I freely admit everyone has problems, but my friends tell me my problems seem to be a little more unique than others. And I swear they are stupid problems. Last year I got a credit card as usual when the last one expired, but my bank had changed from KEB to KEBHana. For some stupid reason beyond me, they reversed my name. It has a longer expiration date, but why the hell did they reverse my name? Some of the internet shopping had no problem but for some I was a new customer. So I just went with it and made new accounts. Now, in most things except my passport, in which it is required, I only use my first and last name, not my middle name. My name is unique. It is only shared with two other women in the world but I got it first and for them it is their married names. But somewhere down the line paperwork got buggered up and i had to change my name at the phone company because my immigration card uses most of my foreign name. Not all of it. There is not enough room for all the letters in my middle name so when I arrange for packages to go through customs they have to have my strange almost full name but with the abbreviated middle name. The post office and immigration have to contact a phone number with exactly the correct name. So off to the phone company I went.
So before I called today I tried one more time to watch "The Good Place". I clicked on it, expecting to get the same stupid irritating form to prove my age (like really, how often do we have to prove how old we are when we are over forty?). And what happened? The show started. I must really love television to go through all that just to watch some. But truly, none of this stuff happens as much to other people than it does me. I feel like I am under a special curse of stupid crap that can only happen to me. But at least I can watch some good English language tv now. But the age verification has to be redone every year. I will let you know how things go next year.
