8:57 a.m., at the social security office, in line waiting for the doors to open at 9:00.
Guy ahead of me: I shoulda got here at 8. Then I wouldn't be all the way at the end of the line.
Me: But then you just would have spent an hour waiting in line.
Guy: But I woulda been at the front.
Woman ahead of both of us: Either way, you gonna wait an hour.
