My Dog ate my Visa…
Yes that’s right. That’s pretty much what happened.
Because I’m leaving the U.S.A. a lot earlier than my other classmates C.L.I., The Chinese Learning Institute, like the wonderful people that they are Fedex-ed my visa documents overnight with an attached application guide so I could go to the Chinese Embassy as soon as possible.
They did not foresee that the Fedex delivery man was afraid of my 9 month old puppy….Ok I’ve give the mailman pity points because my pup is 65 pounds
but C’MON MY VISA!!!!
MY VISA, MR. MAILMAN!!!
MY VISA, DOG!!! D:<
DOGGY RIPPED UP MY DOCUMENTS
Unfortunately I didn’t even find out about it until 3 days later when I can back from New Paltz. So I’m sure you can understand when my 65 lb terror was terrified of me. I called C.L.I. right away and told me that the documents couldn’t be saved because there were the official ones and I should just get a long tourist visa. I was distraught and really I didn’t know what to do without my student visa so 3 days later I chanced it. The documents looks kinda salvageable…sure there were bite marks and the corners were COMPLETELY torn off . I filled out a tourist visa like C.L.I. said but I made copies of the original documents, got copies from Christian Wilwohl, my study abroad adviser, and also filled out my student visa…with an apology letter written in English and Chinese attached…
AND MY STUDENT VISA CLEARED ;D
Now I just have to find a better method to hold my dog back when the delivery guys comes -_-
NOTE: I ended up tearing the head off the Fedex guy over the phone for throwing a package into a yard had a ‘BEWARE OF DOG’ sign…no regrets.
