So as usual I wait til the last minute to do something. I bought a new truck last month and my 30 day tag expires tomorrow! Don't you hate the excruciatingly long wait at the tag office? I knew that people had been waiting longer than usual because of new computer systems so I was dreading the experience. So...I devised a plan:
I live about a mile from the tag office so on my way home yesterday I stopped in to see how long the wait was knowing that I had just 2 days to tag my vehicle. I walked in to the crowded tag office, pulled my number from the round red number dispenser...66. I looked up at the counter on the wall...01. "This can't be right" I thought, so I waited until they called the next number. After 10 minutes they call out: "number 2". So it took 15 minutes from number 1 to number 2. I was holding number 66.
I decided since I live so close I would go home for awhile and come back and they would be closer to calling my number. So I went home. Played in an online poker tournament, all the while being very aware ot the time. I figured it would be at least 2 hours before my number came up. By the time my tournament was finished about 2 hours had elapsed. I knew I needed to get back. I figured my timing was going to be just about perfect. I was so proud of myself! I pulled in to the tag office parking lot, walked in, looked up at the counter on the wall: 70
I missed it by probably less than two minutes!!!!!
Today I will go, and I will wait.
