Yes, because I just moved, I had to sit over an hour waiting to re-register my car. Thank goodness I had a book with me! You are so right in those final two lines!
We spent all afternoon yesterday at the DMV getting my 15 year old her driver's permit. 1/2 an hour to drive there and back, and an hour and half waiting! The DMV's system so needs to be streamlined. My daughter passed the written test with flying colors...now she can drive with my husband or me. Yikes! =)
Oh wow! I see a poem coming. Yes, the DMV, makes fools of us all.
Liz, do you get to make this pilgrimage with your son soon? C had her first lesson on the street yesterday (she has been practicing in parking lots) and is humbled by how scary/dangerous it really is. My husband is a saint. =)
