Well I went to the Driver's License office again yesterday. The 4th time I've been up there & the other times walked out because of the wait.... This time I decided to stay no matter what. I took my copy of Scrapbooks ETC with me to pass the time. The line was longer than ever & I counted 48 people waiting to get a number. I brought my camera to take a picture of it.... not thinking I was doing anything wrong an employee came over & told me I wasn't allowed to use a camera inside & that he would need to delete the photo I just took. There were no signs or anything I think they were just worried I was going to report their inexcusable slacky way of treating the customers. So he deleted my photo & handed me back the camera.
They had one woman checking each person in & having them fill out paperwork making sure they have all the documents they needed before giving them a number. So she would have people crowded around her reception desk writing on forms then breaking back into line to show they completed it. To complicate things further quite a few people didn't speak English or bring a translator (she spoke Spanish but there were people from all over the world). I give that lone woman credit as she was working her butt off & doing the best she could. The process itself was very inefficient. It took me 1 hour & 22 minutes to get my number & wait in the chairs to be called up to the window. Once I had my number I was out of there with license in hand in just over 30 minutes which was super. They need to get the first part of the process running smoother. I purchased the 10 year license so I wouldn't have to deal with this again any time soon.
I've got cleaning to do today but plan to sneak in some time to make a card or 2. I want to enter the contest at Hero Arts but only have a few Quickutz dies so don't know if I can come up with anything that looks good enough to enter & I'm not buying one just for the challenge. Too far to ride up to Archivers.
What are you planning on doing today? Have a great one!
