So incredibly funny but so sooo true!!

This is an actual letter sent to the DFAT (Department of  Foreign Affairs and Trade) Immigration Minister. 

The Commonwealth Government tried desperately to censure the author, but got nowhere because every legal person who read it nearly wet themselves laughing!
Dear Mr. Minister,  I’m in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.

How is it that K-Mart has my address and telephone number, and knows that I bought a television set and golf clubs from them back in 1997,  and yet the Federal  Government is still asking me where I was  born and on what  date?

For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand? My birth date you have in  my Medicare information, and it is on all the income tax forms I’ve filed for the past 40 years.
It is also on my driver’s  licence, on the last eight passports I’ve ever had, on all  those stupid customs declaration forms I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off planes over the past  30 years. It’s also on all those insufferable census forms that I’ve filled out every 5 years since 1966.
Also…  would  somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Audrey, my father’s name is Jack, and I’d be absolutely fucking astounded if that ever changed between now and  when I drop dead!!!…
SHIT!  What do you  people do with all this information we keep having to  provide??  I apologise, Mr.  Minister.  But I’m really pissed off this morning.  Between you and me, I’ve had enough of all this bullshit! You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my fucking address!!   What the hell is going on with your mob?  Have you got a gang of  mindless Neanderthal arseholes working there!
And another thing, look at  my damn picture…  Do I look like Bin Laden? I just want to go to New  Zealand and see my new granddaughter.
(Yes, my son interbred with a Kiwi girl). And would someone please tell me, why would you give a shit whether or not I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days?   In the unlikely event I ever got the urge to do something weird to a sheep or a horse, believe you me, I’d sure as hell not want to tell anyone!
Well, I have  to go now, ‘ cause I have to go to the other end of the city, and  get another fucking copy of my birth certificate – and to part with another $80 for the privilege  of accessing MY OWN INFORMATION!  Would it be so  complicated to have all the services in the same spot, to assist in  the issuance of a new passport on the same day??  Nooooo..   that’d be too fucking easy and makes far too much  sense.

You would much prefer to  have us running all over the place like chickens with our fucking heads cut off, and then having to find some ‘ high-society ‘wanker’ to confirm me in a  photo. You know the photo… the one where we’re not allowed to smile?!  ….. You fucking morons.

Signed – An Irate  Australian Citizen.
P.S. Remember what I said  above about the picture, and getting me  identified….  Well, my  family has been in this country since before 1850!  In 1856, one of my forefathers took up arms with Peter Lalor. (You do remember the Eureka  Stockade!!) I have also served in both the CMF and regular Army for something over 30 years (I went to Vietnam in 1967), and still have high security clearances. I’m also a personal friend of the president of the RSL… and Lt General  Peter Cosgrove sends me a Christmas card each  year.  However, your rules require that I have to get someone “important”  to verify who I am; you  know… someone like my doctor – WHO WAS  BORN  AND RAISED IN FUCKING  PAKISTAN!!!…..  a country where they  either assassinate or hang their  ex-Prime Ministers – and are suspended from the Commonwealth for not having the “right sort of government”.
