I feel the need to complain somewhere. I had to hand in a form at Walworth Police Station and Southwark Council
. It took 5 minutes with the Council, and 50 minutes at Walworth, and only then because I went to the front of the queue to complain and ask if they could open another booth, and the woman wordlessly took my form and tossed it onto a pile (who knows what will happen to it).
I know they're busy, but people had been waiting well over 2 hours and it was obvious I'd be there that long as well. They didn't turn on the air conditioning and they had no queuing system and people kept pushing in.
If they can reallly only manage one person on the desk, they could at least buy one of those cheap take a number systems so you could go to a shop or something while you waited. Oh, and buy more bloody seats.
