Holy crap, your life is ruined because you had to spend thirty whole entire minutes listening to someone talk. Seriously, FYL. Just know that you can one day get through this. Dude, shut up.
The u.s border patrol is just a bunch of glorified mall cops, I remember last year I did a parade going from Canada over the border, we were in our red serge and all, and the border patrol started making fun of us, although we Are actual police officers, they just make sure old ladys on bus trips pay duty.
As if you would stand there and listen to him for thirty minutes.
#4, you obviously have no idea what US border patrol is like. If you walk away from them while htey're talking to you, they'll take you away, interrogate you, stripsearch you & basically treat you like a terrorist
I don't get it... you live in New York, but you were "coming back from a trip to the US"? I hate this culture of blame - take some responsibility for your life. Clearly, it's your responsibility to look after your own passport... shame on you for blaming someone else for your own carelessness.
actually, i think you'll find the sentence is 'my family were coming back from a trip to the US'. normally, without commas around 'from a trip', that sentence translates into 'coming back after being in the US for a trip.' thats how i'd understand it. As for rekis comment, the US is a big place, i wouldn't be surprised if they went elsewhere in the US as a holiday.
I understood it that they cam FROM a trip Back TO the US. Not From a trip in US. . So I understood they were smewhere else and they came back to USA. I think it says is clearly. 'Coming back FROM a trip TO THE US' So ye... I think there would be alot of people who agree with me.. And what comes to the FML. I wouldnt be surprised they'd do that. And I also think that he ment by it that border patrol/customs had the nerves to lecture them even when it was their own faul.. And it IS easy not to notice if the entire family enters at once gives All of their passports. Since usually there is only one family member holding the passports. And I bet they would trust the people working there to give em back all their stuff. So if there is anyone to blame is the Border patrol or the person in the family who was holding the passports.
