Greece the wheel

Below is a transcript of an actual phone conversation between one of SB's friends, LK, and the Greek Consul in New York City.

Consul: "Well, my predecessor had left a lot of citizenship applications pending..."
LK: "From 2008? I haven't heard anything since then, despite numerous emails."
Consul: "That does not necessarily mean that your application has been lost ... you may already be a citizen of Greece!"
LK: "Pardon?"
Consul: "In fact, it is possible that you have been a citizen of Greece since 2008, except that no one has let you know."
LK: (stunned silence)
Consul: "I have the sense that this conversation is not making you feel better."
