Today is the day we celebrate the thankless work of customs around the world for their tireless work in keeping our borders safe from menacing outsiders and Johnny Foreigners!
To celebrate this year, you can read a thrilling report called Data Analysis for Effective Border Management, or build a long, expensive wall in your back garden to commemorate the spirit of discord and otherness.
If that doesn’t take your fancy there’s also:
International Fisherman Day
International Freedom Day
and some other minor celebrations that I’ve forgotten about. Let’s celebrate by sharing our favorite customs story I’ll start!
Um… actually, being in the EU I kind of don’t have to deal with them anymore. Also the UK has a weird computer customs thing now so IDK.
Never mind! I’m sure someone here has a great story involving “would you come this way please sir” and the alarming pop of surgical gloves being snapped on. Right?
