At the rate the Vermont DIsservice Center is moving, there isn't much of a difference anyway.

President's Day will be the same speed as last Tuesday and Wednesday and only 1 petition slower than yesterday (Friday).

When VDC's movement is so slow that it takes time lapse photography to notice any movement at all, President's Day will seem like a normal work day anyway.

4 day weekends are even worse.

Way to take advantage of a holiday USCIS. As if you weren't slow enough without them.


:lol: I was thinking the same thing. But then I realized it really doesn't make much difference. They can't go much slower than they're going right now.

The Vermont Disservice Center is so slow that man evolved from monkey in less time.

The Vermont Disservice Center is so slow that there are some petitions from the dinosaurs they still have not yet processed.

The Vermont Disservice Center is so slow that a dead tree sloth could run rings around them.

Hey, what an idea for a game to pass the long weekend: The Vermont Disservice Center is so slow that <FILL IN THE BLANKS>

We have a saying in russian "If you done your work than you can go and mess around :)"....

Excuse me, yes they need weekend but I its so annoying when guys believe that VJ s small fraction of total amount bla bla bla.... Face it, they were not really working on 1-129f... Why I say so, because its 5 months and no action was observed => there were no action...

I insist they have to stop tricking people with disinformation about processing times.

Happy Holidays to VSC #### management! :whistle:

Hang in there, buddy! I now exactly how you feel! I feel the same way. On the bright side you have an opportunity for a really long skype talks with your lady! This is what I do.

I wish. First of all, Elena is a teacher of English at a private school, and her busiest two days are the ones when her adult students are off from work, i.e. Saturday and Sunday. Second, President's Day is an unknown holiday there unless you work for an American company or a U.S. Consulate. Third, her internet usage is metered, so Skype is cost prohibitive.
