At the end of the year last year, I decided to apply. So on December 31 (that's not a federal holiday, right?) I went to my local sheriff's office, only to find a sign that they had closed for New Year's Eve.
The next Monday (it basically has to be Mondays they way they're set up), I went out in the snow and visited the office, to find a sign that they had closed early due to snow.
The next week, I finally made it in, filled everything out, and was told it was taking a while for everything to go through, so it might be a couple of months.
Today (4 weeks later) I get The Call. It's ready. Come in, get a picture taken, have it laminated, and good to go.
So I go in...and they tell me the camera broke earlier that day, they'll have to call me when it's fixed.
Ah well, I wasn't in the mood for nachos tonight anyway.
