I don't know anyone who doesn't cringe when making a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles, envisioning a purgatory of endless lines and surly employees. This afternoon I arrived at my local DMV at 4:50pm (they close at 5:00) without an appointment and saw a line out the door. I figured I'd be lucky to get in at all. Not only did I make it in to the queue, I got my driver's license renewal taken care of by 5:30pm. The chairs are still uncomfortable, another customer tried to beg money off me, and service isn't exactly provided with a smile-- but still, +1 to the San Diego Hillcrest DMV office for not putting me through the bureaucratic wringer.
