Sawasdee khrap, I hope that I don't get banned/raped for using a foreign language that's not English.<?>"[_)(> I just wanted to share how "stressful" my renewal of visa and work permit yesterday was. 8.30: Went to school to sign my contract, but nobody was there. ( Thai clocks tick differently) Mrs. Misscoordinator and the big man arrived 90 minutes later. Mrs. had a fight with her printer and couldn't print. Maybe she forgot that we've also got printers at school?- memory stick- print job done. 11.00: Took the woman and my wife who had to make a guarantee for me ( now the third year in a roll, Filipinos are excluded, because I "make more money.?" out to lunch. 11.50: After dropping wife and Thai women off, I walked into the Immigration. One farang, hopefully metisdeath, forgot one document and they told him to come back, so no waiting at all. 12. 15: Left Immigration with a brand new visa extension that still had the smell of fresh paint on it. The usually needed documents were not needed. My contract, my copies of passport and WP was enough. The chat with my friend the Sergeant Major had not much to do with the visa itself and I could sell her one of our puppies, which she then picked up at 2 pm. 13.10: Arrived at the LD, of course was the letter of employment missing. Misscoordinator knew it, I've told her thrice, but finally it wasn't a problem. Told them: "Poo Ooo bai Diaeu leo ."Then the question when filling out the form: "Do you need it today?" Hmm, yes, thanks. Sure, Ma'm. 14.00 : Left the LD with an extended WP and a new visa and a smile in my face. 14.10: Immigration picks up a puppy and leaves my place happily. A total of 1 hour and 15 minutes for both ain't that bad, or? Life's good.
