more DMV adventures

My conversation with the lady processing my license-transfer application at the DMV this morning.

DMV Lady:
One week till August. I can't believe it's almost August. I don't like summer in New York, it's too HOT, better in October and November, winter doesn't really start till January. It's just too HOT. I got heat stroke in my HOUSE, I didn't know you could get heat stroke inside, only thought you could get it outside.

Me: Oh. Wow.

DMV Lady: My friend tries to keep calling me but she's one of those people who'll just talk for three hours straight. She just keep talking and talking and talking. Doesn't stop! I don't got TIME for that, you know?

Me: Mmm.

DMV Lady: Obama's birthday is August 4th! Forty seven. He won't be the youngest president. The youngest president was Theodore Roosevelt. Forty two. Next there's gonna be a woman president. People don't think a woman can be president, think they're the weaker sex. But behind every great man is a great WOMAN.

Me: Yes.

DMV Lady: Men, they just think with their private parts. Women, they don't DO that so much. No they don't.

. . .

Here, take this and wait for your number to come up on the board again.

Me: Okay thanks!
