The other half have the IQ of a sea cucumber, or at the very least act as if they do because it keeps them from having to do actual work.
Here’s a few other problems.
It’s too big to run efficiently.
It has too many rules and regulations, no single person who works there can possibly be expected to remember them all or keep up with them.
There’s no competition. Have a problem with the way they do things? Tough shit, they are the only game in town.
They don’t actually care about people or customer service. Why? Because they have a monopoly. It doesn’t matter how shitty their service is or how poorly they do their job, your complaints go in one ear and out the other because they could not possibly care less about what you think. You are just a number to them, someone to shuffle from counter to counter until you either give up in frustration (yay! now they have less work to do!) or you finally manage to accomplish your task, no thanks to them.
I don’t care if you are liberal or conservative, no one likes the DMV.
How anyone could remain in the belief that the government is efficient or good at accomplishing tasks in any way that is beneficial to mankind after a trip to the DMV?
Yet for some reason this is exactly what liberals really want from our healthcare system.
“Obamacare isn’t working! Let’s have a single payer system instead!”
Yeah sure, that will work beautifully.
Liberals bitch and moan about how “Insurance companies just see you as a number!” but at least they see me as a number that has the opportunity to walk away and take my money with me.
Government departments know they have a monopoly and you aren’t going anywhere, they can treat you as poorly as they want to. It doesn’t have to make sense, because just like your last frustrating visit to the DMV, what can you do? Go somewhere else to renew your license or your emissions test or your tags? Not gonna happen.
Talk to me about being “nothing more than a number” when you are sitting in the questionably sanitary chairs at the Department of Health Services office, waiting 2 hours for A0027 to be called so you can finally talk to a real person, only to be told you need to give them your paperwork and wait for your number to called again, so you can tell someone else what your problem and be told you have to come back tomorrow because no one can help you with that today.
We’ll see what tune you’re singing then.
