Now because of Murphy's Law, I am in group 3. This group ranges from the sinple needs like mine (I just need the visa placed into my passport), the the ridiculously complex (an obscenely obese man who wants to register his mail order bride and can't understand their reluctance when he doesn't even know her age).
But WTF, it isn't I don't have anything else to do.
