Last night I went to a "local" bookstore (Borders) to see theauthor of American Ground, William Langewiesche, talkabout his book and the experiences that he wrote about.  Langewieshe isprobably a really fun guy to be friends with as he has no time forpretension, pretentious people, ulterior motives, unnecessary politics andthe like.

On 18 Sep 02, I requested a PIN to access information about my Wells Fargostudent loans. According to an e-mail that I received from Wells Fargo on18 Sep 02:

"If you have not already received your password, it should arrive in themail soon."

It has been 34 working days since 18 Sep 02, and I have not yet received myPIN number. In fact, I'm beginning to doubt whether or not such a PINnumber was ever generated and sent.

Can you tell me the approximate number of months that it takes amulti-billion dollar organization like Wells Fargo to send a letter toWisconsin? Will I receive my PIN number before my loans are paid off(inapproximately five years?)
