I took it to the post office on the 22nd to get processed and left with a feeling of relief like I'd been released from twenty years of indentured servitude.
This was a mistake.
This morning I got a call from the National Student Loans Service Centre telling me that the nice girl at the post office forgot to bloody stamp the form.
*dissolves into hysterical laughter*
I just... I mean...
So now I have to fax some special department in the federal government two pieces of government-issued ID. It will take them 48 hours to process the fix, and after that, another 3-5 days for the service centre to issue the funds. They claim - "Rocky" claims - once again that all will be well, that my money will appear, that all I must do is fax what I have been asked to fax.
Which I'm going to do, right after I get done screaming into this pillow.
