Gotta Love the Post Office

Today was bank and mailing day. You may not know this about me but standing in line is not one of my favorite things to do. I was hoping, since it was Friday, that the line at the Post Office wouldnt be that long but.. the place was packed. I took my little number off the spool and waited patiently.. texting and taking calls for work. Speaking of work. Have any of you ridden a Rental Car bus when you travel? This is really where the men and the boys are separated. Its a true testament to mothers everywhere when their sons stand up and hold onto that bar while the crazy bus driver takes us to the rental car center, to let a woman sit down. Its usually about 60/40 when I travel. Sometimes they will get up for older or very short women that cant possibly reach that overhead bar (its 6 feet up there), and sometimes they won't. If they don't, I wil get up (all 5'8 of me and in heels no less) since they arent... to let someone else sit and let me tell you- its rather funny to see the red faces on some of the men when I get up to let an older woman sit down. I just smile at them when they realize that their mother would kill them if she were there. Usually, my giving up my seat prompts a man standing up to offer his to me but, I'm thinking 'too Late' you had your chance to be a gentleman. (thats my soapbox for this week)

So now, my fingerprints are off to the FBI and my I600a is off to the USCIS. I think I went totally out of order (if you read my post a few days ago) and should probably have waited to get my prints done but my agency just said to send everything in now so they can start to match it all up. Hopefully it will all work out and I wont get anything back.

Its getting hot here in Phoenix but otherwise pretty quiet.

Russian for today: Spasibo! (spuh-see-buh) means 'Thank you!'
