they are so retard

My colleague planned for a short trip to UK next week to attend his sister graduation. He took the morning off and went to the embassy to apply for a visa. Apparently he underestimated the paper-hassle of getting a visa. What was initially thought to be some formality process that could easily be accomplished within 30 minutes turned up to be a couple of days affair.

He didn’t get the visa instantly instead had to bring back papers and forms that need to be fill-up and submitted. And on top of that, there were some ludicrous requirement for papers that needed to be submitted to substantiate the application. He was bitching on all form and questionnaires that he had to answers, and I swear to god, these are the exact quotes of some of the questionnaires. 

Quotes

4.15 Have you ever been concerned in the commission, preparation, organisation or support of acts of terrorism, either within or outside the United Kingdom, or have you ever been a member of an organisation which has been involved in or advocated terrorism in furtherance of its aims? Yes/No, If you have answered yes to any of the questions, please give details overleaf.

4.16 Have you ever been concerned in the commission, preparation or organisation of genocide or crimes, including crimes against humanity and war crimes, committed in the course of armed conflict? Yes/No. If you have answered yes to any of the questions, please give details overleaf.

I mean, how bizarre could that be, asking applicant whether he or she is involved or advocate terrorism or has he or she been a member of an organization that support terrorisms (if yes, please elaborate in additional sheet…)….sheesh….how stupid!
