Today I had to go to the DMV to get my license plate renewed and as always, it was an ordeal.
First, there was this man who was constantly talking to himself. There was a kid that kept
yelling at his mom, and it seemed that everyone who worked there was in a bad mood. So I
decided to be overly nice to the woman working behind the counter in hopes of putting her
in a better mood. I asked how she was doing and I didn't get an answer. I tried to make
small talk, and I was ignored. When I was done I looked at her and said, "have a great day"
and she smiled back and wished me the same. It took awhile for her to budge, but I hope
a friendly farewell made her day a little bit better.
