Renewing my driver's license
We’ve all heard the stories of two and three-hour waits to renew a driver’s license in Sedgwick County. The state recently opened a second Department of Motor Vehicles office in the county, in Derby. They beefed up the staff at the D-M-V in Andover.
I took a day off work Friday, November 1st. Around 10 a-m I dropped into the D-M-V in Twin Lakes. It was packed. D-M-V employee Christopher told me it would be a two-hour wait. I said I would come back another time, and asked which day might be best. Christopher said Monday … any Monday … they’re “always dead” on Mondays.
So I went in at 11:40 Monday, the 4th. I walked out the door at 11:50.
Those who know me well are aware that I am not a patient person. Waiting in line drives me crazy. I was resigned to some kind of wait at the D-M-V.
What a pleasant surprise to get in and out in 10 minutes!
Our thought for today is from Franz Kafka:
“There are two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness.”
