Ever since that day in September when my loving fiance became my husband and I agreed to change my name I have been frustrated.
Let me tell you why.
1. Changing my name sucks!
2. Why don't men change their names, instead of the wives. That would make my life a WHOLE lot easier.
3. Before I can file taxes, book my flight for fun to FL, or do anything. I have to file paperwork.
Now don't think that I am lazy and have not done anything since September. I HAVE
-a new drivers license
-all new bank cards
-new credit cards
-changed my mailing address with almost 3 million companies (well at least it feels that way)
What I have not done
-gotten a new social security card. Which means that I must DRIVE all the way to Minneapolis, most likely wait in line for more than an hour. Fill out paperwork and get a new card. Now I must do all of this on a WEEKDAY, between the hours of 9-4. Can you say inconvienent.
-Changed my name on my delta skymiles acct. Really should it be that hard. Do I really need to fax you a copy of my marriage certificate? Just to book a flight. Come on. It should be a simple online change. Why make my life harder
-Gotten a new passport. So now I am unable to travel outside the US. Why have I not got a new passport you ask. Well because they are expensive, and I swear I just got one a few years ago.
If this does not convince you that men need to change their names. Or that you should not get married. Then I don't know what will...
