Made the mistake this morning of using the windshield washers just after getting into the car, and ended up with a nice frozen layer of water all over the windscreen, and no visibility. Oops.
Went to the social security office to find out what was happening with my application, and the answer was: not much. Turns out they were supposed to have faxed something off when I applied two weeks ago, only they didn’t, so I now have another 1-2 week wait for an SSN. I love bureaucracies!
