That and a tax return . . .

Our federal tax return this year is four dollars--just enough to buy a small (grande? venti? picante?) cup of Starbucks. Lucky me, my wife started drinking coffee a week before tax day.

So, should I be more troubled that my tax return covers only a cup of coffee, or that a cup of coffee uses up my entire tax return?

What you should really be troubled by is the fact that, when coverted to pennies, your tax return won't fill up your Tall coffee cup.

That, my friend, is troubling indeed.

If you look at the cup of pennies (or Cafe Breve, for that matter) as being half full at least you don't owe money and have to cut back on said Breves :).
