Today I had to go to the Social Security office. There is one office, then there's Suite B and then across the way is another office. I walked on in and then walked in the inner door only to be stopped by a security guard who said "Step back out and check in" gruffly. I went back out and there was a computer or something which asked me for the last 4 digits of my ss #. I lightly touched the four digits on the screen and a little receipt came up from another machine and I was #37 and had to wait my turn. There was one person inside a window, behind glass to wait on everyone. Luckily I didn't have to wait very long, but long enough to hear how curtly people were treated.
What was going on in the other two offices?
That was a very surreal, weird experience.
