A Conundrum

While my wife and I were waiting in the local Social Security Administration office we were witness to a conundrum.

A very frustrated lady came into the building where part of the process is showing the guard your ID. (I imagine to thwart any old lady terrorists out there.) At any rate, he stopped her at the door, "Maam, I need to see your photo ID.

"I can't." she growled.

"Pardon me?" the guard replied.

I lost my driver's license and I just came from the DOT and they said they could give me a driver's license with my Social Security Card. But, my husband is out of town and it's in the lock box and I can't get into it."

Now nearly in tears, "I have to fly out of town tomorrow and I need an ID to get on the plane."

The guard, trying to be kind told her, "Maam you need your driver's license to get a copy of your Social Security Card."

The last I heard was the lady telling the guard she was going to have a nervous breakdown.
