I'm beginning to think that football game will go on forever. I've stayed well away from the TV since it came on but David's glued to it. I've reluctantly come around to watching Canadian football but only when our own Winnipeg Blue Bombers are playing. ...just not really my cup o' tea.

Iam having one of them roon the bend sorta days since for the 3rd time in a row we have gone to the post office to deal with our Aussie Passports applications only tae be sent away again due tae us no haein the correct paperwork ,1st it was proof for me upon the 2nd visit so I had to go get a ID card made since ahm no a driver the 1st time we missed the post office by a few minutes,then today we were told we had to come back with our proof of citezenship paperwork which we accidently left behind after visits 1 & 2 so we are having a no Go No Talk zone in this wee part of the world the day it aint a happy campus thats fur sure as we each blame the other. rolleyes.gif Beurocratic nightmares occurr during th daytime it seems so 3 times we have visited yet still haven't gotten the applications in motion so mibbes the morra may bring 4th time lucky is there such a thing? ah wunner????
Elma
Hope you are talking again soon Linda! You do have to go through the hoops with these official papers, it's quite a performance isn't it?

You are lucky you can go to the Post Office, in Canada we have to go to a Passport Office which are only located in the large cities or send everything by mail to Ottawa for procesing.
RonD
A couple of years ago, Inga was applying for a passport renewal. It was mailed off to Ottawa and we waited and waited and nothing. We were going to the states and Inga doesn't drive and so no valid photo ID. We wanted to get into the States ahssle free since we were going there on business. I finally had to go there alone. Finally we got a note from them that that we owed them $2.00 if she wanted it renewed since we had used an old form that we obtained from the post office. GRRRR !
wee mags
hi Ron I thought it was a good game although Iam not into Football too muh I watch so that when my sons say did you see that throw ?I can say "aye a did son wink.gif
'

as for passports dont get me started it took me asking my sons seator to help us so that I could visit my sister in London ,my son had applied for a new one ,he even paid extra ,well needless to say it took 4 months before he got it ,it was the time the States said you had to have passports to go to Canada or the Bahamas,and the rush was unbelievable
Elma
I had to wait 4 months for my passport renewal last year too Mags, same reason, offices were clogged with applications because the US said no entry without a passport. Now we can drive over the line with photo ID and proof of Canadian birth or citizenship, need passport to fly in though.

I'm sorry the Pats didn't win but I don't understand football, give me Hockey, Rugby and Soccer any day tongue.gif

Finally we got a note from them that that we owed them $2.00 if she wanted it renewed since we had used an old form that we obtained from the post office. GRRRR !



What makes me ticked off Ron is I like Inga don't drive [Iam sick of being penalised for that by the way!]therefore the post office said they won't do the processing untill I get an 18+ card.Now lets see the inteligence of this now.......Iask won't my citezenship papers birth certificate & Brittish Passport do for you to process my paperwork?...................Lady at Postoffice promptly said NO! Only an 18+card.,,,,,,,Dissapointed off we go to transport dpt wait an hour then get asked for.......you guessed it yet?....passport citezenship& birth certificate ,I was livid as thats all we required for the purchase of the 18+card yet the woman at post office said No! you need only the ID card so tell me then how come to purchase this 23 dollar card did I need just the above mentioned yet the post office wouldn't accept them yet they insist I buy an ID card which uses the very documents the post office rejected working that one out had me furious & we missed the post office the next day.

The day after that Neil said we don't require to take anything but your new iD card so we just took the ID card.........The post office a different lady this time, said yes you need your birth certificate your Brittish passport your citezenship papers & your new iD card so work that yin oot we were green at the Gills & red in the face with rage,To top that off they only process for 2 hrs a day between 2 & 4pm so we couldn't go get the paperwork & return on time so yet another day goes by with yet another wasted trip!

we eventualy goes in yesterday afternoon to be told[bare in mind I brought the lot & decided to bring Neils despite the fact Neil says he won't require them all as he has a drivers licence ]The same post office lady from the other day said with a dead pan face I hope you know Mr Macdonald will require all the same paper work as you Mrs Macdonald? Neil was about to flip when I calmly saved the day handing over his stuff to the lady ,she proceeds to tell us we cannot use our photographs we had taken so both of us needed our piccys taken again! Oh My God I was seething inside & had become very miserable with the whole set up as was Neil.

we came out of that post office Jiggered & 412 Dollars lighter not to mention my 23 dollar iD card so this aussie passport experience took 4 visits to post office i fight with each other an hour wait at transport office & in total of an overpriced 435 bucks! yet we couldve just used the initial paperwork we had the citezenship papersbirth cert & Brittish passport since thats what the 2nd lady wanted & the ID card was a by product of extra points we didn't realy need it,we will never go back to that post office again & I don't think I will ever want to speak to those two women with their differing rules whom caused us 4 days of trauma again either! mad.gif spitting chips of rage here mad.gif However Neil & I made up that night after 3 hrs silence hehehehehe
