oh my..the social security office.....

I had to go to the social security office to get paper work for my new job ( that's right I got a new job FINALLY, more on that later), but I lost my card and had to get a replacement...I needed one anyways since I got a new last name (thanks new family).... someone told me to get there right when it opens.. I didn't listen.. I got there at 9:45am rather than at 9am...
I wish I could blog from my phone, but since I can't .. I just texted my friends Becky and Merrianne my morning there....

Text 1
Me: CRAP, the Social Security office is PACKED!!!
Becky: Boo
Merrianne: is the line Crazy long
Me: My number is A155

I watch as the man is falling asleep and his kids are giggling about it.. his daughter keeps poking him when he seems to be really asleep.. his son takes a different approach and throws his jacket at him which smacks him square in the face! His wife see the whole thing and does NOTHING!!

A man limps away from one of the open windows where he was being "helped" and says loudly for everyone to hear.. " WELL THAT WAS A BIG WASTE OF MY TIME!!! BEEN HERE OVER AN HOUR FOR TWO MINUTES OF NOT A BIT OF HELP!! "

Um...he waited for over an hour.. crap..

Number 37... Number 37

SWEAR WORD, my number is A155!!!!!!

oh finally, a chair to sit in....

There is a lady who's nosey asking everyone why they are here today..

I've been sitting for I think 15 minutes now..

the man with the bratty kids fell asleep and I guess his daughter stopped poking him awake, because he missed his number being called...

SS worker: I'm sorry, we called that number, and you didn't come.. where you here? You'll have to get a new number

Man: I didn't hear you call my number, and the number you are on has surpassed the number that I have .

(Who uses surpassed in this situation)





This lady walks in and despite the hat she is wearing, her EARS ARE HUGE.. oh, and let me not forget to mention that this woman is NOT wearing a bra to hold up her breast that are probably bigger than mine were before my reduction procedure.. GOOD GOSH WOMAN!!! Did her two daughters that she came with not mention that maybe a bra would be a good thing to not forget when out in public...

There is an Arab man that apparently works with just the Arabs, because when he goes to his window, the two Arab gentleman sitting behind me, get up and he immediately helps them, and then leave..

um, how long were they here?

Number 43.... Number A140

Number A 140 apparently has been using the wrong name her whole life, because it's suppose to be one name, but on her card it says a different name..even her momma thought she as Debbie.. nope.. she's Deborah the SS worker tells her....

Text 3? Where has the time gone?
Me: A meth head chick just walked in... she keeps twitching and scratching her head.. she gets helped RIGHT away!


Text 4:
Me: Why the hell does this kid keep yelling ," MOM, Mom, MOMMY, MOMMY, MOM, MOMMY, MOM, MOM, MOM ( insert SCREAMING NOW topped with CRYING) MOM MOM MOMMY MOM.." this kid sat so quietly the whole time they were waiting, and NOW, he PICKS NOW to need something!!!! UGH


Me: Praise the Lord, they called my number!!!!

time spent at the window.... 5 minutes
time spent waiting...2 HOURS

note to self...keep your card in a safe place, that you can remember!

PS I'm glad you had to get a new card because that means you got a new family. That's kind of a really cool thing for me. :)

There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

I am the queen and this is my year, and nothing, NOTHING is impossible
