If you thought the DMV in the US was a horrible tortuous proccess, you should read about the process in China.
My heart sank when the military uniform lady told me the forms must be filled with a felt-tip or fountain pen (I used a ballpoint pen, sinfully). I was grateful when she allowed me to trace all my writings with a pen she provided. I felt like a kindergarten kid (look Mom, I traced.) She examined my documents for about 5 silent minutes and started this lightening fast blurry chopping sequence. I was told to wait for few minutes for my “permission certificate for the test.”
Sounds like fun. I wonder why China hates ballpoints.
