So I went to the BMV this morning to renew my driver's license. It expires Thursday of this week.

The BMV website now has a feature where you can schedule an appointment and they get you in and out within a half hour. So I scheduled an appointment for 9am. I got there at 8:40.

Everything was going swimmingly until they actually tried to print out my driver's license. There were two printers and one was printing just fine but the other was queued up and doing nothing. I sat there for 20 minutes after she told me it would be a minute and then someone noticed me still sitting there. Apparently they cannot fix this on location but had to call the Indianapolis office to take care of it. And apparently the Indy office was too busy to get to it right then. So I waited another 20 minutes and started throwing a fit. Well, not at first. I started throwing a fit when they told me they would give me a refund and I could come back another day.

Eventually they managed to delete the job waiting in the queue and then had to retake my picture - so I now have an angry photo on my license. ARGH!

I'm not looking forward to it. I have BMV duty this fall as well. The joys of bureaucracy.
