Excuse me while my head explodes.

Fortunately, userinfocashewlou left a couple cherry stouts here from his visit, becauseafter dealing all day with Insane Federal Paperwork (and getting it shipped outta here), I no longer care whether I get approved for doing contract work for Social Security.

This is the first paperwork that has asked me to list all my relations, including ex-spouses and deceased children. In addition, just to do eight-plus hours of work tomorrow with no guarantee of additional work, has cost me $50 out of pocket today–$20 to get fingerprinted twice (they needed two copies), $20 for a replacement black ink cartridge for my printer, and $10 for a new belt to replace the one that committed suicide this morning. So I’m going to drink four beers (the above mentioned cherry stouts, plus two java stouts now so I can get a little hammered today, and still be useful at the SocSec office tomorrow. Tomorrow, they have no choice but to have me on board. After that, no promises–they have to do a security check on me, and at this phase, I would not be surprised if my anti-Bush writings get me on some watchlist.

Just… fuck.

Edit: Make that $70 out of pocket to work tomorrow–today–whatever. My good shoes committed suicide, too. AAAUGH!

    how did you hear about that job?

    Good luck to you!

      Placement agency. They’re not technically going to have time to clear me to work tomorrow, so I don’t know if there’s going to be more or not… but there could be, assuming I clear the background check. Then, I’ll be going all over Ohio, more than likely–though I asked for no Cleveland area jobs because it’s a three-hour drive. Toledo’s 2.5 hours, but I have family there I can crash with. Dayton and Cinci are worth driving there and back in one day.

    *hugs* What’d they want to know about ME?

      Name, year of birth, current street address, and I think phone number. You may get a call asking about me–this is for the most basic security clearance level. And they wanted everything just for that. Most incredible bullshit I’ve ever seen for a job application.

    List me as one of your deceased children, that will throw them for a loop.

      Anything to make the Feds go “Wha-fuh?” sounds like a plan to me.

      That was the question that threw me for a loop anyway, having to list Valeria. Almost 13 years ago… hard to believe.
