Now there a lot of ways to exercise patience towards services ranging from queuing in an ATM or grocery terminal, or waiting for your turn paying your bills. But this one particularly has won the “ran out of patience award” and it is not improving at all.
The LTO (Philippine Land transportation Office) is where generally you get your driver’s license if you want to legally drive around in this country and lately since the Aquino’s admin it has gone to an UPSIDE DOWN (stranger things reference) and landed on one of the frustrating things to happen to every person using a vehicle.
As you can see on the pic above, hundred’s come here patiently and exhaustively waiting for their driver’s license release and some of us has regularly coming back, waited for more than a year and a half just like what happened to my driver’s license.
What’s the worst part? the new system that Pres. Duterte added is that all the card holders will now have a 5 year policy renewal before you renew your card again than the previous that has only have 3 years.
I was expecting this to happen since my card and the rest of the people who registered in the previous year has been painstakingly waiting for its release but the plot twist was that it won’t be updated to the 5 year renewal since it was ‘OLD’ and didn’t reach the status date that it was registered earlier when Pres. Duterte changed its policy. To make it short ‘it didn’t made the cut’
The unknown release of my driver’s licence card was already unbelievable. Knowing that LTO can’t even change from 3 years to 5 years policy renewal is madness. To make things worst and continue to pile in my list of making it to my ‘worst experiences’ ever is that when they FINALLY announce it’s release date, you have to wait for an additional 1 week before they print the card out.
!*@&^!#%&^$% UNBELIEVABLE… really LTO? REALLY?!!!
And yes I was ready to flip someone’s table but luckily there was no table around and just brushed it off.
Thanks LTO for the wonderful service you continue to provide. Hope Pres. Duterte put you on his target LIST.
