First one refused to put the supervisor on.

So, I went into the office, everything was bent. They couldn't fix it, but they did cut the check. Like, the supervisor got locked out of the computer repeatedly from trying to fix it.

My guess is I have to do this again in a week or so, but for now rent is covered.


What happened was they mailed the "are you a felon" form to my old address. To answer the question, No, I am not a felon. They kindly printed me a copy. Also, it was a request from 2016.  Which means it's cowpoo, someone bent up on the computer, and they needed to show face.


So now I'm sunburned and angry, but the anxiety spike has been removed from my brain.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Very annoying when they are obviously reading from a script and haven't heard or understood a single thing you've said. It's usually best to bypass first tier if you can.

Yup, third one I talked to made me go through the whole security verification checklist.

I wasn't trying to do poo on the phone at that point, I already knew it was pointless. I just wanted to schedule the appointment instead of sitting around like bumpkin.

She lied and said they only do walk ins.

It was kind of cool, when you walk in they have a touch screen system where you tell them why you're there. And the first thing touch screen asks? "DO YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT?"

Another fun thing, I had my statements loaded up on my phone, but the BOA app wouldn't load in the building. Lesson learned, I'll bring PDF's next time. I think we have like, three printers? I'll be bent if I set any of those monsters up. Printers are a sin against god.


[update] dang I am burnt. the temperature went down a bit, but mine didn't :(       Stupid sky orb, stop injuring the pale!

I think I put one too many jalapenos in this chili. Other than that, it kicks ass.

Well, I'm Irish, so, I MUST keep my distance from stars.

what a beautiful morning.
Hanging out some washing and above me  the baby house martins have fled the nest and their chorus of joyful rapture flying in the morning sun was heavenly to hear  :) :)

yes, actual Irish people despise the habit of Americans calling themselves Irish.

My family emigrated mostly because they were being murdered. There's a monument about that somewhere in... Sligough?

I imagine I share their lead allergy.

Actually, the entire World, including most Americans, hate Americans. Glad I will probably be gone before the SHTF.

I hate to break it to you, but you are American.
Sorry to correct you, but, the only true Americans are NATIVE Americans.

Fortnum & Masons sends me daily emails, usually trying to get me to buy expensive hampers or some such.  Today they wished me a happy independence day.  That's gracious of them.  I don't feel particularly happy about the state of our failed democracy.  We have a despot for a leader.  The legitimacy of his election has been cast into doubt for any number of reasons.  We have gerrymandered districts that ensure the victory of a minority party despite the purported "will of the people."  That's a joke.  And the legislature is so skewed that they have politicized the judiciary to the point where they're simply a puppet of the GOP.  State legislatures continue to pass laws that ensure that women and minorities will not enjoy equal protections.

The ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence have been subverted.  It's a moving document and it would be nice if people were required to read it once a year.

At times, I think we might have been better not seceding.  It might have meant lower shipping charges for tea from the UK, at least.

I would say "original" instead of "true". Just because my people weren't born here, doesn't mean I'm not an "American" (which of course the term applies to anyone from North or South America really).

I don't hate Americans. There are plenty of decent Americans.

I do hate the stupidity that has completely hijacked national discourse.

politician wants tanks rolling like he's Dear Leader or some poo.
