FOLLOWING on from my earlier post about the Post Office, I was discussing the issue tonight with Craig, one of my oldest friends as well as the funniest person I know. He said he had recently used a Post Office branch to pre-approve his passport application. But when he showed his photo to the member of staff, he was told it probably wouldn’t be accepted because he was smiling in it.
“No I’m not, it’s a neutral expression.”
“No, you’re smiling, I can see your teeth. You shouldn’t be smiling.”
“Does it help that I’m crying on the inside?”
In the event his photo was approved.
