Aaarrrgh! Again!!
I'm getting so very sick of this! >.<

For the past, like, three weeks I've been trying to help Blue get her papers and stuff ready so that she can get a passport. As everyone knows, AC is only two months away, and getting over the border lately has been nothing but a BITCH. And with Bluey having no ID other than a birth certificate, the group of us driving to Philly didn't want to take any chances that someone may get denied. Hence the getting her a passport thing, just to be on the safe side.

Now, this would be SO much f*cking easier if she didn't live in bloody hick-ville. I'm not saying that's her fault, it's just frustrating because we are no closer to getting her passport than we were two weeks ago. The plan was that she come down for the weekend, we find people who've known her for two or more years so that they can verify her identity and sign her papers, get her dog her shots in the meantime, and then head over to the Passport office on a weekday so that we can hand in the stuff in person, because it's quicker and safer than doing it by mail.

Except that for the past three weekends, Blue hasn't been able to get any of the Monday's off work, like she wanted to, for reasons of people either scheduling her, or other people taking the same day off before she can get to the book-off book. This is such a load of bull. I hate her work. >.< I don't understand why she can't just go to them and say, "Look, I NEED this Monday off, because I have to go into the city to hand in passport papers." It's IMPORTANT! O.o It's ONE bloody day of the week that she needs, that's all!

And meanwhile she's getting mad at ME for this whole thing, telling me we should have just done it by mail three weekends ago. And you know, she's probably right, but I kept on waiting because she kept telling me that she would get the next Monday off. And then the next Monday off. Not to mention doing it by person is safer and faster, because she has to hand in her original birth certificate if we do it by mail, which means if for SOME reason she DOESN'T get her passport mailed back to her in time, she'll be screwed for ANY type of ID at the border. I am TRYING to do this for her, but sometimes I think she either forgets that, or just doesn't care. >.<

And so here we are three bloody weekends later, and now the only day off she has is Wednesday. I asked her if she was going to come back on Wed then, and she gets mad again, saying that it costs her money to come over every weekend that she doesn't have. _I'm_ not the one who told her to come three weekends in a row, for nothing! I expected that we'd actually get some WORK done! O.o But so far, the only one doing any work is ME. I ran around and found the people she needed to sign her papers. I've been taking care of her dog for the past two weeks, and I got her shots done today as well. All I ask is that she get ONE weekday off so that we can just do this and get it over with. And she gets mad at me for it. >.<

Never mind the fact that she's out, RIGHT now hanging with friends, planning on getting tattoos and a freakin’ tongue piercing, (with all the money she claims she doesn't have) and then she'll spend the rest of the weekend sitting in my room complaining about how bored she is, and how she came all this way and we're not going out and doing anything. *smirks*

Oh yeah, and she brought Jay with her again. Now, the first weekend she came over she brought Jay without telling me. It's like, um... thanks, don't tell me you're bringing other company or anything. But I let it slide, since he's like the only new friend she has in Stouffville. But now he's going to be spending the weekend again. *flattens her ears and frowns* I have nothing against the guy, he's really nice. But I'm already pissy about having to cram people in my room as it is. I'm very particular about my space and privacy, so the fact that she's dragged him over a SECOND time without asking me first kind of annoys me a great deal.

This WHOLE thing is just pissing me off, and sometimes I wonder why I try to do nice things for my friends, when all they do is just get pissy with me for it. Gods know I love Bluey. She's been my best friend going on eight years now. But I swear to all that is sensible, at times I just wanna boot her in the head. >.<

EDIT:

Okay... Blue is over now, and we are going to hand in the passport papers NEXT Monday, for SURE! She already has the day booked off. I will kill her if this doesn't happen again. O.

Remind me, if I ever decide to procrastinate, to harass you and my wife to get angry at me.

I've had similar issues with Ferris.. seems like I'm always taking up the slack for him on certain things, like his AC paperwork.. filling out his tax forms and stuff. I've showed him, many times, how to do it himself, and he always procrastinates and eventually, when the tax people start calling, I end up doing it for him. That'll change soon enough, since we won't be living together any more.. he'll have to deal with it himself and, really. Sometimes the best help you can give a friend is to let them deal with their problems themself.. encourage and advise, if asked.. but let them succeed or fail on their own. Otherwise they never learn to stop procrastinating and how to fix things if they screw up...

So perhaps you should wash your hands of the passport matter.. it sounds like you've done your best to help but it's just not coming together, which is stressing you. Let Blue handle it herself, or not if she decides not to.

*hugs n skritches 'hind your fuzzy wolfen ears* :)

Yeah, but the thing is, if she has no ID to present to the border come AC time, Chris (our driver) will not be going to AC, if Blue isn't able to go. And if we lose Chris, then Pat, Raptor and myself will be out of a ride to the con, and we can't all afford the bus. :/ So basically, if she screws around with the passport thing, she'll be screwing us out of attending AC as well. >.<

Hopefully though, things will finally be settled next week, as she for sure already has next Monday booked off. We are GOING to do this! O.o I will NOT let anything stand in my way of getting to AC!!

Ahhh... yes, that would make it more of a pressing matter, fershur. *urf* I hope you can get it sorted out next week.

What days will you be at AC? Qev and I will be, hopefully.. if he can get the time off, driving down on Friday and coming back on Sunday.
