I have filled out multiple forms and got multiple permit to get in the US as im sure many have too since 9/11.
I have jumped through hoops and lord knows what else to get a permit to visit Che Guevara's tomb in Cuba.
I've sat in immigration for 10 hours at Sydney airport just because I had a dairy lee triangle of cheese on my person and they didnt know who made it.. I had to fill out forms to trace its country of origin. As the European Union wasn't a country in their eyes. I had to find out which country it was made in. took me ages to find out. It turned out to be Belgium. If it was Greece apparently, I wasn't allowed in. Not sure why.
Ive sat with Police in Dubai filling out forms for hours because I bought something off a street trader.

But none of that, absolutely non on that, gets anywhere close to trying to get a Blue Badge (disabled parking permit) for my 90 year old parents, one just had a stroke, the other heart problems, from Oxford County Council. Or to go by their other names The Red Jobsworth organization. OMG. Give some people power.
Taken a week so far and now they need a passport photo. My mum hasnt had a passport for years. And I have to get her to a booth and get one taken. And then prove she can't walk 50 yards.
I said so basically she has to fall over within 50 yards to pass that? The guy then said . I'm only doing my job. No need to be like that. I'm not here to be abused. .. grr Give me strength. !!!

Frustrated isn't the word. Letter to my MP coming up.
I do my own photos - light background is all that is needed - I use a white painted door - then crop the image to the size parameters as per the request
Worth thinking about Roger.... I bet Kitty's got a Blue Badge. After all, she has every other badge here. :D
