I had never filled a departure form in the USA. I have been visiting the country since the early 90s.

"I made eggs"

 

 

 

Nope, you didn't, a hen did. 

 

 

So, if a hen made eggs, what made the hen?

Filling endless Departure and Arrival cards when I fly.

 

My passport is electronic. You know when I left and you know when I arrived. Making me get out a pen and write pointless details about what I did when I visited your country, my flight number, my passport number etc is just +#$%@@@ annoying.

 

You don't check anyway - last time I left Australia I put my profession down as 'Circus Clown'.....

 

Find an electronic way to deal with this - such as having the questions on the screen at Smartgate, an app - or even on the screen in the plane seat. It's 2016....!!!!

 

 

Plus one (the button has disappeared for some reason). 

 

You did commit a crime by filling the form inaccurately.  I'm not sure I'd be so brave to lie on immigration forms. Even though it is an obvious joke .

Onerous if the pen is in one place, the passport another etc.

Also pointless. To still be using bits of paper in this way in 2016 is just bonkers.

When you send someone on GZ a PM thinking you might possibly be doing them a favour by suggesting something they might be interested in - and it doesn't even warrant an acknowledgment.
