Had to come back and let you know......IT'S OVER!!
I did it, I returned to the DMV.....I went at almost 4:30...they close at 5, this is a tip from my husband. If you are in near 5, they want you out....so they work hard to that end.
The computer that was down was now up....all the hamsters were running the same way in the little spinner thing so they were able to verify my existence.
They allowed me to line jump, gave me a number, which came up immediately, I was seated quickly with a very nice woman who went through her questions fast, fast, fast. I took the eye test...one side? 20/10... hooray! the other side? 20/200 - one eye for far away one eye for up close....they average it to 20/40.....hmm, don't ask.
...another line jump for my gorgeous picture.....
Back to the first woman who collected money for the whole process...she told me the drivers license will come in the mail.
Bye, bye!! Thank you for coming!!
Moral of the story? The DMV workers are like fireman when it is almost 5.
And because there is no education from the second kick of a mule, I will never go to the DMV before 4 PM again.
Another lesson learned..
