Did you ever watch the Star Trek series where the Borg were running around "assimilating" other cultures."

"You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile!"

That about sums up the paperwork side of Life in France for us foreigners. Actually, you kind of get used to it after a bit. First phrase you should use and practice in French: "Excusez-moi de vous déranger, mais pouvez-vous m'aider?" Even in deepest, darkest officialdom here in France, going all "humble" can works wonders.
Cheers,
Bev

Thanks to everyone who has assisted me so far - I am currently going through the painful experience of all the admin required by the OFII - maybe I should keep notes and then publish a book!!!!
