If you ever need to call Social Security for any reason, I suggest…. Don’t. Had to call to report my Gram’s passing and damn… I had a 20 minute fight with their ‘helpful automated system’, got put on hold for 4 minutes, my call was answered by this barely-English speaking (no offense to non-English speakers, but I could not understand what she was saying and I was already frustrated.) monotone woman who put me on hold AGAIN for another four minutes, when I was taken off hold, I answered one question and listened to another four minutes of COMPLETE SILENCE while I waited for her to check things (can’t decide if annoying hold music or complete silence was better), finally gave her all of my information, only to be told that I didn’t have to do anything, have a nice day.
Thank you, SSI, for wasting almost an hour of my day.
P.S.: If you were recording my call, I apologize for threatening to kill your automated help woman and calling her a bitch. And for telling your automated hold guy to shut the fuck up and get me to an agent already.
Now, for some reason, this scares the heck outta me. Can someone explain why?
I love you. :D
Fang: Oh my God…
Me: Your fault.
Fang: I’m alright. Maybe if Saint would update a fanfic once in awhile, you’d hear from me more.
Me: Oh, stop whining.
Fang: Stop procrastinating.
Fang: Make me a sandwich.
No, I haven’t, but I’m definitely looking it up. I’ve actually always been interested in learning sign language, but haven’t had the chance. I know my college offers a course on it, but my schedule’s never worked out. I think I’m gonna try to sign up for it sometime next year if I can.
