passport stress

update below

So, a while ago I sent away my passport and marriage licence so that my name could be updated.

Right. So we leave in a week and my passport has not returned yet.

Last night I was on hold for 45 minutes before giving up.

Now I’m in a conference room with the phone on speaker hoping that I don’t fall asleep to Vivaldi … and really starting to worry about where my passport is…

After ONLY 10 minutes on hold, it was confirmed that my passport will be mailed today. I asked what to do if it was, say Monday, and I didn’t have it. He said, “PANIC”. No, really, he did say that, and I should call them so we can discuss what to do. (is this a cv”s or a ka”h situation? I always get that wrong)
