I have the pleasure of visiting the Social Security Office this morning to take care of Terry’s Affairs. I have been trying to come here to get help for the last 10 days. Every time I drove there I continued to see a sign on the door saying the office was closed due to not having any power after Hurricane Irma. Now that they are finally open I decided to get up bright and early to go back. Once I got there, I was surprised to find such a long line of people waiting that wrapped around the entire building just to get inside. Now once I finally got into the building, I was told “take a number please” from the Kiosk machine. Now 2 1/2 hours later after patiently waiting, my number gets called. I was excited! However, after going to the customer service window, thinking I would finally get things done, I was only told that this was merely a screening counter and I would need to take a seat again and that my name would eventually be called. Unfortunately they said that there were 45 people ahead of me! Oh my God !!!!….It will probably take another 2 hours before I finally could get to see anyone to hopefully get things accomplished . This was a real test of my patience !! Unfortunately, what I need to do can’t be handled on line or via the phone. So here I sit patiently waiting and waiting and waiting.
Hope you all are having better day than me!
