Are any of you guys Texan? I'm currently looking for someone to help me at my booth at AKon - I need a money monkey to take the cash for me since the US gov't feels it is a big no no for an insidious job-stealing Canadian to do so.

I can't afford to pay you for your time (sorry!) but I will pay for your pass to the convention and give you free prints/buttons.

No need to apologise in this thread if you can't or don't live nearby - it's a lot for me to ask, I know. But I gotta ask anyhow!

It's entirely possible someone didn't wish to give out their location and contacted the Lady privately.

It's also entirely possible that no one lives in Texas.

That's right. Anyone you meet in Texas is probably a figment of your imagination.

Haha, sorry. No one from the forum, I meant.

Nope, no Texan forumites. I contacted the old skool ones I knew live there personally. I was just checking to see if there were any I didn't know of.

I'd rather hang out with someone that I know than a stranger, y'know?

Absolutely... Here's hoping it works out for you!

I read your little mini comic. I know it sounds so "dangerous",... But I'd recommend a little bluff.... just tell em your passing the stuff out, which, technically, you are... it's just that there's funds being passed back, which they dont' need to know about....

That's called Fraud, and I would really rather not see The Lady caught up in anything of that nature. Wink

Yeah, I can bet they would have stopped her when they saw her bringing multiple of the same items. Lawyers can say you can take stuff over to sell, but technically no, you're not allowed to do it. I'm sure you called the USCIS about it too. Yeah, you can call them 5 different times and get somewhat of the same answer, but none of them really know what you're asking. It all comes down to the Border Patrol. Doesn't matter what your lawyer told you, or what the USCIS told you, the border/customs has to clear it. And even then, most of them don't even have their stories straight.

You have no idea how hard of a time I had trying to immigrate to Michigan from Ontario. Because I was engaged to an American Citizen, and it was hard for me to visit. He had already taken all my stuff to the USA, and the day I tried to go over, we were denied, I was fingerprinted, and sent 3 hours back driving to my home in Ontario.. Took a lot of talking to the border chief and finally getting a pass to go into the USA. I'm only 23, and I never used a lawyer.

So main point is, USCIS and Border Patrol do not know the same thing! Always be careful with what you do, and you are 'technically' not allowed to come into America from any other country to 'sell' goods. You're not a tax paying resident. I believe its illegal income. You need a visa to earn money in the States. Also, always tell the truth. If you lie, you could be Banned from the USA.

Also, when you get refused and fingerprinted, it means you were trying to do something illegal, and they have you on record for that. It sucks!

I'm glad it all worked out for you though. I know you must have spent a butt load of money shipping all that to yourself, as well as gas and time of having to turn back around. I wish I could have noticed earlier to help you out. I've dealt with the customs/immigration wolves for over a year. What fun! (By the way, this is in 2009. I was on a Visit visa for 8 months after being married, then had to come home for another 8 months before I got my US resident status. Everything worked out perfectly in the end Wink )

I'm glad you had a great time in Texas!

Perhaps because it's accusatory, and not funny. Let's try to stay away from criminality and insults, all right? There's plenty of other fish in the humor sea.
