Driving With a Suspended License, Checks in the Mail, and Other Bad Things.
So, it seems that I have extremely bad luck with checks in the mail. I swear, every time a check is supposed to be mailed to me, something goes awry. The first time I noticed was three years ago when some stupid old man ran a stop sign and t-boned my car, and it took almost six months for me to get the insurance check. I had to call them and have them re-issue it, because they swore to God it was in the mail...
Earlier this year, I had my stepmother do my taxes. When June rolled around and I still didn't have my tax return, I was getting suspicious. Turns out she'd written in my address wrong. It was another six weeks before I recieved the check...
Now, at the beginning of August I worked at the World Bank for one week as an independent contractor, inventorying AV equipment. Fifteen dollars an hour. I should have had my check two weeks ago. So I called them. They said they didn't have my paperwork (W9, signed code of conduct, etc etc). They should have, because I faxed it to them before I even started the job, but whatever. They e-mailed it to me so I could fill it out and send it back.
See, I don't have a printer. I also sleep all day, so going to the library is out of the question. So it took me a little while before I found a place where I could print the stuff out, fill it out, scan it, and send it back. I did all of that. I'd just put it in a zip file, and I went to my e-mail to send it. I had a message in my inbox from the paycheck people. They said nevermind. They'd found my paperwork after all. WHAT THE HELL? But anyway, I'll hopefully finally get the check next week.
In other news, I thought my license was suspended. My insurance lapsed back in June, so I figured that at least by now they would have caught up with me and suspended my license. I was certain of it. So certain that I didn't actually go online to check. I waited until I had the money to buy new insurance (which I would have had sooner if I had my PAYCHECK!). Turns out my license was valid this whole time, and I've been driving like a grandma for no reason. Go figure.
There is a reason that the name "Mallory" is Italian for "Bad Things."
