Waiting for State Service


Waiting For a Train, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

I went to the Roads Traffic Authority (RTA) today to renew my license. The Weasel doesn't have a car, but the license is useful for ID purposes when approaching government beauracracy like the RTA.

To get to my local RTA office I could catch two trains, or catch a bus and a train or catch two buses. I chose to walk. One hour after setting off, I got to the RTA. It would have been sooner, but I stopped at a federal polly's office to be told they weren't responsible for me.

The RTA was in uproar when I got there. Their computers were down. "Come back tomorrow" they suggested, helpfully. Apparently every RTA in the state was affected.
