Editor’s note:
Thanks to Paul Budde for this essay.

A Ms. Delgado calls - from Seidenbergs NY office team - she’s
customer relations but in a different physical office. New Jersey has a similar office. A friend has submitted my case there. He reads me an email of the bureaucratic reply. Laughable.
