Erin v. the World

In the case of Erin v. the World, another round goes to the world. What could possibly have happened now you ask? Seriously, you don't want to know. But I am becoming more and more convinced I am on the receiving end of a very cruel joke.
Here's how my day went-
1. Call the Utah Wage and Labor Commission to yet again see if there is any progress on my claim to get the 5 weeks of pay from my old employer. As usual, no one answered my questions or my call.
2. Call Utah Unemployment Insurance and yet again do everything possible to get my claim moving so I can get some money. After all I haven't been paid since early July, and I could really really use some money. Because the old employer is not cooperating, it could still be several more weeks before I see a cent. (It has been a month.)
3. Call EuroSport, the company that did some body work on my car, and get the paperwork proving I paid. There is now a recall out on that body work and I'd like to get reimbursed for it. I have called them 6 times now over a 2.5 month period. It boggles the mind what on earth could be keeping them from sending it.
4. Get the mail to find 2 different letters from the State of Virginia. The first one was from Fairfax County and was mailed to my old address and is a tax notice saying I owe property taxes from 2007 (when I didn't live in Fairfax County, cause I lived in UTAH), and if it isn't paid by TOMORROW, they will put a tax lien on me. The letter was mailed over a month ago. The second letter was from the State taxation department saying I failed to pay taxes in 2005! This one was sent to my current address. Do you know how many times I have moved since 2005?? I have no idea where I am going to find proof that I paid taxes in 2005. (But as if a slap to the face I easily found my 2006 and 2007 taxes.)

Seriously, this has got to be some sort of cruel joke. I spend my whole day trying to get money from one state just for another state to demand money out of me???
