I like your attitude.... complaining will only drag you down further and does more harm than good... Congratulations!

After reading your post, it makes me so angry. These people in the embassy are a**holes! Come back in 3 or 4 months? Are they crazy? They don't seem to give a rat's ars about what their applicants have been going through for the last year! They are dealing with people's lives here! They are so cold it makes me sick.

Anyway, congratulations on getting your PINK. I can't imagine what you were going thru those days when it was first dis-approved. But you are finished now and you won't have to deal with those arsholes anymore at the embassy.

AGAIN...CONGRATUALATIONS! :thumbs:
