I can't speak for the DMV where you live, but DMV employees have to put up with a lot of ^%$#. Foreigners with fake documents, people with warrants,
people that refuse to bring the proper ID after being told 2-3 times.
They're usually understaffed and underpaid.
Now, I still think that doesn't give DMV employees the right to treat their customers like garbage -- but when you see the dregs of society on a daily
-- you get pretty callous.
The biggest problem DMV employees have is the "entitlement" attitude of many Americans. People today simply don't like being told "No." No, you can't
get a duplicate license with the only supporting paperwork is a police report your wallet was stolen. No, you can't register your vehicle if someone
else's name is on the title, even if it is your sister. Yes, you DO have to take that driving test, even IF your husband is military.
Not trying to ruin your rant ... I've been in your shoes before! I just thought I'd add a little context
EDIT TO ADD:
I don't work for a DMV, I just happen to know a few people that do. They all live paycheck to paycheck due to the cost of living here. Front line DMV
employees are considered "entry level". There is job security (we'll always need a DMV) -- so you'll see older people that have retired but come back
to the workforce to supplement their retirement.
None of them get a pension, but a really crappy 401k. In comparison, my 401k from a private employer was MUCH better. The only advantage they have
(maybe not for long?) is their health insurance is cheaper than private sector.
