“The secret of success is sincerity.”

Lately dealing with lot of government officials and this is not of one country and hence I cannot generalize any comment on any particular country but yes it seems I am coming to a conclusion to agree the generalized statement that is said about government services in all countries 😉

“A government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.” ~ Ayn Rand

I always have this confidence getting things done with government when I am present in person to handle it. But then how often can you do this kind of visits?

It is very inconvenience when someone doesn’t do their do-diligences and sends your documents back saying something is incomplete, without noticing that what they are asking for is already enclosed.

“What we hope ever to do with ease, we must learn first to do with diligence.” ~ Samuel Johnson

It is very frustrating, because for such things you are not sure even if you resend the entire set of documents what is the assurance that this time again the officials due to their ignorance will return the document?

“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment” ~ Dale Carnegie

Some times I believe privatization of services is beneficial than having it with government officials not that I am against anything or prejudiced but then such kind of ignorance is not expected and everyone has the fear to risk their job.

“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” ~ Douglas Adams

It is quite frustrating, when you want to take it all on the so called government official proving that its error on their part.

When things will change, for a change? 😀 and why government services has to be as they are known to be?

“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion . . . . I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.”

  1. See, I have kept my promise in your honor. So, go and check :):):).Government is the necessary evil. It is the worst experience you can have in dealing with them. But at the same time, if they are not her, we would have dictators and monarchy and chomplete anarchy!!!…

  2. Privitization will really help, but it again shouldn’t create monopoly.I thought, only in developeing countries, the goverment related affairs are in mess. Surprised to know that it is universal problem. Hope the issue is resolved by now.I have always had bad experience with these govt related works. It took really 10 years for me to obtain a driving license and was hesitant to go over the tedious process of waiting, the eye-wash test etc. Only when it came to relocation I took it. May be I’m too cynical about these govt ppl, for I have had more experience with these guys in my previous business.

  3. I love ayn rand! so nice u quoted.. is that from fountainhead? The only book I’ve read… Yes, its very frustrating to engage with government officials and offices… I think they’re especially inefficient cause they aren’t paid as well as private sectors 😉 so they’re frustrated too… this is in ref to India
