Do I Count?

Apparently it is census time here in my fair city and it is times like these that I wonder how and if I should bother to try to be counted. 

I pay my taxes, at least those that I am asked to pay. I pay payroll taxes, sales tax and yes gasoline taxes, to name a few. 

The one thing I don’t pay, either directly or indirectly (through rent) is property tax. So I suppose in the eyes of the city I don’t exist nor do I count (at all).

Due to how I am living I don’t think the city enumerators will find me and even if they do, I don’t know if my answers will help them at all. 

After all I am single, live alone, have no kids and don’t pay any property taxes. So why would they bother to count me?

Still, I am a person, just a person whose life is in a bit of limbo as I correct a fiscal situation that should have been corrected years ago.

Who knows, I may call up the census people and give them the address of where I usually park as my “residence” and try to get counted, just for fun.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!

  1. LOL, Some of the thoughts that go through your head make me laugh. Of course you matter, but only to those who matter to you. Do you count... Why would you want to?
