11 things you’d rather be doing than your tax return

1 min read

Tax time is right around the corner. While some of us have been waiting ALL year to hit that button and submit our tax return, others would rather be doing, well, anything other than their taxes. Instead of digging through shoe boxes full of faded receipts, and desperately trying to crunch the numbers, here are 11 things you’d rather be doing than your tax return.

1. Burpees

Hello gut-wrenching, vomit-inducing exercises.

2. Cleaning the bathroom

And welcome to the wonderful world of mould.

3. Using dial-up internet

No need to rush, you’ve got nowhere to be.

4. Going on a gluten-free diet

No bread, no pasta, no reason to wake up in the morning.

5. Attending a 6am bootcamp

Yes let’s run around in the dirt, while everyone else is still sleeping.

6. Trying on all your clothes that don’t fit anymore

It’s so much fun to see how much you’ve grown.

7. Getting stuck in an elevator

Because everyone loves small, confined spaces.

8. Having your wisdom teeth pulled

9. Sitting in a doctor’s waiting room

Don’t forget to read all the germy magazines.

10. Chatting to a telemarketer

Hopefully they’ll call right when your dinner is ready.

11. Taking public transport

Any time, any where.
