Speedy Service

The passport office may be run by Big Brother, but they certainly are fast! I dropped off my application last Thursday, and a week later I have it!

In fact, I could have had it yesterday if I'd been home when they delivered it (you have to show ID of course). They said it could be processed in 10 working days (plus delivery) and it took only four. For a government agency that's impressive.

I was so not expecting it this quick that when I found the delivery notice in my mailbox last night, I didn't know what it was for. When I picked it up at the postal outlet, the envelope was so nondiscript (besides my address, the only markings on it was a return postal code, I assume so as not to tempt thieves) that I still didn't know what it was till I opened it.

Now I'm free to flee the country.
