Leader of the pack

Yesterday morning I had to head to the DMV to get my picture taken for my new license. They opened at 8:30 and I wanted to get there early.

 When I arrived there were maybe 3 other cars already there. I had about 15 minutes to kill before they opened. I sat and read my email and watched as other people showed up. Apparently the people who got out of the cars and walked to the door only to discover it locked hadn't noticed everyone else still sitting in their vehicles. They returned to their cars to wait.

About 5 minutes before they were scheduled to open I got out of the car and walked to the door to wait. I didn't want to be stuck behind the 20 or so people who were now waiting in the parking lot. I no sooner got to the door than everyone else started getting out and joining me. I felt like such a leader.

They promptly opened the doors at 8:30 and at 8:07 I was back in my car and on my way.
I don't even care that the picture on my my new license is worse than the old one.

In a town of less than 5000 a line would be 3-4.

Does the DMV EVER take a good picture? Mom knows someone who pretended to lose her drivers license so they would take a second picture!!!

You did very well. I love it when you can get in and out of any government office quickly. You are the leader of the pack.

Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

And if you hadn't gone to the door to wait everyone would have sat in their cars until someone waved them in LOL

What an exciting way to start a Saturday! :) Glad you were the leader and not one of the followers so you got out quickly!

It's the only way to do the DMV....you gotta go early. I love to people-watch there though, so I don't usually mind the wait.

Arlynda has to renew her license in August while mine comes due in November. Hopefully, I will be able to see well enough to pass the eye test. I have not actually driven a car in over two years, but I would still like to keep my license in case my health improves. Arlynda should not have any problems passing her test.

=Wow....that is the most efficient DL bureau I've ever heard of...getting in at 8 30 and leaving BEFORE they opened.

Okay, okay...I'll give you this one since it's Monday and all. But any further flubs like this for the rest of the week, I will HAVE to give you demerits!!!
