Now you know, I don't like to complain. However, I feel that I would be remiss if I didn't bring this important issue to your attention. It seems that your workers are not really doing their job and you might need to counsel them. Although you know that I don't like to point fingers, BUT, even though I have left my car parked in the parking lot for DAYS now, NOBODY has put gas into it, cleaned it, or checked the oil.
Also, I submitted a work order for this hotel room we're living in, and, to date, nobody has shown up with the extra garbage can or battery for the remote. Now normally, I would just suffer in silence, however, I really don't think we should start out on a bad foot in our new location; Washington, DC.
Although it would have been nice if you guys had explained that we were going to have to now find and then PAY for our housing, I can understand why you would want me to find my own place after you issued me a house with no closets in Khartoum. Naturally, I will be submitting my accounting for reimbursement soonest. I'd appreciate it if you would process that quickly. Everyone is making us actually PAY for things here. I'm not sure when this procedure was implemented, but it's clearly going to be an accounting nightmare for all of us.
And finally, Josh received a parking ticket yesterday. Someone should really send us those diplomatic license plates soonest. Although it is obviously not my area of expertise, I would think that it would be easier for us to just avoid being issued the ticket(s), rather than for you guys to contact the host government to explain why we shouldn't have to pay them. You should also know that the local law enforcement here does not seem to respect my diplomatic passport. The man rudely stated that I no longer have diplomatic status because I'm in Virginia. This cannot possibly be right.
Don't they know who I think I am??
Anyway, the car is still in the parking lot and I'm running out of gas. As it is obvious that I have now lost the ability to care for myself, and since you guys were basically my enablers for the last year, I think it would be in everybody's best interest if you just continued with your duties while I am posted here.
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
