The line was about 6 deep in front of me and moving nowhere fast.  I waited patiently and about 10 minutes later when I was halfway through the agent at the desk called out my name and handed me my keys after a quick glance at my drivers license.  I was relieved.

The Volvo S60 T5 was a sweet upgrade too…
