D is for DMV (See? I am catching up.)

Image obtained through Google images. Thanks Google.
D is for DMV.
I had to wait 3 hours at the local DMV today. *sigh*
My car's registration expired in March and I had to catch up. What is even more annoying is I had to transfer my UT plates to NV plates. And also of course, had to change the UT license.
So annoying.

I waited.

I read my book for a while. The first 45 minutes went by fast.

Then I started to listen to other people's gripes on waiting.

People really do NOT like to wait longer than 15 minutes for something.

People with cell phones were texting like mad. I continued to read my book. It wasn't a bad book at all. But you have to semi-read your book because you still have to pay attention to the cranky DMV lady about to call your number.

I was 76. When I arrived the lady was in the 50's still. *sigh* This is gonna take a LOOOOONG time I am afraid.

When she finally called my number I was so excited. I had all the paperwork with me. Marriage certificate, car insurance, bank card, 2 forms of identity, my firstborn child, (Not really, but I felt like it) then the lady asked me if I need glasses to drive. My license said I did, but I don't actually need glasses to drive. I can see just fine without them, thankyouverymuch.

"Please read line two."
I squinted. I could not read line 2.
She told me to go home quickly and get my glasses, then come back she will help me then.
When I came back--she helped me right away, I felt like such a VIP, and proceeded to read the eye test.
"Please read line 2." Left eye is being tested. (supposedly my good eye.)
I read 8 numbers.
"Do you see 12 numbers? Read the 12 numbers back to me."
I only saw 8 numbers with my left eye. (And that's my good eye folks.)

Too make a LONG story shorter, I am scheduled for an eye exam tomorrow afternoon.
I need an eye exam. Must. get. contacts. And of course a new pair of glasses. Mainly cause the pair I wear now only have one ear wand. Or whatever you call those part of your glasses.

I'll take a picture with my new glasses. If I like them.

*sigh* I don't want to go blind yet.

Yep, I had to get glasses three years ago. I went for no glasses to progressives! Drat these eyes! E is for the eyes you used to have! I think I need another cookie!

My mom knew it was time for me to have my eyes checked, when we were driving down the road and I thought I saw cows, but were horses.
