    I have always been met by polite, courteous and efficient officers at the airport, both arriving and departing, and similar experiences at the bank. Always.

    You haven't been to any Govt institution specially nadra or any Govt hospital nurses or any Govt school teachers ....
    If you ever been to nadra you would find some of the most sadist people ever. They are half mental case and hate other people.
    They are really mad to the nth degree.

    I have been to NADRA. And they were very helpful, despite very difficult working circumstances. No bribes, and the paperwork was processed promptly. The same with PIA booking office, polite and prompt to a tee. And the post offices. And all the hospitals that I have visited, and I have many many times. And certain offices I shall not mention.

    I admit I have not been to any government school in a long time, though.

    As much as I criticize Pakistan, I must admit to all the good things there too.

    Next time when you go to nadra office to make id card, even executive offices too, ask the photo guy to take another photo because your first photo is with half closed eyes, he would show you the traditional behaviour of Govt workers..
    Anyways I always thought you are some foreigner white American

    Actually, he retook the photo a few times just to get an acceptable one, but he could only do so much with my ugly mug. :D

    That may be so, but it may have something to do with how arrogantly many expats choose to behave while in Pakistan. That never goes down well. Politeness begets politeness. And most people I have met there have been very helpful, to a fault.
