The Saga Continues

The people who issued the check for the stock thickened the plot today by telling me that they cannot reissue the check differently unless we transfer ownership of the stock just to my father or to me. To do that, we have to take my mother and father to the bank and ask them to stamp a form with a medallion stamp. They may refuse to do that because my mother is going to be unable to understand what is going on. I will take my power of attorney forms, but they are not originals. I no longer know where the original forms are. I have the feeling this is going to be another nightmare. Meanwhile, I have change of address stuff to do. And I still have not been able to do my syllabus for the upcoming semester, though I have written my first, two part assignment (the first two papers of the class). I have a very good idea where the syllabus should proceed from there, but it is totally a new topic, and I have not done the thing yet. When will I have time to do it, with all of this nightmare stuff unfolding? I wish the bank would just cash the Q#@*E@! check and done with it.

Can you have your mother's power of attorney for financial matters transferred to you? This is a matter of a form from the attorney, or a letter from the doctor saying that she is no longer capable of handling her business. I had trouble doing this because my father's signature had to be notarized, but at the notary, he could not answer a simple question. I remember him and me on the porch of the city bldg., going over the answer one more time, but he just couldn't. Finally, in the attorney's office, a notary there just stamped based on the letter from Dad's doctor. What you need to have done is so simple, yet thousands all over the world can steal strangers' identities easily.

I have a full power of attorney and have had one since 2005. The bank knows that.

And yet, and yet . . .

SO frustrating!
