First Things First; Let's Kill all the Postmen.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Three weeks since I've sent the petition. 19 days since the check cleared. NOA1? Eaten by postmen.

And according to the very nice immigration officer I spoke with at Vermont this morning, the receipt notice was printed and mailed and sent to the correct address on 9/20/06.

Ooh, may itchy powder be placed in the shorts of the mail service. So far in September: returned bills, returned job offer, returned friggin' mail from Homeland Security. Oh, but the junk mail gets through! Spare me not the influx of cataloguey goodness.

Not that anyone cares terribly about my mail saga -- hell, I don't even care that much -- but I did manage to call USCIS and speak to an officer in about 5 minutes. Which was very cool and should make anyone happy. The menu system isn't too bad to navigate. 1 for main menu, 2 for current applications, 6 for pending applications. Somewhere in there I had to put in my case number (obtained from the reverse of the check by calling the bank.) Listened to the automatic status update (blar, blar), and then after the mechanical voice admonishes you that the live person won't know any more, there's another menu where one of the options was 'If it's been 30 days since a receipt blar blar.)

Anyhow. It's only been 21 days (figured they could hang up on me later), but I pushed that one, it connected me, and the very nice VSC lady checked my address and then said she'd send me a manual letter since she didn't have the clearance to generate a duplicate receipt. Not quite sure what that means, but she was very polite, and with any luck I will have something besides an envelope on which I scribbled down the information from the banker.

I hope you write for money; you're fun. :)

I'll care: Poor thing! Rotten USPS! bah!!

PS: put your name on a little card inside your mailbox. And have a word with the mail carrier, and/or the Postmaster at your post office. Others have imporved their odds with that.

That's what the nice VSC lady said. (She had the softest, most soothing voice, lulling me into believing that DHS is my friend....)

My name is on the apartment door, in the box, and I've called the post office twice. I think I'm going to post a big pink sign on the box saying 'DUDE MY OLD ROOMMATE MOVED, NOT ME, YOU CAN TOTALLY TELL BECAUSE WE HAVE DIFFERENT NAMES!!!'
