So today I was in line at the DMV for about an hour and a half, getting my license renewed. Somewhere about half an hour in, a guy said: "license renewed this way" and I perked up, but said: "what if I have to get an eye test." He said "that line," and pointed, I thought, to the line I was in already. But when I got to the front of the line, the woman (who looked like she'd been inflated with one of those helium pumps they get at expensive childrens' birthday parties (that's the birthday party that's expensive, not the child...although him too, I guess), said: you could have come around and we would have processed you right away. N.B. for next time: if that's the case, I want you to lie to me so I feel like that hour of my life had meaning.
