    Thanks for all the hard work from those of you in the field - we do appreciate it. We are all new at this, and pretty much everyone is a temp., so I also appreciate the flexibility as the guidelines have changed. This is a different country than 10 years ago.

    I am so grateful for the work. I am exhausted - been in the office since mid-January working from 5-6 days a week, sometimes around the clock. We get the crazed calls in the office. One woman called in to complain about having to be interviewed - it was a waste of here time (a constant comment) - and she demanded someone tell her why she had to do this. She kept the clerk on the line for 42 minutes (this was all in Spanish, by the way) and never did finish the interview. Arg. Waste of her time.
