Red face Dear Record Breakers..!

Dear Record-Breakers

My AOS appointment was given to me with 20 minutes notice!! - is this a world record??

The appointment letter hadnt arrived so i made an Infopass appointment back in May, and was told the letter had been sent (they had forgot to include my Apt # so it never arrived!!), and was told the interview was in 20 mins!! Yep - my Infopass was 8:10, and AOS was 8:30!

My wife worked down the road and appeared within 10 minutes of me frantically calling her and begging her to abandon her colleagues.. we didnt have any of our stuff with us but he said we were fine after a 20 minute very pleasant chat, but he told me to come back with my papers (which you bet i did!), and walked out later that day stamped with me 551!!!

I know this was a couple months back, but just thought i'd share.. i still lose sleep over it! LOL

They sure did suck, but maybe not as bad as an African gameshow that was shown on one of Dennis Nordons BBC specials. The star prize on one show was 'Some bars of soap!' LOL.. Jeez,the anticipation.. the excitement!!
