I got my new license in the mail in like 2 weeks.

Oh, and did I ever tell you about when I went to change my name with my bank. I still bank with Bank of America (even though I'm no longer an employee.) So the first thing I did was call them and ask what was needed. They told me I could go to any branch and all I needed was my marriage certificate (MC.) I even told the woman on the phone that my MC is in Spanish, would that be a problem? She said no. Ok great! So I go to a branch in my neighborhood and ask them to make the change. They tell me I need my SS card too (which I hadn't received yet.) And I was PISSED because I SPECIFICALLY called and asked so I wouldn't waste my time. <<Ok, shake it off Jen, shake it off.>>
So, I wait for my SS card to come in the mail and I attempt to visit a different branch. When I get there, they tell me there is no one there to translate the MC. <<You have got to be f*cking kidding me!!>>
So I go to a THIRD branch and basically tell the guy, "This is my third attempt to change my name - here's how it's going to work." He was very apologetic and said he would help me. I told him I was an ex-employee and that the freaking bank has my fingerprints on file for crying out loud. He thens asks me if I have any other documents with my new name (in addition to the MC and SS card.) I was like, "Buddy, I'm going to STAB you if you don't change my name today." He changed it. Needless to say, I'm looking for a new bank.
