Thanks for (officially) nothing George W. Bush

“I bought a white 3G iPhone BEFORE I found out that although the government sent me a letter saying I could expect my $600 soon- I’m not getting a check after all. Turns out my parent’s accountant claimed me as a dependent even though I filed my own tax return and don’t depend on them financially. Also, I’m 25. Now I have a $300 bill to pay for the phone. The other $300 I was going to use (like many others on here) to help pay off my medical debt. I’m uninsured, struggling financially through graduate school, and can’t wait until things get better. The good news is the iPhone is amazing! “
