Bahahaha! Nightmare and Carmachu and Miss Keeks---you guys were right. You can't "mess" with the bureaucracy.
I logged into the college system with my new handy dandy Student ID number a couple of hours ago, and pulled up my account.
My "permanent address" is now the one I've actually been living at for the past 10 years.
But my name? Ye Gods!
I'm listed as Attila S. Mom.
"S"? WTF? Where did that come from?
So I called down to the admissions office and asked about it. The cranky admissions lady said I would have to come down in person and show them my driver's license.
I said, "You took a photocopy of it yesterday! What did you do with it?"
There was a pause.
You still have to come down and fill out a form.
Is there some kind of sadistic vibe going on here, or is it just my imagination?
Now I know what a cat toy feels like!
