The joys of small populations

The line just got shorter
 

Tor (a Norwegian in England) writes about The (small) pleasures in belonging to a small population. He wrote:

"And the queue was 5 people when I arrived - it took all of 5 minutes until I could walk out the door with his passport."

I can beat that, anytime I go to the Swiss embassy here in Athens I rarely see another visitor. Sometimes there is one person waiting or just finishing up. And the last time I went there, the lady at the office remembered my name even though it had been about 8 months since I've been there before.
