The Rocket Boomed

简单说一下吧,不说也是不行的。本来订的9点半,由于对方效率低下10点20分排队进安检,拉门,走,安检,再拉门,走,再拉门,这就进去了。里面有个大厅,前面6个窗口,但是一面墙阻隔了大厅对于前3个窗口的视野。大厅前面有个液精电视在不停地播放中文电视版美国之音,以讨论国际要闻为主。我坐在最前排,有人说这样不好,说能听见拒签的盖章声。不过由于压力较大,我当时也没区分出“砰砰”是拒签的盖章声还是厕所的关门声。 交表,给的号是115,立刻参考中文同音论,还可以,总比114强。有好几个000号,让人摸不着头脑。别不信,最n的号是911,“Number nine eleven please go to counter three”众人大笑。 验指纹的时候看到那个所谓的韩国人,4(死)号韩国人,30出头,长相还是蛮友好的,不过看似他办事很认真,还是新来的,自然要求要严格一些;不难理解为何他是最难过的。传说中的金发女郎和黑人由于墙的缘故不幸无法用视野接触。等啊等,从10:30一直到12:00,号还是没有喊到;旁边的人数了下,韩国人一共拒签了6个。随后一句:“对不起,你们剩下这十来个先吃饭去吧,下午1点再来”。明明是9:30的预约,却无法上午完成,可见? 一晃下午一点了。又是安检,流程走过一遍熟悉多了。又是等,86,早着呢,87,恩,突然112,心跳,113,再心跳,过一会114,深呼吸,“115请到2号窗口”,confirm, ok, smile, confident, walk! 几步走上前去看到4号的韩国人,3号的金发女,心里一阵窃喜:黑人。我就知道得是黑人签我,昨天脑袋里想的一直也是黑人,结果果然就是黑人。The power of thoughts! 黑人是这里口碑最好的,办事干净利索,要求松,要签要不签都爽快,所以大家都希望能赶上黑人签。看到前面的红衣女郎用中文连连道谢,黑人用中文说不客气,信心更是大增。 到了窗口前,示意我是115(要要我),黑人随即把我的DS表拿来。黑人:What’s your name?我:Sirui Liu黑人:What is your name??我:Sirui Liu. O, 刘思锐。黑人:刘 思 锐,ok。(随即看了一眼我认为是提示的东西,顿了一下)Why are you going to the US?(如此基本的问题)我:I will go … Continue reading
