How Do You Spell Efficient? U-S-C-I-S

Back in April I was waiting for USCIS to process our updated country change. I sent them letters. I called them. I e-mailed them week after week after week. No response for WEEKS.

This past weekend I was looking at our updated I-171H for Ghana and noticed the fingerprint expiration date said 10/29/10 instead of the previous 10/29/09. At first I was thrilled at the thought of not having to travel 4 hours to have our fingerprints re-done in October. Reality did set in and trying to avoid any problems down the road I let them know of this potential error via e-mail.

Of course, being the prompt and efficient office that they are I quickly received an e-mail this morning stating: The error in your fingerprint data (10/29/2010 instead of the correct expiration of 10/29/2009) has been amended.

Thanks...I think.

Typical! Jumped right on the alert that you will owe them more money and paperwork, didn't they?! :( And we wonder what the heck is wrong with our government and economy :)

Hang in there - progress is being made, I'm sure!

Oh so untimely, so inefficient, so wasteful. I am swooning with delight. I looooove the government. I want to marry it.

Oh, yes....wouldn't you know?
Well, hopefully, it won't matter in the least.

Is it possibly to say very prayerfully, "WHO CARES??" LOL Hopefully, you won't have to care one bit, friend!

I read that headline of yours and said "What????"

Because when we have dealt with them on any level, we know who they are!!!

Wow...unbelievable. Make sure they don't miss a chance to check and see if you've committed a crime!
Sorry I've been a little absent lately....Know that I am ALWAYS praying for the day when you can bring that little Mercy home where she belongs,and praying for overwhelming peace for you as you experience disappointment with the wait. Oh, boy do I know how that is....I so appreciate your prayers for my Gracie too.
