4 MINUTES....For A Driver's License!


I just got my driver's license updated....photo AND vision test. And it took 4 MINUTES!

Let me repeat that.

4 MINUTES!


Holy Madonna Video, Batman!

(By the way, I went to AAA....un-freakin'-believable!)

I made my hair head-banger huge for the event. My 9 year old daughter told me I looked "inappropriate" for a driver's license photo and made me put my hair up in a clip.

Foiled yet again!

Have a great day,
Penelope

I'm in shock. Altho I made an appointment at the DMV to fix something regarding my registration and before I could even fill out my name on the form I was handed, the clerk called me up to the desk.
I too was floored.

ok, I've never seen that video. But how would I, they never seem to play videos on TV anymore. I have to watch them online.

anyway, 4 minutes, that's a miracle!

Is this good service or poor. Should they be taking more time to process you to see if you are a myopic wild haired lumberjack beardloving sex mad suburban hausfrau?

Sounds like today's the day you should be buying a lottery ticket!

That's crazy talk. Were you waiting outside the door when they opened?

Julia.....If I had gone to the DMV instead of AAA, it probably would have been at least a 2 hour wait. I got a hot tip about AAA, and boy did it pay off. Yippeeeee!

HMCW.....It WAS a miracle! Fastest time ever!

Penelope said...

Tom....I looked like a librarian...glasses, hair in a bun, demure. Heee heeeee...me, demure. Seriously. ;^)

Penelope said...

Darlene...you are right. I should buy a lottery ticket! My appointment was so fast that when I got to the mall afterward to run an errand, it wasn't even open yet. Craziness!

Penelope said...

Tasha....They opened at 9 am and I got there around 9:05? There were a couple of other folks milling around, but I walked right up, did my eye exam (20 seconds?), took my photo (10 seconds), and poof! I was done.

I always go to AAA for my renewal. They are a million times faster! That is the main reason I keep my membership active. I hate that I have to go to an actual DMV for my kid's license!

There is nothing that takes 4 minutes at the DMV in RI. 4 hours minimum. Seriously, bring snacks.

Penelope said...

Casey....the DMV is a nightmare. It's like the gates of hell. The worst is standing in a line for an hour, getting to the front, and having someone tell you that you've been in the wrong line and you have to start all over again somewhere else.

AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Thank God for AAA!

Penelope said...

Nina....haaaa! That is so true. You need to bring a survival pack...food, water, reading material. A Swiss Army knife.

Heeee!
