Peach State says: This Red Tape is Dulling My Scissors!

I wish I had this cup to use while waiting…talking…pressing buttons…waiting…
“Who needs this?” I am not the one that messed this up Royally!

WOW!. This Red Tape is Dulling My Scissors!

Long story short…the benefits we were supposed to receive were sent to the original holder of the funds. They got twice as much! I went to change the name on a document for our adopted son and was told he had benefits that were being held by a certain agency. Information was updated and changed so that our son would get the benefits owed him. “Can you say braces…paid for up front?” We waited…waited…called…waited…called…waited…called ( “It will take several months to change everything over!”)

Sorry, I said long story short! My hubby and I were informed, via income tax information, that we had received the $$$ already. “Uh…nope!” So I have been dealing with the lovely “Red Tape” all morning only to find out that the party I need to speak with are not in the office for another 3 hours.

This mommy is not a Happy Camper this morning.


I wish I could work their hours and get paid $$$ to make mistakes. I am off to rearrange my day.

Have a great day!

Peach State


About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
