Character Confirmation

Posted by:

I have been accused of being a character & now it is confirmed.  A few days ago I had yet another new experience that comes with my current occupation.  I had to have a Character Check completed in order to obtain a permit needed for one of my responsibilities.  This required multiple trips to the police station to fill out forms, answer questions and be finger printed.  Anyway, after all 10 fingers and both palms were liberally covered in ink and the prints taken the officer was very appoligetic & said in English, “Sorry, I dont have any way for you to clean your hands.”  No towels or water were available.  Fortunately I had been tipped off by a co-worker beforehand & I had brought a handi-wipe with me.  The officer was impressed.  Just another ordinary day in PNG – pretty funny what you get used to!
