You know there’s a problem when…

You return to the Consulate General of India with a complete list of documents as instructed by the staff person the day before. She gives you a smile of recognition and says, “Let me check if the officer will accept these documents and issue the attestation.”

You respond: “I was here yesterday and you confirmed with the officer that these are the documents he requires.”

The staff person says: “Different officer today.”
