How much more freedoms does America have in metric than the Country of Europe?
I'm betting it's like 17 million.
Remember entering New York State on foot from Canada years and years ago and having to pay a fee for getting my passport stamped, my first thought was: "America the land where nothing is free."
A thought that was validated a few minutes later when I went to withdraw some American pesos from an ATM and had to pay a fee for using an ATM for the first time in my life.
Truth is stranger than fiction; you can't make shit like that up.
Are you fucking Romanian or something? Wash up on Canadian shores?
I can see how it might be quite jarring for someone coming from a repressive backwater like Canada when they realize our freedoms isn't free, but I'm sure you discovered quite quickly that it's well worth the modest cost. Just think of the cost of the visa as paying rent to borrow our 17,000,000 (in metric) freedoms. Doesn't seem so outrageous now, does it?
As for the ATM fees. I'm sorry you had to pay for that, especially the first time. It should really be with someone special.
If he were a real American and had served in the military he would be free from ATM fees through his USAA bank account. But he is not. He is Canadian.
He's not Canadian. How do I know this? Because "years and years ago" I would cross the Canadian/US border 3-10 times a week...using my driver's license. Even today, with heightened security, not a single fucking Canadian passport gets stamped crossing into the US let alone someone getting charged for it.
Spamination on Aisle 5 please.
When I was growing up the only people had to pay fees for services were the Dutchs (old racial prejudices still in force).
Or have a previous generation serve and pass it along to you, thus allowing you to reap the benefits without ever paying the attendant dues. That's the America I know and love!
Sorry, Piob, but impersonating a Canadian isn't a bannable offense here on SF.
It damn well should be. I'm going to ask Fok about this one!
Students have been e-mailing me their term papers ain't even kidding when I tell you that half of them have forgotten to attach the attachment.
