F407 5The first part is your own personal waiting code ticket, which you can reflect on for many, many minutes in the air-conditioned comfort of the DMV office. The second part is the window youre supposed to report to. I have no idea why they've decided to partition the sequence into n segments where n is the total number of letter prefixes used. I originally had thought it was to create a false sense of impending action, but if youre going to let each letter get up to 999 and wrap around, then theres really no reason to not go with just a straight number code. In addition to this crap, Arizonas DMV features an automated ro-bot voice reading off the top line of the display. Or, thats what its supposed to do. Instead, it reads the top letter, and then the number of the second line, and the window from the first line. There is also an LCD sign that attempts to relieve the boredom by presenting various vacuous trivia questions, and Im surprised the whole thing didnt just burst into flames from the combined mind power of hundreds of trapped citizens. Then, finally, the license photo.

There. I have complained about the DMV. Next: airlines.
