The bank called this afternoon. They still haven't received the declaration of insurance I've been trying to get for the last two weeks from my homeowners association. I've been making phone calls, my loan agent has been making phone calls, and nothing. The insurance company finally told him that they won't deal directly with banks.
So i get angry. I hate being dicked around. I drive to my homeowners association office and explain what I need to the receptionist.
Me: ...and all i need is to talk to the person who handles matters with the insurance company.
Receptionoid: Okay, well, I think you need to talk to evelyn, and she's at lunch right now. So if you want to ...
Me: When does Evelyn come back from lunch? (it's about 2pm at this point)
Receptionoid: She'll be back around three-thirty, if you want to give us a call around then.
Me: That's okay. I'll wait right here.
Receptionoid: But it's going to be a while ...
And I waited. And after about 45 minutes, i think they got sick of looking at me, and one of the clerks agreed to help me. She called the insurance company, and they said they'd fax everything over - within an hour. I am promised a phone call when the fax arrives. So I go shopping, get lunch, read some magazines. No call. I drive back to the HOA. As I am standing in the lobby, waiting for the receptionoid to stop talking about her kid on the phone, the fax in the front office rings and my fax comes through. Total time spent to get this piece of paper - two hours, forty five minutes. And by the time I get home and call the bank, they are already closed for the evening. Argh. All plans for an afternoon nap have also been ruined.
But that's done, and hopefully soon i'll have my money, and then my car. And then I'll have a cool car, for the first time in my life.
Tomorrow morning I'm meeting with the administrator of the hospital to discuss the continued employment of the retard that i work with. It's just a matter of time until she kills something, and i have a list of patients she's nearly killed. I (and the other supervisor who is coming with me) am just done with this. I will not dread my Saturday nights any longer.
