I applied for my first social security card two weeks ago, in Brooklyn. I have the receipt. They told me to call them when I didn't receive my card within two weeks. When I called them today, they told me I just have to wait a little bit longer. It stresses me out, as this SSN is my gateway to a lot of things. (credit card, getting paid by work, etc).
Does anyone have experience with this? How long did it took for you? I'm on a O1 visa.
Thoughts on travel to Paris in late Aug given the current travel chaos in Europe? I just recently flew what shouldve been a 2 hr flight with a layover and ended up with a 48 hr hour ordeal and lost luggage that was only returned to me 2 days later. Im a glutton for punishment clearly but would love to go to Paris in late Aug and I am planning on direct flights only with Air France. Any experiences with CDG or Air France lately? Alternative would be a midwest road trip

We are thinking of pulling our 8 month old out of daycare due to delta (and no vaccine mandate) and having a nanny until she gets the vaccine. Our cleaning lady expressed interest (totally trust her) and could do it two days a week and she may have another friend do the other three days. Is this a bad idea? I trust the caregivers, just in terms of logistics. Also, there will likely be a language barrier. We are also thinking of doing a nanny share but it’s hard to find another family.

Chase ultimate rewards:
So I found out chase ultimate rewards messed up with booking my vacation return flight. They forgot to get a ticket issued. I talked to customer support and the “best they could do” was book me on a different but similar flight, I would be getting back at midnight instead of noon and giving me 7k points for the inconvenience.
For future reference was I entitled to more since that this error messes with my initial plans?

If i accept offer letter in Cognizant in One Cognizant Portal, i can't go for any other company if i have better package??
In this new job i work with all men, mostly sales guys who make a lot of money. They respect me and listen to me. It’s so tough for me because I’m always trying to read into everything, for survival. My one boss said today when I mentioned I’m struggling to read the political environment and that I’m learning its usually really nothing, all in my head... he said, “you’ve work mostly with women, huh?” Not sure what to make of that.
