Funny Passport Application

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if its true but man this is funny and it shows the red tape we have to go through around here.




This letter is a thing of beauty (even if the language is a bit rough)..


You definitely feel the guy's pain! An actual letter to the passport





Dear sirs,



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 cable t.v. from them back in 1987, 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 security 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 damn passports I've had, on all those stupid customs


declaration forms I've had to fill out before being allowed off the plane


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, I'm really pissed off this morning. Between you an' me, I've


had enough of this bulls**t! You send the application to my house, then you


ask me for my f***in' address.



What is going on? You have a gang of Neanderthal assholes workin' there!


Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I don't want to dig up


Yasser Arafat, for s**t sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy





And would someone please tell me, why would you give a s**t 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 f***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 makes sense. You'd rather have us running all over the


f***in' place like chickens with our heads cut off, then find some asshole


to confirm that it's really me on the damn picture - you know,the one where


we're not allowed to smile?! (bureaucratic f***in' morons) Hey, you know


why we can't smile? We're totally pissed off!






- An Irate 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


.......I have served in the military for something over 30 years and have


had security clearances up the yingyang........However, I have to get


someone'important' to verify who I am - you know, someone like my doctor WHO








You Sure In The Hell Should Know Who.



..................And we want them to run our health care?!?

Sounds familiar...


Just had mine renewed a couple of weeks ago for the tune of £97.00... (around $160 US) what this is spent on is truely beyond me, a 6'x4' piece of leather like paper... 30 odd blank pages and one laminated page with my details on it...


I had to make an appointment to see them in person, have 2 photos, one signed by a guy I havnt seen since I was 4. All so I could get the dam thing in one week.


Ohh yeah, and on the day after having filled out the forms and quadrouple checked thier checklist they asked me for something that wasnt on it... you guessed it proof of address... Why the f*** would I arange for a pasport with my name and face on it to be delivered to someone else after spending over £100 on photos, transport, postage and "administrative fee's?

When I produce a lettter from the RAF that just happened to be in the folder the complain that its dated last year and its unacceptable... WTF !!!


Like I said earlier this was for a renewal, I had the last one they issued when I was 15 with me, so theyve already been provided with proof of ID issued by themselves yet they still question who I am.... morons....


Rant over lol

Here... I'll help you all really get twisted...


After 9-11, at JFK all NY/NJ PA (NY/NJ Port Authority) ID's were revoked and you had to reapply in person for a new one.


The PANY Offical showed-up at our Terminal to conduct the interviews for who I work for. Even though at that time I had been an employee of the company for over 7 years, but like everyone lese, I still had to do this...


He asks the usual questions... I had to show proper ID as to who I was, and provide an original birth certificate/DL/ Passport.... All good. Then he reads my application for renewal, and sees that I went to college... all good... then he asks me...


PA: "Well, when you graduated college, I see you were unemployed from December of 1993, until April of 1994... OK, what were you doing in that time period?"

Me: "uhmmm... looking for a job? You know, applying and waiting, the usual."

PA: "So, where were you living. It says here you were 'living at home'. Where was home?"

Me: "With my parents... I had no money, and no job. So I moved back in with them."

PA: "Yes, but can you prove that?"

Me: "What?!?!"

PA: "Can you provide proof that you were living at home with them?"

Me: "Guy... you've got to be kidding me? I had just graduated college, what did you expect?!!"

PA: "OK, well, in order for you to keep working here, and for us to give you your ID back, you need proof, signed and stamped by a Notary Public, of where you were during those 4 months from 1993 to 1994."

Me: "WHAT?!?!... that was almost 10 years ago??? What the hell!! What do you want a letter from my Mommy and Daddy that says little Junior was living at home again?!? You must be kidding me!! I'm married with a kid now... I don't get it!"

PA: "Exactly... signed and stamped by a Notary. ID denied."


So long story short... I have 8 Great Uncles and my own Grandfather that served in all branches in WWII, three of them in the Airborne during Anzio, Normandy, Operation Market Garden, and the Bulge... my father in Korea, my Uncle and older cousin in Viet Nam, 2 of my younger cousins in the 1st Gulf War...


And this is the thanks my family gets.. but Abib from Pakistan gets a free ride as he's only got a green card and could not have a 10 year background check... "I was in Pakistan before 2001!"
