Ugh, terrible!  I hope things go more smoothly after the inital few government things.

Originally, I wasn’t going to change my name.  For a few weeks after the wedding, I had some second thoughts about changing it.  Then, I had to book a few works trips and OMG, I will never legally change my name.  All I could think of was just how much stuff I would have to change and when would I ever have a few months sans travel to get everything changed at once.

Don’t you have to go in person to change your name with social security? If I could have done it through the mail I’m going to be so pissed.

Oh god, going to social security was the worst.  I tired to go before a dentist appointment at 1pm, so I got there at like 1030, thinking 2.5 hours HAD to be enough.  When I got there it was looking good, only like 10 numbers ahead of me.  Yeah… at 12:45pm, there was STILL 3 people in front of me in over 2 HOURS they had taken care of 7 people.  There was 2 people working the front desk, and 1 person coming from a back office… 3 people wokring couldnt get through 10 people in 2hours..  I was LIVID, I called up my husband just screaming like a mad person and told him this was it.  (Patience not my strong suit).  He tried to calm me down and told me we can come back later, and I told him there was no way I was coming back to this shit hole office and I’m not wasting another freaking day coming here (40 minute drive) and I’m not changing my name, I dont care, blah blah, and that I am going to my denist appointment.  The only way I am changing my name was if he got his ass down there TODAY and pulled a number to wait while I was at my appointment.  Love the man, he did come down, pull a number and sit there, and I returned another 2 hours later, and STILL had to wait 30 minutes to finally get it done.  It only took me 15 minutes once I was in there too.. so I dont know what the hell they were doing before.  *rant and reliving that awful experience over*

I think the website does it all but I’m not 100% because I haven’t done it yet
