You make an excellent point. This isn’t something we paid in years ago and have been eagerly awaiting it’s return. It’s a bonus and yet, people have had it spent and/or tracking it online, increasing the phone inquiry rate to the IRS to find out where their payment is, and generally demanding/issuing ultimatums if it doesn’t arrive.
I’ve read several emails about people complaining about their checks, come on people it is money that a few months ago no one counted on. I can’t claim my daughter either & I have thousands of dollar worth of medical bills(& growing by the day) that I’ll be paying on for years to come. But at least I’m getting something back which I can’t complain about.
