Ladies and Gentlemen brace yourselves please...I HAVE A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!!! Yup, after 21 years of being an American Citizen I'm actually an official person! I can get a job, pay taxes...oh...damn, I have to be a responsible working adult now...maybe I'd better actually finish writing my fantabular resume now.
I applied for it almost 3 months ago, and when I phoned the Embassy in London they just logged on to the Baltimore SS main office computer and told me my number. If I hadn't called I'd prolly have waited another month or so for them to actually TELL me my number. Burocratic delay is great isn't it? Even better when you're trying to spell it.
