Survived the INS One More Time

without comments

Yesterday I had to go the local INS office to be fingerprinted for my FBI name check, step one of the citizenship process. Well, step two if you consider applying step one? Pretty relaxed atmosphere, very quiet, just me and two Mexican dudes who seemed to be struggling to fill in their personal details form. Anyway, a few pushes of the digits on the machine later and I was on my way out. The driver of the bus to Gitmo seemed disappointed not to be taking me this time.

I asked how long before my interview and was given a shrug. The office is moving buildings and as a consequence they have no idea which box my file is in, and therefore no idea where it is right now. The officer told me to forget about it and then it would be a nice surprise when they get in touch.
