More stories. Please?

Well, 90% (or 95%, or maybe 99.9%) of them are more like:

The client came in on time, brought most of what I needed to do their return. Gave me the missing item a few days later. Their taxes ended up being about what they expected. They thank me for my time, pay my fee and leave, never to be seen again until next year.

Somewhat less than half include some whining and moaning about how badly the government does at spending tax money responsibly. I politely nod my head and continue with the tax return.

All in all, not very good as a story.
