The people who answer the phones at Oregon's Salem DMV office rock

Thanks to my recent misfortunes, I've had to call the Oregon DMV's Salem office several times to make various requests, like asking them to mail me a temporary non-photo driver license to replace the one I lost and having them send me proof of my license status so I could get a California license.

Every time I've called, they've picked up the phone on the first ring, answered with a friendly greeting, and listened carefully as I explained my problem. And each time they've gone out of their way to either fax or mail me the documents I needed as soon as humanly possible, without me even having to ask them to.

Rock on, Oregon DMV. It's not often that I experience such great customer service that I wish I had more excuses to call.
