Dear Evil Large Law Firm/Former Employer--
Yeah, you. You came along at the beginning of 2004, and took over the firm where I was working. I was happy at that firm. But the partners were greedy, and they sold out to YOU. You and your promises of a better life, a bigger future.
YOU, who said we'd get the same quality of work, but everything would be better - better support staff, better salaries, better offices, better clients.
But you LIED. So I left after 3 months, and I went to another firm. A firm where I've been very happy for the last 9 months, thank you very much.
YOU, who docked my pay when I left. You, whom I still hear my friends and former coworkers complain about.
YOU, who treat them badly, cut their vacation hours, block their 401K contributions, give them zero bonuses even though your partners are listed among the richest and most highly compensated in the country.
YOU, who still reach from the grave to haunt me, because now I want to get my taxes done and get my refund. Because I need the money for a down payment on an apartment.
But I CAN'T DO ANYTHING because still haven't gotten my W-2 form from you.
YOU, whose Accounting Department has totally ignored and stonewalled me. Can the people who work for you even return a phone call? Or are they too important for that?
That money is mine, and I'm entitled to it because I've payed my taxes quietly like a good citizen.
SO GIVE ME MY FUCKING W-2 BEFORE I COME AND KICK THE SHIT OUT OF ALL OF YOU.
