A reason you do things ahead of time.

The journey to obtain a passport. Someone needed a passport. 

Go to Post Office. Find out they need a birth certificate. A copy of the birth certificate is not allowed, they need an original birth certificate. 

It is Friday and a trip to the Health Department is required. But since it is Friday they decide probably better to go on Monday.

Makes an appointment for Monday at the Post Office to obtain the passport. Appointment time 9:45 AM.

Show up Monday at the Health Department, before they open at 8 AM. The third in line. Make it to the Clerk and the machine is down. The Health Department checks Headland to see if they are open and sends the person to Headland.

Arrive in Headland at the Health Department at 8:30 AM. Only to find a sign on the door that Headland Health Department is not open on Monday.

So they take a trip to Abbeville.

The lady in Abbeville ask why the person drove all the way to Abbeville just to get a birth certificate. So the journey so far is explained.

The person has an appointment in Dothan. They arrive as the clock ticked appointment time, 9:45 AM.

All information is now accurate all documents in order. The persons photograph is taken and then the person is asked if paying by cash or debit card. But either way the person has to get a Money Order.

So they go to the line in the post office to get a money order.

Stand in line until the next available window. When they arrive at the Clerk was told she did not do money orders had to wait on the other lady.

Then back to the line.

Finally arrives at the "other" lady and gets a money order. A $ 160.00 money order for a passport. Of the $ 160.00 the cost for the digital photograph was $ 15.00.

Back into the original office and the money order is delivered. The person is told your passport should arrive in 4 - 6 weeks.

Now everyone was nice. Everyone was super helpful just nothing was falling place.

A reason you do things ahead of time.

When told of this journey the conversation began as "you know why I do things ahead of time?" Then the journey was explained.

Start ahead of time...do not procrastinate.
