The time had come to update the passports.
(SHE is a dual citizen so needs two.)
Both expire about the same time.
Photos were taken last July and one renewed.
As there was no rush to get them, the other put off.
SHE arrived at the Post Office, with old passport, photos, application and of course, money.
Not having read the small print, missed the
'photos older than 6 months cannot be used as ID.'
The cut off date was two weeks ago.
As the photos were not much different from the 10-year-old
expired passport photo, SHE wasn't worried.
SHE had to have new photos taken because they were 2 weeks over the 6 month limit, to be put on the new 10-year passport!
Does anyone else see the craziness?
The new photos look just like the 6-month-two-week old photos
except for winter vs summer clothing and the amused look.
