This week I filled out the paperwork to volunteer at my local library. I was somewhat surprised that they will do a criminal background and medical history search on me. What surprised me the most however was that I had to show them my social security card (not just give them the number). I don't remember ever having to actually show my card before. I had to tear the house apart just to find it. I finally found it. It was in 2 pieces and so faded as to be barely legible. Afterwards, I put it in my safe deposit box. So, do you know where you card is and have you ever had to show it to someone?
