death and taxes

i just looked at this month's payslip today...

this month, income tax + social insurance = is about 30% of my wage...

so that means i get 70% of what my company pays me...

then pretty much everything i buy in ireland has 21% VAT on it...

that means at the end i have about 0.7*(1-0.21) = 55%

so 45% of my worktime is spent working to pay for lazy civil servants, and other assorted bumbs.

crumbs...
