Civil Service, My Foot

I placed an order for documents to a state department last Friday. Hand delivered. The order was accompanied by a cover letter requesting that we get a phone call when the material was ready, so we could send over a courier. We never got the call, and the package was shipped out. Yesterday. We have the package now, so it's fine. But I guess my cover letter was merely useful for showing off our letterhead.

The letter also requested certification, which the department doesn't do. So guess who gets to call the department's legal counsel to try to request it yet again? Why is this my province, and not the attorney who requested these documents, or his paralegal? *sigh*

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this.

Addendum: Had to leave a voicemail. Rats!
