Yeah, yeah, yeah. This is a straw man argument. Your comic makes a different point. That is someone not knowing what they want when they had time to decide. That is kind of like every woman in line to pay for something, and then when they get to the register, somehow shocked that a form of payment is required and then finally going into their purse to pull out the check book and taking forever at the register. I agree with you on that, people who don't know what they want, and women in check out lines, they belong in the ketchup room of hell.

Only in the DR does the representative from the water company laugh when you ask why the water is not supplied all of the time.

You are mad, because the bank took the necessary safety measures to verify your identity, to give your card to you, and not to someone who might have copied your passport?
Man that sucks, I bet you get really mad too, when they ask you for an ID when using your Credit Card, just to verify is you using the Credit Card and not someone else.

Sucks big time.
You muggs on message boards crack me up. Mostly how some of you conjure up contrived characteristics or feelings of what you think someones state of mind is. I have a saying. You can only think in one head. Just because your head is full of negativity , salivating for the opp to attack someone, with the need to distort facts/details within someones post , doesnt mean someone else has to embrace it as theirs. Bottom line my identity was confirmed without the need for an original passport.

Then when you identity gets robbed and someone else uses your card and spent all your money, I'll see the usual post here on DR1 how bad the country is, and why you are leaving.
I'm glad I can get a laugh out of you.

I agree that the bank should take the proper ID, and I'm sure that you remember a bank teller much more than they remember you as they see a lot more people, but I'm never ID'd when I use a credit card, and that would annoy me. Only shady looking people are ID'd for credit cards ;).
I think we all agree a bank should request proper ID in general. No dispute there. However in some cases verification can be obtained by the rep you have been personally dealing with. I dont mean a teller. I mean one of the business reps you have been dealing with for that week, that has your file right behind them in a drawer at the bank with all of your paperwork. A copy of your passport will match the copy of the original they have in their file. Moreover, if they gave you a temporary debit card and the rep youve been dealing with calls you in to swap out for the original why would there be a need to verify your identity only with an original passport? If it really was needed then they would have insisted I go home to get it. It wasnt needed. The overall point is, sometimes people do things out of habit rather than use common sense, and it's up to us as individuals to speak up for ourselves. Dealing with a business or dining out. If I were stepping up to a teller I would expect to produce my original passport even if that teller has helped me dozens of times. But I wouldnt expect it to be necessary to produce an original passport with a service rep that has my file handy, has tended to me a few times in the week, and calls me in to swap out a debit card. BTW, When I use my debit card at Super Pola they ask for ID. I show them a laminated photocopy of my US drivers license. Since that isnt my original passport how much ID verification protection are they providing, not much?

In the meantime, what will you be doing when my identity never gets robbed or none of my money gets spent? And I continue to enjoy life in the DR while freely expressing my opinion of its quirks. Can you handle that, Will you handle that?

Agreed, DV8. If you want food cooked and presented exactly to your own special requirements, isn't it better to cook it yourself at home? Many chefs would be offended if you tell them how to prepare a dish.
In the example I shared which seemed to prompt DV8s post , it was about a pasta dish. I ordered pasta with chicken, and it came loaded with pork meat also. I dont eat pork, and would get sick from it. A week prior I had ordered the same dish and it only had the chicken I requested. So why would the only resolution be that a person cook it themselves instead of simply asking for what you ordered? Nothing special about what I asked. Just asking for what you want gets results without hesitation or drama. And it doesnt take 5 minutes or any long explanation to do so.

Can any one tell me why my lady uses my Expensive Knifes for can openers no matter how many times I tell her don't use them for a can opener. LOL after she destroys my knife she looks at me like she did nothing wrong and its my fault.... I'm going to start put can openers on the table and tell her cut her food . See how that's works out for her.
Maybe she will get it then.... Only in Dr -CAPAMERICA

Your story is amusing but this thread is supposed to be for new member introductions. Take a can opener and put it in a fancy box wrapped with a bow and give it to her as a gift. Make a big deal out of it and when she opens it she will not be happy but maybe she will get the point. It will be difficult to break her of this habit. It's in her DNA. Good luck.
