What is it with passports and us??

It's confirmed, it can't be that much of a coincidence. Our fate with passport fiascoes are well known in the circles but extending it to the maid who is going to join us is a bit much , don't you think ??
I was pleased as a punch That Naseema was arriving on Friday, i even cleaned her bathroom and went and arranged toiletries for her and THEN the fated call came though.The visas got through and she had her boarding pass and i thought we were set, so happily we bought and confirmed our Bali vacation.
It seems she did not have a the stamp reqd by BD immigration officials and they kept her passport, Air asia refused to compensate, so now we are down tickets, no maid, Paheli being a royal pain and oh i could rant for ever!!!! ....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
My slipped disc is giving me nightmares, 2 tranquilizers and a massage down and still no respite in sight, i wish i was younger, healthier and stronger and that days had 48 hrs to finish things in instead of 24.:
Im not looking forward to tommorrow and i wish i could get some more sleep :(
you think?
