Sign of the times

Friday I had to renew my CPL at the Snohomish Sheriff.  In the 15 minutes I was there, 5 other people came in for a CPL, & only one other was renewing.  I think SayUncle calls that winning.

Also, this is amusing.

    Ha! Last time I was renewing in Everett, there were two sketchy-looking characters there about some parole issue, and every other person in the waiting room… around five people as I recall… was there to either apply for or renew a CPL. The cons just kept shrinking in their chairs every time another person said “I need a Concealed Pistol License application…”

    I laughed my ass off all the way home. Even the annoyance of not being allowed to carry on the premises didn’t bring me down.

    mollbot – yup. Definitely two classes of folks there at the window last I renewed – the sketchy-looking ones, and the much more trustworthy-looking ones. Not a lot of definable, easily-point-to-able things like “suits vs homeless-looking” just a totally different air and subtle differences. Some were “registering a move” or other equally indicative action, the more trustworthy-looking others were either “applying” or “renewing.” The clerks were courteous enough with both groups, but it was clear who they’d rather deal with.
