I got this e-mailed to me by a friend. This is an actual letter that someone sent inI sensored the swears just in case):

Actual letter to the Canadian Passport office

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 Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand?

My birth date you have on my social insurance card, and it is on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 30 years. It is on my health insurance card, my driver's license, on the last eight goddamn 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 pissed off this morning. Between you an' me, I've had enough of this bullsh*t! You send the application to
My house, then you ask me for my f*ckin' address. What is going on? You have a gang of Neanderthals assholes workin' there!

Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I don't want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for sh*t sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a Sandy beach.

And would someone please tell me, why would you give a sh*t 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 f*ckin' 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 damn easy and maybe make sense. You'd rather have us running all over the place like chickens with our heads cut off, then find some asshole to confirm that it's really me on the goddamn picture - you know, the one where we're not allowed to smile?! (f*ckin' morons)

Hey, you know why we can't smile? We're totally pissed off!

Signed - An Irate f*cking Canadian Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture and getting someone to confirm that it's me? Well, my family has been in this country since
1776 when one of my forefathers took up arms against the Americans. I have served in the military for something over 30 years and have had security
clearances up the yingyang.

I was aide de camp to the lieutenant governor of our province for ten years and I have been doing volunteer work for the RCMP for about five years.

However, I have to get someone 'important' to verify who I am – you know, someone like my doctor WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN COMMUNIST f*cking

Hamilton , Ontario Canada

I thought it was halarious. Probably applies to a lot of other countries too.

I'm about to read it but take any email that starts with, "SRS email guiz, my friend's hairdresser's cousin twice removed wrote this" with a skeptical view.

Edit: Yeah, I don't believe it.

dude, it's exactly the same in Australia...the country can give me a $50,000 loan to go to university (for which you MUST be a citizen), but for some reason they doubt I'm a citizen when i want a passport or drivers license,

seems quite odd really

Damn Canadia.
No matter what you do, never be "satisfied", or "settle" for what you have accomplished, be proud of what you have achieved, but never settle for average or you will never be pushed to do something extraordinary.

It's called national security. You verify that stuf every time because if someone creates a fake identity and all they do is go off the info for that fake identity then noone gets caught out.

I can fap to this. Keep going.
The truth is a passport, especially one from a strong westernised country like Canada is an important document that can't be allowed into the wrong hands.

Why do you think passport forgery is so prevailent? It's not so people can have a lovely souvenir.

You can see where the dude is coming from tho. And who actually enjoys filling out forms???
