Sunday late afternoon. You’re all set to go to the Imelda May concert. Last thing is to open the letter with the tickets. On which is printed: 20:00 hrs, Friday, 20th, May 2011. How on earth we came to think, the gig would be yesterday, I can not explain. We took a walk instead. But the other thing is much more annoying. Agonizing, to be exact. Last Saturday my driving licence was due back. I had some understanding for the fact that today would be the date, as officials don’t work on weekends. But I had to learn, that not even today it is possible to go and pick up that damn license. As it is – for whatever reason – not ready. According to their rules, I reapplied for it Feb. 1st. One would think, this is long enough for any official to deal with the red tape involved. But no. The worst thing – apart from being unable to drive – is that they won’t even give you an estimate on time. We’ll send you a letter as soon as it is ready. I am not sure, I am prepared to settle for that. Might well be I go in to see whoever is dealing with this to enquire in person. Nicely. Pointing a gun. Just kidding.
