OK, so maybe making jokes about the DMV is about as original as a character “that’s gonna leave a mark!” when they are hilariously hit upon the with some sort of object that is so big it hurts. But Broad City tackled the subject decently enough on this week’s episode. They did however bring up a very important NYC lifehack that’s worth mentioning in its own post: Yes, you can in fact make a reservation for an appointment at the DMV so you don’t have to wait in a line to figure out which line you have to wait in before you wait in another line.

It’s pretty easy to do: just go here, pick your location and your time and you’re good. Other things you can make an appointment for that will help you skip some lines: Chipotle (order online), Chop’t (Seamless pickup), Grimaldi’s (call in your order and pick it up), Shake Shack (cook it at home). Lines: They’re for suckers.
