I haave made a visa appointment in the Greek Embassy this month, before going there I still have few questions that I wanna ask ,after going through their website, I couldn't find any clear answers.
Initially I wrote an email, the replyI got was three words: Thanks For Contacting! That was a shock apparently, it was not those auto mails for confirming your email has been sent and all, It Was the Actual Answer! Ok, Now I try to call them, I think I've tried the number + 44 (20) 73135600 at least 100 times, and yet nobody ever answers it never!
Then I tried to call the press office, the lady give me 02073135623 to try, so I tried, so came the nightmare!
The woman who picked up the phone was SUCH A MANIAC! The question I asked was very direct, but all of sudden, she started to shout at me as loud as any Human Being Can Be! I seriously don't know why!My heart started pumping like crazy! I lost all my words and I was in disbelief! She sounded like she had this huge anger in her and she just took all out on me! I mean I didn't expect them to be nice or patient, but I definitely don't deserve to be shouted at! The experience was just traumatic! It was at 10 am I called her, I have to say that Crazy Bitch has ruined my day and my excitement toward Greece.
My neighbor is a very friendly Greek guy, before planning my trip to Greece, he suggested that I should not go to the Greek Embassy and told me that these staff are relatives of those important figures in Greek politics, so their jobs are very secured. He warned me that they might be incredibly rude and horrible, at that time I thought he was just being dramatic and subjective. Cos in my mind I still believe that those civil servants who represent their beautiful country can't be That Bad! But Man! It turns out he's absolutely right. According to him: 'they're people with no responsibility, no logic and no decency! they don't give a shit about if those tourists will boost our sucking economy or not, they're all bastards, how can you reason with bastards! Don't try to complain, I can assure you it won't help the least bit, no matter how badly they treat you, they'll still be able to work in the Embassy.â€™
I've now decided to ditch that appointment cos I just don't wanna disgust myself by talking to them or looking at their stupid and rude faces! My suggestion is that unless absolutely necessary, DO NOT GO OR CALL! It's just not worth doing it!
