Government Offices Flooded With People On First Office Day of 2009

During this first office day of the year, I was confronted with the many people who flooded to government offices as transactions for year 2009 resumed.

During the holidays, I lost my wallet which contained my important IDs and credit cards, it was a good thing I was able to have the credit cards stopped before anyone could have used it.

So, this afternoon I set out to get a replacement for my driver's license and went to the Land Transportation Office (LTO) renewal center at Robinson's Metro East. There were so many people that I had a hard time making my way in front of the customer service representative to ask about the procedure and requirements for the replacement of my lost driver's license. First, the CSR asked me where I last renewed my driver's license and told me that I would have to go to the renewal center where I last renewed so they can direct me to the LTO office where the renewal center falls under.

So I went to the renewal center at Farmers, Cubao and was directed to the LTO office at P. Tuazon, Cubao, Quezon City. Sadly, all the LTO offices I went to were offline so I was only able to get an affidavit of loss and fill out an application and will need to come back. I tried waiting at the office in case they went online but eventually decided to postpone the processing of my license replacement tomorrow. When I got home, I saw the news about the different government offices that were flooded with people. I guess everything was a rresult of the long holiday. I am hopeful that, eventually, government offices will be able to adjust soon and everything will go back to normal.
