Re: Are all the people in the migration office cocky and rude?

What you guys think? was that guy rude or was it just me?
All my experiences with the Migrationsamt tell me that it's staffed by horses' hindquarters.

At one place I worked, we were working with the Migrationsamt to try and get a work permit for an American. The guy was rude, and then got tired of talking to us so he just hung up. Yeah.

And let's not forget that this is the office that was in the media a few years back because employees:
- were sending porn back and forth all day
- went out shopping (for themselves personally) on the clock
- were deliberately delaying some applicants' applications based simply on name/race/nationality

So yeah. I'm not surprised in the least. The Migrationsamt seems to attract the worst bureaucrats Switzerland has to offer. (This stands in stark contrast to nearly ever other government office I've had to deal with here, which are generally competent, flexible, and helpful.)
