I got my economic stimulus bonus today, it's going to be spent on paying off debt and buying new glasses for myself and Mrs. Hat.

I don't think I'll be getting it :cry:

Why you may ask?

Well, for starters, I got all my tax back in my last tax return, mostly because I was under 18. Other reason? Low-income tax credit. I'm also a student, but not with Centrelink, so no Youth Allownace or anythig like that.

My sister has hers but I don't have mine!!

Not sure why....I'm fairly certain there should be no problem.

No one at work has received it either. Damn the world!!

There was an article today on AdelaideNow about the airports being filled. Someone posted about how glad they were that the shops were closed for Good Friday. Their response: "but people want to spend their $900!" Fuck you. :rant:

They're handing them out randomly over the next 6 weeks. One of my parents got theirs, the other one hasn't yet. We're not sure who did and didn't get it because they get their tax refunds paid into a joint account.
