sincerly, irate canadian citizen

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 crying out loud, do you guys do this by hand? My birth date, you have on my social insurance card, on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 30 years, my health insurance card, my driver's licence, on the last eight bloody 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 ticked off this morning. Between you an' me, I've had enough! You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my freakin' address. What is going on? You have a gang of Neanderthals workin' there?! Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Ben Laden? I don't want to dig up Yasser Araft, for crying out loud. I just want to go and park my butt on a sandy beach.

And would someone please tell me, why would you care 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 bloody 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 easy! You'd rather have us running all over the place like chickens with our heads cut off, then find some bozo to confirm that it's really me on the stupid picture - you know, the one where we're not allowed to smile?!
Hey, you know why we can't smile? We're ticked off!

Signed - An Irate Canadian Citizen

As someone who just had to go through all of the above to get his passport renewed, that letter is gold.

fuck, then you have to wait in the passport office for hours. That was a big pain in the ass. But procedure is procedure.

Ree Fresh is an unknown quantity at this point
As much as you would think it could be easyer... I would think the reason for you re-filling in everything again and again is to ensure it is up dated. Even more important for security reasons so someone else cant go in and claim to be you. Having every single document and being able to fill out any possible pice of information is very hard to impursonate.

As for the farm question... did you ever watch the episode of the simpsons when bart brings in a frog to australia and they mutiply like flys? Anyways dirt/soil from one coutrie's land can be very harmfull dangerouse to our/other countries agriculture.

Having all the facilities in one building would make sence, how ever think in terms of hiring a photagrapher. Im sure they would make more money owning their own buisness and probly more expencive if they had a booth set up at the pass port office.

its true tho... i'd laugh if someone was to talk like that infront of me... actually if someone was to ramble on the way he did, i think i'd bust a gut.. words on screen are definately not as funny as hearing them live...
