I hate admin. Especially when it shouldn't be done in the first place. I need to get a new ID book, drivers license, bank cards, sim card swop, new cellphone etc etc etc...
I went to my bank this morning. It never occurred (stupidly) to me that I would need identification. I don't have any, so it wasn't on my mind. I only clicked when I stood in the longest queue. They couldn't help me. I had to go back home to find my passport which was (of course) not where it was supposed to be, so cupboards were emptied and I eventually found it.
I drove (nervously) back to the bank and stood in the Collection of Cards queue for 20 painful minutes. I finally got to the desk and I was told I was in the wrong queue. I had to apply first and then come back. I got all teary. WTF was that? I do not get teary about things like this. Pissed off, yes, but not teary. The bank manager saw my face and came over to help. I must have looked like a real little damsel in distress (hate that) because he helped me draw money so that I could actually buy food. It's become desperate times not having a bank card over a long weekend.
I am still waiting for the bank card. I collect it in 5 working days.
I then went over to my cellular provider to get a sim card. I also remember asking for insurance on my contract cellphone when I got the new phone a few months ago. Apparently they have never taken money off the account for insurance so I'm officially not insured. I blew a fuse. Yes. It's my fault I never checked the statement, but I know for a fact I sent off all the paper work. I remember because it was a ball ache, um.... if I had balls, they would ache. Ok so, they were adamant, I was adamant and we had a staring/ glaring competition until eventually I cried. AGAIN. Seriously? WTF?
I am just one ball of sobs lately.
I got the sim swop done and bought the cheapest phone I could find. I now need to tackle the home affairs and traffic department for my ID and license. You have no idea how excited I am about this. I am basically giddy with glee!
I'm about as excited as gagging myself over and over with a fork! Cannot WAIT!!
