East of the Sun, West of the Moon

When the USCIS (formerly known as the INS, which causes some schizophrenia as some forms, letterheads, stamps, etc, still use the old name) requests that you provide them with three passport-sized photos, they really mean three, not two, as you might hear or read elsewhere, even on their own website.

Thankfully they were fairly nice about it and dealt with everything else while handing me an envelope in which to send the extra photo(s) once I get those, just as they didn’t force me to make a new appointment after I arrived 10 minutes late (damn detour in Kansas City plus I took a wrong turn getting there). Considering they allocate 15-minute slots I wouldn’t have been totally surprised if that had happened but thankfully my dealing with them today was mostly a formality. That could’ve sucked as it is a 2-2.5 hour drive to get there.
