"Your Shipment...


Has been pulled aside by the US Government to be X-rayed.

We have no idea when you'll get it. We wish we could help you, but we can't. This is the US Government we're talking about. Don't even think about arguing.

And it will cost you more, payable to the good old US of A. Anywhere from 25 dollars to SEVEN HUNDRED."



Great.

They're going to charge us for used clothing, garage sale finds, and boxes of books that were too heavy to carry on the plane.

And let me guess, the container that has the refugees or the drugs or the guns or the counterfeit items? That one will sail right through...

Well, at least they're checking some of them.

Too bad the same doesn't happen for our elected representatives.

(But honestly, I don't want to know any more about that. Please, just lock him up forever and get those victims some serious therapy. And DON'T let it happen again. Ever. [shudder] )

I don't get how they can charge you more for x-raying your container of stuff, before they even know what's in it. If they didn't x-ray it, they wouldn't charge you customs fees?

Does it work the same in reverse, shipping things from here TO France?

Damn, that really sucks. It sux, even. What a shame.

Have you read Bill Bryson on dealing with representatives of US officialdom? It's very funny. In a "glad it's not me" kind of way...
