That’s Not Helpful

I suspect it’s on purpose

I recently submitted an online request to a government office. The form was helpfully automated, as was the system to upload supporting documents. It all looked simple and straightforward.

I should have suspected a problem when the instructions included the ominous warning that, if your forms were not accepted, your fee would not be refunded.



Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
