I got there at 7:15 and it opens at 8. I was third in line. By 8 the parking lot was full and the line of humanity was wrapped all along the sidewalk and around the building. Just unwashed, stinky, noisy, fugly people. Half them with a smoke hanging out of their yaps. Ugh.

 


At least, you didn't have to deal with this:

I rolled out of bed at 8AM today (and I think 8AM is early), but I do have a job. :embar:

Did the same thing back in December a week before Christmas.

What I don't get is how the DMV is ALWAYS full of unsavory people, no matter where or when you go.

Where are all the reglar people?

I will say that I felt bad for the Spanish speaking immigrants who couldn't speak much English and needed help. The DMV workers treat them like shit and talk down to them with such disdain in their voices.

This is the pic that changed young LD's life. 

FWIW, pictures still get loaded when you put spoiler tags around them. That popped up in my "recent images" tab at work despite now having loaded it. Probably safer to just not link to NSFW images,

Isn't it amazing the place is always full of them? As to the Spanish speakers...most DMV, hell most customer facing government workers, try to treat everyone like shit. The guy on the other side of the counter got an, "Excuse me?" in my best you just pissed off the boss voice. He at least stopped being a dipshit after that.

Atlanta's DMV: walk in and out in 30 minutes or less no matter what time of day! I've had to get some fairly complex stuff taken care of (and had like, 8 visits in a four-year span ffffuuuu.gif) and it's never been a long wait. There was one time where about 20 people were in line to get their service ticket but that was the worst wait.

I might be wrong, but I think a lot more 'normal' people used to be down at the DMV before online/mail-in options became available. Now anyone w/ routine/non-pressing business jumps at the opportunity to avoid the riff-raff if at all possible. The folks you see in person are the ones who can't get their s#it together enough to plan ahead and take care of things via the internet/mail. There's also a subset of people who HAVE to show up in person b/c their dealing w/ more serious stuff that often involves some kind of infraction (lapsed licenses, driving while suspended, no insurance, etc.), although in truth these are usually the same ones who don't have their sh!t together enough to plan ahead....

kinda surprised that piobaire doesn't have some kind of auto club membership, don't they offer dmv services without the dregs?

Too bad one cannot register their car online.

That's a multibillion dollar product right thar.

Moderate? Dunno...it is pretty much impossible to describe warmth considering there are no real standards and it varies for everyone.

Tried on a bunch of jackets today at REI/Patagonia/Moosejaw. I think I can deal with a hood. Most of the ones I looked at, the hood was very good at staying out of the way and not being floppy.

That said, it was very hard to find an insulated jacket with the right properties. Might have to look into switching to a pure shell + layers.

The Patagonia Insulated Powder Bowl was the closest I could get. Waterproof hard shell, medium insulation, pretty good overall, although it appears to be sold out everywhere in a blue medium (the store had black, but I definitely don't want black).

This probably explains much.

Kind of have to show up in person, with proper documentation, to get your citizenship status changed. Ever since 9/11 Trump became president that stuff is taken very seriously.

Also, I now desperately want a Patagonia Crag Daddy 45L pack.

Dunno why it wasn't on my radar when I did my backpack search in august...because it seems to check all the boxes for what I wanted.

In my experience only unsavory people find themselves at the dmv more than once or twice a decade. The last I've been was when I lost my id 4-5 years ago. Now I have my id number saved so I can get a replacement sent in the mail

Here at the office I frequently listen to Pandora when I'm not meeting with clients. Today, on a whim, I created a Kanye West channel to see what Pandora would send my way.

After listening for about a half hour, I can once again say that I guess I just don't get this kind of music, as it puts me into a state of hibbeldy-jibbeldy-ness and makes me feel like my mente is broken.

Gonna relinquish your US citizenship prior to Trump getting elected? Understandable.
