Things that have benefitted from Covid
- My anti-social homebody behavior
- The Utah DMV
I had some concerns about getting the Xterra titled and registered. Namely the fact that my usual strategy of getting in and out quickly (showing up 5 minutes before they open) was no longer very feasible with my work schedule, and that I would pretty much have to bring my 7 year old.
However, I discovered that they're only doing appointments now, and I was done in record time, having only waited for like 2 minutes. Furthermore, the DMV employee who helped me said that they would continue doing it this way post-covid.
Hurray for the DMV!

@alfalfa My son recently got his DL, and we made an appointment to get his learner's converted. In and out in about 20 minutes. Of course, we had to wait six weeks for the appointment, but I'd rather spend that much time waiting at home.

A friend that lives another state has a car that’s been off the road for years (mods that fail emissions), and his state just waved him through without visually inspecting the car.
@ttyymmnn this was so fast I didn't even keep track. I think I was in the building for 10 minutes or less

I am so loving working from home. The cafeteria is way better here! And my company is going to keep that going after the pandemic, at least to some extent. Woohoo!

@alfalfa I'm to the point where I get upset if I actually have to go somewhere. I'm going to have serious problems re-integrating into post-covid society.

Of all things to get more efficient, the DMV wouldn't have been my first guess... still, there isn't a way the DMV can get less efficient... right?

Our DMV has updated their online services. Mailed in my title on Monday and got it back the following Monday. Was pretty damn nice.
@rctothefuture they're pushing more people toward their online services, but haven't added more as far as I can tell. They've really gotten fairly efficient the past few years by themselves believe it or not. We have DMVs and DLDs (drivers license division) which is frustrating if you don't know that and go to the wrong one, but they seem to move much faster when they can focus more on half the tasks instead of everything at one building.
