This is really ridiculous
I've been calling and calling and have gotten nowhere
I want to sit and cry
I'm so frustrated
It's been 13 weeks
Contemplating a lawsuit
Her bank account has $60 in it
Finally got a call back
I got through by some miracle
I give up
I'm at a loss of what to do anymore
Wisconsin has dropped the ball on this whole situation
