pleasantly surprised

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I just have moved to Maryland, and I had to exchange my PA drivers license. I am reasonably sure that in other states too, going to the DMV, or MVA, is a daunting experience. So, I had my "patience face" on and headed toward the building......up ahead there was a little folding table, with an umbrella for the sun, and several "political" signs tapped to it and various piles of pamphalets and papers, and a younger man standing by. "Great", I thought, "not only do I have to stand in line for several hours but I'm going to be enlightened by whatever is pissing this guy off too." So as I got closer I started thinking of an appropriate response for whatever he was going to hit me with when I walked by. Well, to my surprise, as I approached, he smiled (which made me smile) and said, "I'm just here trying to stir up some trouble......." to which I wittily responded, "well I certainly don't want any of that" and we both chuckled and I proceeded into the building. If that wasn't a surprise enough, would you believe there was no one in line, and I had all of the correct proofages and paperwork, the people were friendly and helpful and I was finished in about 1/2 hour complete with my MD drivers license (horrible photo and all)! Miracles do exsist. I did however avoid eye contact and verbage with the political table steward on my way back across the parking lot though, no sense in tempting fate.

    Lucky you! My last visit to the MA Registry to get a renewed DL took over 3 hours. I have no idea what was going on but it was the worst of the worst! I'm glad to hear it doesn't always have to be that way.
