In a recent post, I described trying to reach Medicare to discuss why Tim's application had been approved in the matter of weeks, when mine had been in process for over three months. It struck me as so very strange that after being on hold for 45 minutes, the perfectly awful music was irritatingly clear yet as soon as the operator came on, the connection became tinny and vibrate-y and oh-so-far-away sounding. We got through it as best we could (she refused to call me back) and she told me that my application was still in process (which I knew...but the question begged an answer: "Why???? Why was an application that was supposed to take 2-4 weeks to process taking over 3 months?")
She basically blew me off and said that I'd have my card by the first of July.
I totally did not believe this, but I'd gone as far as I was going to go with this call. I asked if anyone out there cared to place a wager.
Guess who has been listening to that same shit music for 35 minutes this afternoon? I'll let you know how the connection is when (if?) anyone answers.
