He can’t find it.

All the paperwork I put together for my Department of Revenue contact has magically disappeared.

We spoke briefly two days ago about the situation and I was assured that I’d receive a phone call back before the end of the day.

In all actuality I didn’t expect him to call me back so it was no surprise to me when he didn't.

No sweat, I’ll call him the next day and see what’s up.

Naturally he’s not in the office.

Alright, no worries--- I’ll try again tomorrow.

So I call today, leave a message and I receive a prompt phone call back.

“Hello, this is XXX from XXX’s office.”


“XXXX would like you to fax all of the information along with a cover letter to his attention so he can review the matter.”

“Ummm I already did that almost a month ago. Are you telling me that all of the documentation that I submitted was lost?”


Can you believe this shit?

I do the research, I fill out multiple freedom of information documentiation requests, I lay out the whole issue from beginning to end, I make the copies AND I walk it over to my contact’s office all for it to be lost?

Not only is it lost but it took a month to have enough time to tell me that you don’t have enough time to keep the paperwork I dug up safely tucked away.

My jaw just hit the floor.

By the way, I've been reading since Gapers Block posted your blog. I'm glad you don't take shit, and instead fight back. Though it definately appears that those of us that do fight have the worst uphill battle.

Well Pet my friend what can a sister do at this point?

I just have to gather everything together and resubmit it again.

Trust me I'm not happy but this situation needs to be resolved.
