worst day in my life...
i read 3 books, parts of the php manual, and w3schools. i was really happy while studying and learning new stuff, i exposed myself to new fields ive never tried like XML, Streams and web services.
when i decided to take the exam and paid for it i got an email with the rules and stuff, i read them very well and called the test center to verify it because this caught my attention:
none of my IDs had my signature so i called the test center to see if thats okay, they said yes i only have to bring 2 IDs with my ******* face on it, and so i did yesterday.
*We ask that you arrive at the test center 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. This will
give you adequate time to complete the necessary sign-in procedures. Please be prepared to show
two (2) forms of personal ID. Both must have your signature, and one of the two must have your photo.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for an exam and are refused admission, payments are due for
the exam and delivery fees.
actually i had 3 IDs; my government ID, college ID, and a club ID. the big ** surprise was that the guy at the test center didnt accept the last 2 IDs because they arnt not "official" or "governmental" , i thought it was one of those before-test-lame-jokes but it wasnt. i kept arguing with him that my college is a governmental and my face is ** on it, at this point i was furious, i was cussing in my head so i yelled "get me the manager", an utterly cold ** showed up and said "how can i help you", we explained the problem but he didnt approve any of the IDs...i kept arguing for 45min till i gave up and stormed out of the building...im so ** pissed off, ive never been this angry and the worst thing is that theres no one to blame, even if i went back in time before the exam i wouldnt have collected "official" IDs that work.
the government only gives egyptians one regular ID. only option to get another ID was learning ** driving and get a driving license or get a passport that requires me to finish the army service....
now i have 3 options:
-learn how to drive and risk other people lives with me on the road
-finishing the army service which might take between 2 months and 3 years
-wait till php6 certification comes out and take it
the good side
its obvious that theres no good or bright side. taking the exam and failing would have been 10 times better than this bull****
