- Went to a DMV that was 10 miles farther away than my local one. Why? Because I was in and out in a matter of minutes rather than hours! If I had gone to the closest office, I would probably have waited for forever yet again.
- I had called ahead the day before to find out what all I needed to make a smooth transition. Yeah, I had done the same when I was trying to get my license renewed, but this time I asked so many questions I think the people on the phone were wondering "Who the hell IS this woman and why is she interrogating me!?"
- I had cash. Apparently the DMV doesn't take credit or debit. I saw 3 people get turned away because of this. I also made sure I had enough cash to take care of my most expensive option. I also saw people get turned away for this. They only brought enough $$ to take care of the least expensive problem and hoped for the best. Yeah... that doesn't cut it at the DMV.
Strange enough, when I Four Squared my location, I became the mayor of the DMV office. That's not exactly a good thing, but at least I didn't have to see Patty & Selma from the Simpson's!!
