Why Canadian-Style Health Care Frightens Me

So I’ve at least begun moving into my new apartment, and doing it mostly on one’s own can be a bit overwhelming, though naturally, far less stressful than moving out.

I’m going to have to speak with the people at the office here, because I’ve noticed some confusion over what my new address actually is. According to the Post Office’s webpage, my address is now:

Jason Walker
2929 Fish Hatchery Rd., #105
Fitchburg, WI 53713-3137

On the other hand, a woman at the office here the other day insisted the Zip Code was 53711, and sure enough, that seems to be the Zip Code on all the published material. Even more confusing, they list “Madison” as the city, and I specifically remember being told that even though we are in Fitchburg, the post office in Madison actually handles mail here, and therefore “Madison” should be listed at the city. But the official post office webpage spits out the above Fitchburg address, whether I specify 2929 Fish Hatchery as being either in Madison or Fitchburg.
