Some numbers

Filed under: Important stuff,Personal — allmycke @ 6:23 pm

Got up at 6AM, started a journey that would span 750 km over 10,5 hours. I was driving for 7 of those hours (yes, I have a heavy right foot). -N- and I spent almost exactly 1 (one) hour at the offices of the Migration Board, so one of their officers could ask -N- questions in regards to his mother and younger siblings who have applied for visas to Sweden.

You’d think this could be accomplished  in an easier manner – such as for instance via Skype or a video-link – with a Notary Public present who could attest to our identities.

Apparently not.

For me

-N- deserves a bouquet for keeping his composure until the very last question. I want one for avoiding any mishaps (other dumb drivers, road crews and stray reindeer – not necessarily in that order.)

  1. Yes it is. I realise they have to follow rules and regulations – but it would save us all (taxpayers) a lot of money and time (me) if this could be done via the technology that is available today!

  2. Flowers for both of you!
    Bureaucracy is so frustrating.
