A Dollar When I'm Hard Up V

Remember that transcript fuck-up for the post-doc I'm applying for? It cost me badly today. It cost me a lot of time, as I paid my health insurance bill, convinced the drone in the registrar's office I'd paid my bill, even though it wasn't showing up on my student financial account, hoofed it to the post office, and got the god damned transcripts in the mail.

And it cost me money. A lot of money. $24 for two sets of transcripts printed while I waited, and then $28.50 to get them sent overnight to the exotic foreign post-doc locale to make a hard deadline. So today's costs put me at $449.48 for the year.

God damn, that's really starting to hurt.
