It’s Happening! It’s Happening!

In my office, we deal with contracts. Too often, people send us their social security number or even copies of their passports, even though we don’t ask for those. By law, we are not allowed to receive copies of passports or social security numbers, so when we receive those, we have to make sure all copies are deleted permanently. It’s becoming a pet peeve of mine, because we get this information even from legal counselors or curators who should know better. I am quite the drama queen.

Me: “Oh, my gosh!”

Coworker: “What?”

Me: “Oh, my gosh, it happened!”

Coworker: *Looking worried* “What happened?”

Me: “Someone sent us their passport… but they blacked out their social security number and their photo!”

Remember, this is the correct way to send a copy!

Coworker #2: “Wait, what?!”

Coworker #3: “You’re, kidding, right?!”

Me: “No, no, look!”

My coworkers huddle around me and we do a collective cheer. People around us even look up.

Coworker: “Not that we asked for it…” 

Coworker #2: “Hush! Let’s enjoy the moment!”

And right after that, I worked on a case that started with a social security number AND a high-quality scan of a passport.
