Well, I suppose it had to happen sooner or later and sooner rather than later was more likely.
I asked my colleague if she thought it was possible to do this by telephone or online. She did her best to not laugh. Obviously, siamo in Italia (we are in Italy) and there is no hope on this earth that something as simple as a phone call or online thing is possible. TBH, I knew that to be the case but one should always live in hope.
So, once again I am stepping into the dark, foreboding abyss that is Italian Bureaucracy. And, let me tell you, I’m not looking forward to it. No, not a bit.
It will take time (my golden rule being that, in order to do anything here, you need to visit an office a minimum of two times) and it will be hassle.
Also, in my case, it could mean obtaining some other documentation first, so doubling or quadrupling the amount of visits (and time).
Can I just say …….. shit, shit, shit and bloody shit!
