And I did have plenty of time to people watch. See, when we got there and took a number, we thought we were about 30 people back in line. As it turns out, we were off a little. Some nice girl who had already waited as long as she could handed us her ticket on her way out the door. Which jumped us up in line by 85 people. EIGHTY FIVE PEOPLE, people!
There has GOT to be a better way!!
SO with my time at the DMV cut down by about 2/3, I only had about two hours for people watching. Here are some of my observations - - in no particular order:
- There were 3 other copies of Breaking Dawn in the room, most of which were being read by people who never looked up once.
- Everyone who needs a license either has their underwear hanging out of their pants, or their cleavage showing down to THERE.
- Speaking of which, could someone tell me where the DMV is where normal people get their license issues taken care of? There were hundreds of people who came through there, but the professional looking adults were few and far between. Like there were maybe 3.
- Does Donald Trump stand in line at the DMV? I don't think so.
- I bet we could speed things up considerably if the computer system were more reliable. Just sayin'.
- I'd almost rather go to the emergency room. I mean, I'd still plan on spending the same amount of time, but at least someone might come out to check and see if we're still breathing.
- Lizzie passed her driving test with flying colors. However, by the time we got back and the woman started typing her info into the computer, the computer system went down AGAIN, and we ended up waiting an extra 20 minutes before they just told everyone to go home, because it wasn't coming back up for the rest of the day. Now, granted, it was 4:30, but still. Is this a business model to work toward?
That's 3 hours of my life that are never coming back. But I guess I've wasted more. Like the time I.... wait, I'm thinking..... the time I ....
You know what? Maybe not.
