French bureaucracy at its worst.

This morning (okay, this afternoon since I woke up at 1), I received a letter from the French health insurance office.  I FINALLY got my insurance card.  It has taken 7 months.  I mean really France? REALLY??!! Good thing I have been covered thanks to mon pere in the United States.  Otherwise, I could’ve been one sad, sick americaine.  Maybe if they didn’t spend so much time creating this high tech card (it has a memory chip and my face glued to the front) it would take less than 7 months to be processed.

I think I am feeling a bit under the weather and may need to make a trip to see my local medecin. I mean when in Rome…where the taxes are high and the prices for healthcare are low that is.
