Bloody Bureaucracry! Part II!

After an hour and a half in the local registry, I was told I need a certificate with my full name, unfortuntely, it appears that in Canada, you don't keep you mother's surname, while in Spain your name has your both your parents surname...
My mother wouldn't be too happy if I got rid of her surname, and I wouldn't feel right doing so. Hopefully my Baptism Certificate has my "full" name, although I doubt it since I baptized in Canada...
They said I should go to *ominous thunder* CENTRAL REGISTRY OFFICE! That is the real deal! You could spend the whole day there, but I doubt they have my full name...
I guess I'll keep this name after all...
After that I had to go to the Police Office to order a new ID card before it expired, but that was almost enjoyable compared to the registry...
I'm definitely going to think about what to do next, but there is no way I'm going to the Central Registry Office tomorrow, or this week even! I'd go bonkers!
That's awful. How long are your ID cards good for? Maybe if you keep working on this, you can get it all worked out long before you need to do your next card. And then you can do it at your own pace, too, and not have to worry about a deadline.
Is your translated name is really terrible? :)
And I imagine working with your dad would be a lot of stress. I love my dad, but I could never work with him.
Anyway lots of luck!!!
ID cards are valid for 5 years, so I would have more than enough time..
My translated name isn't bad, it's just not my name, I am Michael, and NOBODY ever calls me Miguel. Actually it's Jan Michael and it's translated as Juan Miguel, but nobody uses the Jan part...
Which reminds me, the Baptism Certificate says the same as the Birth Certificate, so I may have to change my name to get it back, but frankly I don't think it's worth the effort...
Whatever I'm going to do it's going to wait, with this heat wave there is no way I'm spending the whole day in a stuffy and poorly ventilated office...
You know, I'm pretty sure the reason I'm starting to hate meat is because of my job in his butcher shop...
