today was such a hectic tiring day, n most of all IRRITATING day!!!!!!!
i went to college for absolutely no reason at all.. actually, i had a lot of work to do.. but nothing got done cos of lazy ppl!!! d teachers themselves delay everything till d last minute n they yell at us for not keeping our work up to date!my zoology records were due on monday. i spent d whole day ( from 9am till 3.30pm ) writing non stop to complete everything, n submitted both d records... n till today, none of it is even corrected! ( leave alone attestation!), n d teachers r d ones who tell us not to leave everything till d last minute!!
n then i had to go to d FRO ( Foreigner's Registration Office ) to get my RP ( Residential Permit ). i did it myself last year.. n i should have done it myself this year too!!i couldnt go on my own cos i didnt have d time.. by d time my classes get over.. d FRO would be closed already.. so i gave to my good-for-nothing education consultant! he's only my education consultant for namesake n to snatch money from me! i told him like a hundred times that there'll be a penalty of USD 30 if it gets delayed, n that i wont pay for it again ( yea.. i had to pay that last year..) he said no problem n he'll take care of it n dont worry n all those crap!!
in d end, he obviously delayed it, n he said I WILL have to pay d penalty! like hell i will... when i told him i wont, he stopped answering my calls...n he even had d nerve to tell me that it wasnt his work at all, n he was just doing me a fav!! i decided that he had to learn his lesson!!! i had to call up his partner in malaysia ( these fellows work with partners all over d place...), n i had to call up a few other ppl.. as if that wasnt enough.. my mum had to interfere as well... n finally he agreed to pay.. n that too he didnt tell me himself.. he made his staff tell me.. well, it didnt matter who told.. wat i wanted was for him to pay for his own delay n carelessness n i got it! hah... he asked for it!!!
so, today i had to go to d FRO with this staff guy ( John ), cos i had to sign a few documents... n believe me i had a tough time with this John guy! he's d heights of Blurness!!!! how can anyone be like that?!! he didnt know wat i or even he was talking about at all!! i asked him how long he'll take to reach d office..n he says he'll pay d penalty! i ask him wat next n he tells me wat d time is!!!!
as if that wasnt enough to handle.. i had to pay bribe to those lazy asses who warm their seats for no reason at all!! d penalty was already paid for in d bank for d delay... n y d hell do these ppl want money for!! arent they being paid by d government to come to an office, sit there, n gossip about everything under d sun, n eat n snore n God knows for wat else??!!! n yet they want some more money to give me d documents that i rightfully deserve!!!
while i was standing there, that idiotic officer told john in Kannada ( d local dialect here ) that i have to give him some money, n i have to keep it in d passport n give it to him!n he's telling John to tell me about it! ( as if i dont understand their dirty language n tactics!!)
D penalty was USD30 ( which was already paid in d bank ) n this shameless officer wanted more than USD20 for himself!!!!!! can u believe it!!! 1st of all he so daringly asks for bribe n on top of that he has d nerve to demand for so much!! that did it! i got so wild i said i refuse to give him any money at all!! i've given them some money last year when i had to get this thing done.. but they didnt demand for it.. i gave watever i wanted to! but this time.. this idiot asked for so much!! i wanted to protest so badly! but John tried his best to shut me up.. saying that i wont get d documents that i have to..! then i had no choice at all... but i still refused to give him d amount that he asked for ( RS1000).. i gave him RS600...which John kept inside d passport together with d other documents...
that officer took d money, counted, n asked y there was lesser than how much he asked for!!! how much lower can he stoop!!?? but i guess he doesnt have even one tiny bit of guilt for asking money in d 1st place.. cos if he did... he wouldnt have asked at all!!!n he even said that it was ok n this time he'll adjust after john told him that i was a student that i didnt know n bla bla bla...
n i wasnt d only one who was having a problem! one girl missed her flight back home to her country, another old man was sent up n down n in n out of d office so many times that he fell sick, another man lost his temper cos he was being made to bring so many unnecessary documents n he wasnt even told in advance about everything, another lady had to spend d whole day there with her very young children, another old couple where made to wait d whole morning....all this for one simple reason..they refused to pay d bribe that was asked for!
AARRGGHH!!! it was so annoying!! y cant anyone he honest in their life! y is it so difficult to be honest n to obey laws n rule n regulations! if no one wants to follow it, then y d hell bother making it up!!! john said that those fools must have had to pay a large sum of money to get those jobs... n this is d only way they can earn everything n pay back their loan. if they cant afford it, then y bother trying to get it??!! n which idiot was d one who started making money from giving a government job!!??
Lord!!! this country is so full of all this nonsense! its not like this sort of thing doesnt happen anywhere else in d world.. of course it does! but there's always a limit to everything n most of d other countries' citizens have at least a tiny little bit of fear for the Lord n their laws.. !
if only God gave me one wish.. that would be for Indians to change have a honest heart... but i doubt God Himself will be able to do that.. if man is not willing to change!
