On July 8, I applied for my passport (finally!) at my local post office. The clerk there said it would arrive by Priority Mail within 21 days, but then added, “They only tell us to say that. It usually doesn’t take that long.”
Well, it’s obviously been more than 21 days now (though not by much) and still no passport in my mailbox. So, American Dopers, in your past experience, how long did it take to receive the passport after completing the application process?
