Uncle Sam Wants to Know -- What's Wrong with Chuck

Since I was passing the Social Security Office, I thought I would "drop in" and change my address. SillyBoy, you do not drop in to any government office.  There was a waiting room filled with people. On my scooter I wended my way through a crowd, a citizen in a power chair like mine having to move so I could scooter through.

I told the recotionist, "I'd like to change my address."

"What day do you get your check," he asked.

"I don't get a check. I just want to update my Social Security file."

"You don't get a check," he asked in disbelief.  Here was a room filled with people who get checks, or want to get checks, or whose checks are missing, and now... here came an odd ball who doesn't get a check.

There must be something wrong with him.

I didn't tell him I get my check from the Veterans' Administration.

Looks like to me you should be getting Social Security also but I don't know very much about how that works. Helen
