Activity and Accomplishment
Today I had both...
so anyway, I used up another of my 2012 carry-over vacation days today and took care of my CPL business with the County. You'll remember, the last time I made the attempt, things did not go as planned.
To be honest, I expected a cold welcome at the County Clerk's office in the Peoples' Republik of AnnArbor. I was pleasantly surprised with how the clerkette handled the transaction; she was professional and actually pleasant about the matter at hand. Ten minutes and $105 later, I was on my way.
A note on my time spent at the County Clerk's office: the guy in front of my was applying for a concealed carry permit. The guy behind me was, too. Read on.
So, I was then off to the Washtenaw County Sheriff Department, to be finger-printed like a common criminal. I was fifth in line. Of the four in front of me, three were there to be finger-printed (like a common criminal) for a Concealed Pistol Licence. The other one was there to pay off an eight-year old traffic citation (guess who took the most time?).
I washed my hands as instructed and took a seat. Shortly, I was beckoned into the finger-printing room, where the Deputy took my finger-prints. Making small talk with the fetching Deputy, I asked her how often she was taking finger-prints for prospective CPL applicants. She said "From when I get here in the morning, to when I go home at night, I'm finger-printing CPL applicants."
In making more small talk with the Deputy, I said something to the effect of "....I've been meaning to get my CPL for years....." to which she replied "well it's good to see you've decided to stop slacking off".
