my passport story
I'm sure you've heard all the stink about passports and how people aren't getting them back in time for their trips abroad. i didn't really pay much attention to it because i have a passport. every time i heard another sad passport story, i would think: thank god i don't have to deal with that.
apparently passports expire after 10 years, and mine expired a year ago.
I might get the chance to go abroad next month, so I ordered a new passport. I'd heard it could take months to get it back, so i chose to expedite.
total to expedite: 127.00
photo from walgreens: 7.00
priority mail: 4.00? (can't remember the exact amount.)
without overnighting either way, I received my new passport in exactly 11 days.
