SO this mean I have dual citizenship in the U.S. and Italy! Soon I'll go and get an Italian passport so when traveling people don't give me the stink eye for being an American, like these two German passport police officers at the Frankfurt airport when I was heading to Italy in early May. They questioned what I would be doing here for longer than three months without a visa, and apparently spending time with your grandma and other family isn't the right answer. They very rudely told me that I'd have to end my trip before three months was up, or they'd charge me a HUGE fine if I tried to return to the U.S., after 90 days abroad, through their airport. Or I'd have to file for and obtain residency in order for them to leave me be. Then these two officers spoke to each other in German right in my face, murmured something about "American" and laughed... This really pissed me off, especially after getting off a 9 hour flight and having to walk a few miles in their gigantic airport to get to that point.
Now they can both shove it where the sun don't shine because this American is also Italian, and they can't fuck with me. I can't wait to go back through their airport to transfer flights, I hope I find the same two officers so I can shove my new passport into their faces and laugh hysterically.
SUCK IT GERMANY! (That's why Italy won the 2006 World Cup on your turf!! HAHAHAHA!)
