Israeli Government Registration

Check out Huchma U'mussar for a sample of government run-around in Israel. Mine was alot worse, with me having to come back a month later to complete the process.

Miriam - so is the process finally completed, or are you still waiting "til next month"?

Miriam said...

Neat blog.
I am glad you registration process was completed. When I had to get my visa/registration in Japan I was so sick of government offices by the time I finished, I dread even going to the post office. :)

Having been to Japan twice, I will admit Japanese bureaucracy scares even me. I have only had to go through it when I worked for a Japanese company. I kept wanting Godzilla to come through and step on the building, followed by Mothra, and the other monsters.

Freddie -thanks! welcome to the blog! how interesting it must be in Japan. Can you speak Japanese?

Ehav - LOL . Japan, Ethiopia, Israel, USA, is there anywhere you haven't been?

Ehav Ever said...

When I was a kid learned French, but I stopped using it years ago. I can kind of read it. I learned a little bit of Japanese when I was 10. Just enough to get by. I wanted to relearn it, but that alphabet is just to daunting. At one time I was studying Amharic (Ethiopian) when I was in Ethiopia in 2001. Same problem 276 characters to remember is to many for me.

Okay so to what I do know. English, Hebrew, Aramaic, and I am learning Arabic.

In terms of working for a Japanese company. Yes, I now know what it must have been like to fight in the second Punic Wars. You travel all that way, use up all those resources only to have to come back with less than what you left with. The biggest problem wasn't dealing with the companies antics, it ws dealing with American company that let them get away with it, and forced more work on us.

I just noticed that the language question was for Miriam. Sorry.

Miriam said...

hi Freddie! Well I can speak a rudimentary French, which really needs brushing up. English i've got. Hebrew is also rudimentary.

I can assure you it's same old story with any government offices in any mediterrenean country. Try doing it in Italy. You'll wait in line for hours and big butchy women will cut you in line and claim they have the right to do that cause they know someone in that government office. lol.
