Hey, how y’all been?
What’s new in your world?
Me? I’m okay…still giggling over the letter I got from the Social Security Administration.
They’re terribly sorry about the loss of my father, but umm…could I send them back the meager amount they deposited in his account on the third of June?
Awful sorry to ask, but you know he didn’t live the entire month of June so yeah we need that money back.
If I thought I’d be able to remain civil I’d call, but I do know my limitations.
Instead I’m going to send back a letter and tell them I’m awfully sorry about their financial issues, but Daddy has exactly $169 left in his account, and his “estate” consists of a box of old photographs, so if they think there’s any money to be returned they’re sadly mistaken.
I’m still awaiting the statements from the hospital…you know the ones that list all the charges and the “Amount Due” at the bottom? Yeah, those ought to be good for a few laughs for sure.
Everything else that’s coming in I’m writing “Deceased – June 19, 2012” and sending back.
I guess we’ll see if the government can get money from a dead person.
Lord knows enough of them vote with the government’s blessing.
