I had my passport renewed today. The lovely lady at the passport center apent a lot of time before she was happy with the new biometric photo. Chin up, tilt to the left and instead of looking natural she took a photograph which…well I have seen sex offender photos which look better.
It’s not enough that government functionaries destroy your soul with endless paperwork to get a single document renewed (yes I have travelled before, that’s why I have a passport. No I am not currently an under trial prisoner) but they must clobber your self image as well.
