Default If USCIS was a TV selling company !!!!!

This is just a humour but has a meaning underneath if you try to understand. I am comparing USCIS to a product selling company. If USCIS was a TV selling company what would happen to the customers the way it acts ?

You could buy a TV but you will not know when you will get it. It could be shipped the next week, the next month, next year or never.
The credit card will be charged once, may be charged twice or a valid CC may get rejected.
Somebody who buys a TV from USCSIS a 2 years after you do, he may get it sooner than you do.
USCIS has no way of knowing how many TVs have been ordered and how many of them are in stock.
In case you do not receive your TV in two years, USCIS acknowledges that there is a long wait time for some and does not do anything about it. USCIS thinks acknowledgment of wait time is more than enough that it has done for the customers. Customers did not deserve this but USCIS did a favour to them being a good "Customer Service" company
There would be an online survey after you buy it which would never get submitted 99% of the times.
In case it did get submitted, somebody will read one out of 10,000.
After reading it he will throw it in the trash can.
If you get a defective TV (which is quite likely), you have a chance to file appeal by paying the same amount of money for the TV again so that your case can be re-opened.
I wonder how many customers would USCIS have eventually ??? Any guesses ??? :-)

Do you work for a TV manufacturing company or watch lots of shows like a couch potato. I can understand you like to watch some channels but cannot imagine spending hours to make a quote

Years and years of wait, fear, desperation, being deceived and finally followed by series of shocks called visa bulletins --> end result "it all ends-up this way".

My apologies, I thought I was making a point. The point was trying to see and realize that if USCIS was behaving with us this way it is, what would happen if it was a product selling company ? Could it do the same to its customers ? Could customers tolerate it ? Could USCIS have survived ?
But if I could not show it just ignore my thread or Admin , please delete it.

Just to add -

If customer is from India/China/Mexico then they will receive the product in 10 years. Rest all can get it in 3/4 years.

If customer uses Master Card (EB-1) then they get it in 6 months, Discover (EB-2) in 1 year. Rest all will wait for a long time.


Their order goes in pending queue, if they do not receive the product within 1 year then they have to renew the order and customer will pay for this renewal.

9 YEARS AND COUNTING.........................
