UPDATE! I got an apology. An OFFICIAL APOLOGY!!! Has the spirit of Glasnost finally arrived in Olomouc city council? Think I might have it framed.

What the hell am I going to rant about now?

Apology for what?

For telling me my business licence had been terminated in 2003, when it clearly hadn't. The text of the letter read:

Dear Mr Spleen,

We, the City of Olomouc, realise that we were fools and scoundrels to call into question the legitimacy and fundamentally unimpeachable goodness of the immensely beneficial work you perform in this region. The employee responsible for the error has committed suicide, which we consider entirely appropriate, if somewhat belated. Nevertheless, we still feel partially tainted ourselves by this regrettable incident. We acknowledge that we are scum, not worthy of communicating with you in any manner whatsoever, however we trust that thanks to the awe-inspiring magnanimity with which we know you have been blessed, you may somehow find it in your heart to accept this meek and humble apology. Yours tearfully, the City of Olomouc.

I may have used a bit of artistic licence in the translation, but you get the general idea.

Good thing you are so full of Grace,
no doubt you will find goodness in your heart.

I don't believe for a second you got an apology from them! Are you sure it's not from someone who reads this blog and felt sorry for you?

Dear Jitka, I admit that I lied heinously in the previous comment, but the fact remains that I received a letter bearing the official crest and stamp of Magistrát města Olomouce (odbor živnostenský), which contains, amongst other matters, the words "Tímto se Vám omlouváme za případné potíže". No shit. Next time you visit I promise to show it to you. The times they are a-changing.

I did get the idea that you used a bit of artistic licence with the content of the letter but still, I find it hard to believe that they would apologize for ANYTHING. By the way, I have got a nice one too - they once refused to get me registered with 'Financni urad' because my surname began in a letter they didn't deal with.

That's because you married an imperialist dog! You should be the one apologising!
