Rick was filling out YET ANOTHER FORM on line. His frustration was growing at the misc. messages for him to do things that did not cover what he wanted/needed to do.
Bureaucracy has been a major part of our lives since he moved over here.
We won't discuss the problems of on-line limitations, dealing with three countries, obstinate bureaucrats, etc.
"You must really love me to go through this?" I said to him. He could have stayed in the US with a life that didn't need all these forms.
"It is a test of my love for you," he said.
"Would you believe that I've bribed bureaucrats and IT people to make it more difficult as a test?" I asked.
His hands hovered in mid-air over the keyboard and shook his head. I'm not sure if it was at the problems or my question.
I'm not asking again.
