12:20:2003 Entry: "Ann : Bratty old deaf rocker, I am."

Bratty old deaf rocker, I am.

Called up the Perkins Loan people because I never received my bill for this quarter. They told me to put some number in the "mlamla" section on the check when I send it in to them. For the life of me, I couldn't understand the young woman who I was speaking to. The "mlamla section?" To me, the closest thing her mumbling sounded like was "The Meddle Section". (Yes, have been listening to too much Pink Floyd, funny you should ask). I knew that was not possibly what she could have said, so I asked, "The middle section of the check?"
"No," she responded, "the mlamla section." Good god. I was lost. "On the left," she explained further.
"By where my name is?" I asked.
"Yes," she said, "I mean, on the bottom. On the left."
"Where it says notes?"
"Yes. There."
"Um...ok...thanks." I still hadn't a clue what she said.
I explained it to Stan when I was off the phone. "The Memo section!" he said.
"Oh, MEMO!"
I'm deaf.


Then after an excruciatingly long wait at the DMV trying to get our car plates transferred, the woman who was waiting on us said something in a very exasperated tone to me (because I *dared* ask her for clarification) to which I responded, "Well, you don't have to get mad at me!!!!"

I'm just not in the mood to deal with crusty people right now.

Stan's wife has an attitude problem.
