means everything must be peachy for you as well".

Like, Horde players enjoy stuff, Alliance players don't. And instead of accepting that the cause may be a disparity in quality of content, Horde players go on long rants about how them being satisfied means Alliance players are just whiny. To lack self awareness this much is annoying. Has it ever occurred to you that maybe, just maybe, the reason you don't feel shafted or ignored or neglected is because you aren't but the other side is? That the reason you enjoy stuff you are given but the other side doesn't is because the stuff given to the other side isn't as enjoyable?

You should absolutely be keeping track of your hours, and whenever you leave you should be reporting your employer to the DOL. This is blatantly illegal and I hate seeing people get screwed over from the hours they're working that their employer is too cheap to pay. Your documentation will be key!
