WTF?? I finally went and changed my last name legally so I could get a new drivers liscence, I spelt my last name correctly at least 5 times on the form I had to fill out plus provided my marriage liscence with the correct spelling of my last name…I recieve my new social security card in the mail today and they spelt it alllll wrong!! It’s not that uncommen of a name and is only 8 letters long….now I have to go through the hassle of having them change it to the correct spelling….grrrrr

@Whitanella: Good lord! I hope that doesn’t happen with me. So frustrating not to mention inconvenient. I’m so sorry! I hope this time it’s correct even though it should have been the first time.

@mrs.t_finally: I hope it dosnt as well!! He told me it was probably just a slip of a finger….but that slip of a finger just screwed up my name and put me getting my new drivers liscence on hold! GRRR!! I’m sure your experience will be better!!

@Whitanella: Yeah that is very frustrating. I’m dealing with my own frustrations. It’s been almost 6 months since we got married and I still haven’t been able to change everything over because when they did my taxes they screwed up on paperwork and it went to fraud review. They’re finally finishing the last bouts of telephone/document verification and verifying information through my ex-husband so maybe by next month I’ll finally be legal lol.

It took THREE tries for my credit card to get it right. Three. Including being on the phone and spelling it out for them.
I can tell who listens in life – just cause you *think* my last name should end in -en, it doesn’t. It ends in -an. So I know you weren’t listening, mr. credit card dude. Cause I clearly said -an but you still put -en.

Same thing has happened to me. Now I have to take time off work to go back there and fix it. I’ve already taken time off to do it before. I told them and printed how to spell it, because the marriage certificate is in sans serif and capitals I’s look the same as lowercase L’s. He even misspelled my dad’s first name (ever meet a man named FredriE? Me neither.) and street address. After we corrected the forms and I asked again that he put an i for the third letter of my new last name and was told yes, I signed off.
New card came in yesterday and my name is wrong. Dear Government Employees, I know your job is not the best one out there, but do take the time to treat us like people and freaking LISTEN and take the time to review what you put in the computer. Everyone makes typos, but it’s your job to look them over as you can really screw up our lives with incorrect government documents!!
