I'm so disappointed and also so pissed.
Yesterday, in the mail I got a letter stating that the documents I had provided were not sufficient for passport purposes.
And then I was requested to fill out a supplemental form in order to further prove my identity. WTF?
I call the passport agency and ask some questions regarding the supplemental form like do I really have to list every single place I have ever lived inside and outside of the U.S. since I was born? The answer was, "um, yes."
me: So, I cannot just list the places I have lived on my own as an adult?
passport rep: Well, it's best to list every address that you can.
me: Can I just name states or countries and list broad ranges of dates of when I think I lived there? I was an Army brat and don't remember all of my physical addresses.
passport rep: Yes, if that is all you can remember.
me: Can you tell me what the discrepancy was that flagged me to have to provide extra information to prove my identity.
passport rep: Did you recently renew your driver's license?
me: Uh...yes...yes, I did. I had to get a reclassifcation.
passport rep: Yeah, your driver's license is too new.
me: Too new?
passport rep: Yes
me: Is it rude of me to say that is a bit crazy?
passport rep: ...
me: *sigh* Okay, thanks.
So, y'all if you apply for a passport any time soon make sure to not renew your driver's license first because then you'll be required to mail your first born baby with a red, white, and blue birthmark on their forehead in order to prove you are a true blue American.
Of all the things to be flagged for....aaaaaaargh! Just give me my passport, already!
