la bureaucratie nuit a votre santé.

February 21, 2007

today, i went to the préfecture (the offices of the french government; there’s one in each département, of which there are 100 in the country) in order to apply for my residency card.

apparently, it’s acceptible for them to make you wait four months for an appointment with an immigration officer. this means no bank account, no job, little chance of finding better accomodations.

rumour has it that, as a student, there are alternative channels of dealing with la république. for the love of god, i hope so.
