When things get worse, I take comfort in knowing they can only get better.
Back in 80's I spent a few years in the 'Forces.
At one point my "job" required a new or upgraded security clearance...
I couldn't start "the job" until said clearance had been authorized....
I had to sit through a interview and I assumed while waiting there was some sort of investigation being done.
One day I get called in to "clear up" some issues with my interview..
They seemed to be overly concerned with information related to my dear old dad's background.
"You said your father was born in Berlin...?"
"Yes, that's right..."
"East or West?"
"You're father, was he born in East or West Berlin?"
"Uhhhh... He was born in1934".
"Yes, but where exactly?"
"Yes... we can't proceed until we get clear up these details".
"My dad was born in 1934... You guys should read a book or something... This is weird"
"So you're not sure...?"
"I'm not sure about this whole thing now...lol. AFAIK there was no East/West in 1934"
Anyway... interview ended and a couple weeks later my clearance was upgraded for the new gig.
I never saw that interview guy ever again though...
Make counter accusations...
"I'm not sure about this whole thing now...lol. AFAIK there was no East/West Berlin in 1934"
Sure there was. Just like there is > East/West Vancouver.
