the following was written by a friend of mine, however I'm sure that some of you can relate to this, and have had similar conversations.
[At the airport talking to a Customs Officer]
Officer: what is your reason for coming to Cancun?
Girl: Visiting my friend
Officer: where does she live?
Girl: in Massachusetts
Officer: so why are you HERE?
Girl: We are on summer break, so we're meeting here
Officer: But where do you live?
Officer: So why does your permanent address say Toronto?
Girl: My mom lives there.
Officer: Then where did you meet your friend who you are visiting?
Girl: In Tunisia
Officer: ? What were you doing there?
Officer: Is that where you're from?
Girl: No. I just lived there. I'm from Rwanda Uganda and Congo.
Officer: How can you be from 3 places? Ok, where were you born?
Girl: Ivory Coast.
Officer: .....ok fine, never mind, just.... go.
