: "Terrible. Currently I’ve been in here since 11:30 pm and I’m still in the lobby. And on top of that, there’s four folks ahead of me and one who came in after me that needs more attention than I do. This place is terrible. My Third experience here and my first for myself and every time I’ve had issues and 4 plus hours of wait. Folks are rude too.. makes sense why rude people are a fan of this place. " - Duston
