Ah, alas we meet again… my old nemesis… Mexican bureaucracy


So I decided it was about time to get my passport again, since my old one was stolen. Yea, sure that should be easy enough… I will go to foreign affairs nice and early, even a half hour before they open, and wham! I will have my passport in no time. Ohhh what a fool I am. Bureaucrats all over the world are hateful and pitiful people… the thrive on hammering away your soul pile of paperwork by pile of paperwork. They have no regard for the value of your time and will not hesitate to give you the wrong form just to see you squirm and bash your head in to their little both like one of those stupid fish who keep banging themselves up against their little fish tank. Anyway… as you can probably guess I do not have my passport yet, nor do I expect it anytime soon. I basically spent all morning there just to be told that the forms I have are useless and that the hours of lines I made were in vain. Aditionaly it now turns out that I have to deposit the money for the passport in to a special bank account at a special bank… which by the way will not let deposit since I am not a client… ME: HERE HAVE MY MONEY, BANK: ASSHOLE: NO! how does that work? Maybe I blinked and somehow what used to be the way economics used to work just poped out of existence… or maybe the people at the bank (as well as at foreign affairs) are just arrogant assholes. Anyway I do not know how this is gonna get sorted out, but it has to… since I travel to Canada in April, although I could just travel with my Canadian passport… but no! NOW ITS PERSONAL!
