I have a post in General..that is titled Passport given to...??

It might be prudent to make yourselves aware of what 'could' and really did, happen. And in the telling...there is nothing I could have done to prevent the incident from happening. Skip to page 4 to my latest, for a short version.

Where exactly is this post? I searched the forum for those keywords and found nothing except this post.
Did you mean your blog? Couldn't find a "General" tab or folder.
Pardon my inability to locate the post.

From what I recall, because of a "fruit" flag from the crossing the day before, we were also held for agriculture. The agent kept our passports, but I saw him hand them to another agent before I drove forward, and she was the one we met at agriculture- definitely a process gap here, but seems like the honest mistake was handled magnanimously by you. Kudos for setting a good example!

Got it, thanks. Also 2oldman, good trick. Thanks.

That's a good one. I cross about once a week, but we have trusted traveller access, no passports. We never carry anything declarable into the US, only report purchases etc. at CBSA on our return.
They sometimes swipe our cards through the machine in the kiosk, probably the equivalent of a passport stamp, and sometimes just wave us through, "have a nice day".

Just read the entire post. Gary, I must say, you have much more patients than I ever would. I would have been crying, throwing a fit, and acting like a fool,.. probably. I've traveled international, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Canada, and Mexico, and in my opinion, that passport is more important than money. I would have been ecstatic and probably hauled off to a loony-bin. Coodo's to your level headedness and understanding. And glad everything worked out for you.
