Someone once said that if you do not believe in the resurrection then hang around a government office of any kind around quitting time and you will see it happen in real life. Now I am not talking about any particular government office, it can be city, state, national or international. The case point today centers on the county tax office where you buy your vehicle license plates. Due to circumstances beyond my control I walked into their maze of roped pathways(I was the only one in the maze so I had to walk back and forth, turn, walk back and forth, turn, then like coming out of a starting chute I walked up to the nervous lady who would record my title, charge me a fee and send me on my way. She was nervous because now it was 10 minutes before quitting time at 5:00 p.m. and she was sure it was going to push her into over time. She was nice and cordial but you could read the anxiety in her actions with her eye movement and slight tremor in her hands. Transferring a title to a vehicle is a big deal and takes some concentration so that made it even worse. Then she had to make a copy of the transaction and she literally ran to the copy machine which was only 10 feet from her. Now of all things she made a mistake and had to start all over. She did apologize for the mistake and the extra time it was taking but I was really relaxed and was not adding to her frustrations. After all I had my place in line secured(I was the only one there) and she only had me to worry about. In my idle time I noticed that they had another lady who walked back and forth behind the ladies taking care of the real work(looking like a watch dog). It appeared that her job was to make sure the work got done by 5:00 p.m. and not a minute over. Feeling a little responsible for my attendants nervous feeling I did apologize for coming in so late and she said that was okay since sometimes a person comes in at 4:59 p.m. with a hand full of titles, Ooooops, am I a glad I don’t have to witness that. At any rate I got my title transferred, paid the $30.00 fee, and made my exit out as they locked the doors behind me and I heard the clicks loud and clear. Sense of urgency in action!!

Quote of the week: Texas Tech Head Coach Tommy Tuberville stated(after two straight blow out losses): “We obviously don’t have much of a defense, sense the other team never had to punt during the game, that is the first time I have seen that happen in my many years of coaching!” Wow Coach Tub, wonder how you came upon that conclusion? For your info Coach, the Raiders will probably lose the last 3 games of the season and if they do win one it will be completely by accident. Rather than give your guys chill pills you need to give them cases of Red Bull!! It works every time!

EA, SH.........:)
