On Tuesday my husband got off work a little bit early and we scooted downtown to the Passport Canada office to pick up my new passport.
You might remember a post a couple of weeks ago where I was pretty mad at Passport Canada because they’d made a mistake on my passport listing my birthplace wrong? Well, we had to rush to get it fixed!
I’m happy to report that all the information in my new passport is correct! Whew. That’s a huge relief. I was very worried that I wouldn’t get my passport fixed on time for my trip next week. All this worrying over my passport and I’ll bet that no one asks to see it. Yeah, I’m sure that will happen.
I guess I’m not the only one who had to get their passport fixed though. While I was in the Passport office waiting to get my new passport I started talking to the lady next to me and found out that she was also waiting to pick up her fixed passport. I asked her what mistake had been made on hers and she told me that they’d put down that she was a man!
A Man! LOL
Funny thing is .. upon receiving my first passport with the wrong birthplace listed I called the passport office and they had trouble figuring out why a mistake like that would have happened since all of the information is supposed to be typed in and not chosen from a drop down menu as I had though. But really … come on … They’ve got to be working with drop down menus. The city they mistakenly put down for my birthplace would have been very close to the correct city on a drop down list and in the gender category there’s pretty much really only two choices right? I think the lady I spoke to was wrong about they typing the information in. Had to be.
Anyway … I’m glad they didn’t put me down as a man!
