Let’s Hang Out at the DMV

Today was designated DMV day, a day I’d been putting off for months because I assumed all DMVs were like the SoCal DMV where hours of waiting in line with hundreds of equally irritated people wins you an audience with a tweaked DMV employee. Needing both a new registration AND a new license, I carved out four hours and prepared to be irritated.

And this is the slice of heaven I found when I walked into the DMV in Hudson, New York…

One person in line, and dear Mary, who patiently guided me through the paper work. I was in and out in 25 minutes, and it only took that long because I had to do one of the forms twice (pen explosion).

Mary handed over the plates, smiled and said, “Welcome to New York.”

  2. Is that not the best experience ever? Mine was similar in Kingston! We were laughing so hard, Teddy took my photo as we left. Molly got her license in Millerton…equally fabulous. Welcome to New York, indeed.

  3. Well, that’s about as different from California as it could be, eh? Even the office is attractive, in stark contrast to the grimy, 60’s industrial vibe of the Cali DMV…

    Wow. I want.
