Ya don't have to be a jerk!


I know that the people at the USCIS offices probably deal with a bunch of ignorant idiots at work every day. Not to mention the fact that most of them speak crappy English. But, you know, when a very polite, intelligent American citizen calls you on the phone and asks you a simple question.... the least you could do is be polite back! When we first appliled for our 171H I called this office to confirm something before I sent in the paperwork and (pretty sure it was the same guy) I got a rude ass guy who was just a big JERK! First, let me tell you, the phone number for this office is not highly publicised. I had to do some real research to get the phone number. So maybe it is not convenient for a reason! But still.... Today I call to confirm the process for renewing this thing since I have heard so many people say that they just showed up with their renewal application, payment and homestudy update in their hands and got fingerprinted that day while turning in the stuff. I wanted to see if I could also do that (to save some time). Well, Mr. Jerk-o answered the phone again and was being all pissy with me. So - I cannot take the easy route for this process according to him. I have to mail in my application, full payment of $685, a notarized original of our homestudy and the notarized homestudy update. Then they will call us for a fingerprinting appt. Just like the other application never happened!
This man was a complete ass and I about told him so. Freaking jerk! If you don't like your job then QUIT! Don't keep making people's lives miserable by your sucky attitude!
This post is in reference to the KANSAS CITY DISTRICT OFFICE. (so if any of you have similar complaints I would love to hear them!!!!)
P.S. their phone number is: 816-891-8352 - just wanted everyone to know so this phone number isn't so secret any more!!!!!

Yep, those folks are none to happy to deal with us adopting losers. I think that is the biggest chuckle of the day, to see their "secret" phone number splattered across blogland. I've got Florida's, I passed it out to a fellow adoptive mom who called and got blasted that it wasn't a public number. If they piss me off this time around, I'll put it right out there as well! Thanks for the big chuckle!

That is rotten that you were treated that way. Our experience was so pleasant.

I love it how you posted their phone number! You should post it in a bathroom stall and say "For a good time, call me at 816-891-8352" OK...evil Valeri is being nasty....sorry! Hee hee
