Default Re: This is Stunning: How I Renew my British Passport in Brazil

I apologize for the obscenities but I didn't edit the original...

Actual letter to the Canadian Passport office

Dear Mr. Minister,

I'm in the process of renewing my passport,
and still cannot believe this.

How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number
and knows that I bought a t.v. cable from them back in 1997,
and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me
where I was born and on what date.

For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand?

My birth date you have on my social insurance card,
and it is on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 30 years.

It is on my health insurance card, my driver's license, on the last eight goddamn passports I've had,
on all those stupid customs declaration forms I've had to fill out
before being allowed off the planes over the last 30 years,
and all those insufferable census forms that are done at election times.

Would somebody please take note,
once and for all, that my mother's name is
Maryanne, my father's name is Robert
and I'd be absolutely astounded if that
ever changed between now and when I die!!!!!!


I apologize, Mr. Minister.

I'm really ****** off this morning.

Between you an' me,
I've had enough of this ********!

You send the application to my house,
then you ask me for my ****ing address.

What is going on?

You have a gang of Neanderthal *******s workin' there!

Look at my damn picture...
Do I look like Bin Laden?

I don't want to dig up
Yasser Arafat, for **** sakes...
I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy beach.

And would someone please tell me,
why would you give a **** whether I plan
on visiting a farm in the next 15 days?

If I ever got the urge to do
something weird to a chicken or a goat,
believe you me,
I'd sure as hell not want to tell anyone!

Well, I have to go now,
'cause I have to go to the other end of the city and
get another ****in' copy of my birth certificate,
to the tune of $60!!!

Would it be so complicated
to have all the services in the same spot to
assist in the issuance of a new passport the same day??

Nooooo, that'd be too damn easy and maybe make sense.

You'd rather have us
running all over the ****in' place
like chickens with our heads cut off,
then find some ******* to confirm that it's really me
on the goddamn picture

- you know, the one where we're not allowed to smile?!
(****ing morons)

Hey, you know why we can't smile?

We're totally ****** off!

Signed - An Irate ****ing Canadian Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture
and getting someone to
confirm that it's me?

Well, my family has been in this country since 1776
when one of my forefathers took up arms against the Americans.
I have served in the military for something over 30 years
and have had security clearances
up the yingyang.

I was aide de camp to the lieutenant governor
of our province for ten years
and I have been doing volunteer work for the RCMP
for about five years.

However, I have to get someone 'important' to verify who I am
- you know,
someone like my doctor
