Why do government offices hire crusty grouchy people?
We , the people, after all, pay their salaries with our taxes---
Himself and my passports expired---
This week I have visited the office in our town, three times---
They are supposed to help you renew these documents. It's called, ""Service Canada""----
I entered this office and was immediately questioned --"Did I fill out the forms?"""
"No"---I answered. "I was hoping to get the forms here"---
She gave me 2 forms and told me to take them home to fill them out.
"Well, I was going to fill them out here", I responded---
Immediately I knew this was not the right response!
She wanted me out of her office---to deal with me later---
When I completed the forms, and returned them to her, I was told that I must take a number---
"But there is no-one else here", I said.
Again, I was told that the rules were to "take a number"-
And we sat starring at each other--me with the number 1 in my hand--her starring at her computer, pretending I was invisible---
5 minutes passed............
FINALLY------I was ordered to approach her desk----with my filled out forms---
And of course, there were problems with himself's pictures----
And yesterday I returned to that most dreaded office once again----
This time, I knew the rules, so--I took my number--
Again I was the only person there----
And again.......himself's papers were rejected----(my papers had been cleared and already were on their way to Ottawa---)
So to-day, himself is heading to "the most dreaded office""!---
He will carry his papers--hopefully will pass the test , and get his passport papers off to Ottawa---or............maybe he won't be able to travel with me------or---maybe the crusty horrible workers of ""Service Canada"" will love HIM_----Everybody loves Doctors---
Hmmm-----I'll keep you posted---
