gah!

He answered back! The incompetent jerk answered back! 'taking issue' with my complaint (mind you I'm willing to wager he spend more time on the email than he did on the actual phone call). Not only was he an incompetent jerk, but it turns out he never even gave me the right information, because I DON'T need an emergency Australian passport (mine's sort of expired) but I CAN get an online travel visa - at half the price - using my French passport (my parents found some more competent people to speak with in Australia). The incompetent jerk told me I couldn't get a visa using my French passport. What an incompetent jerk!
(You know, part of me wants to answer back again, but partly I'm worried that it will degenerate into some immature slander match, and partly I'm afraid that they can get me blacklisted or something. My email address doesn't exactly do much to hide my identity. And it's not like I can take my business elsewhere - except maybe to the New Zealand embassy)

You should answer back, though, now that you have proof he's an incompetent jerk...

Oh, I will...I will...when I've left the country :D
And have a new passport valid for 10 years.
Which I will get in Australia.
Not at the stupid embassy.
What cheek! He even criticized me for 'insisting I type in the address while on the phone rather than write it down' - which is apparently 'quicker'. Is he like, 12 or something?
Still, there's nothing like a bit of justified rage to get me in a good mood...

quicker to write it down? So, the guy is an incompetent typist as well? what a putz. Don't you just love it when they spend eight times as much time ignoring you as it would take just to listen and answer your actual question? hrmph...
