    What are they(the staff) training for? I would guess ” to move slower!’ It’s already silly that an appointment is required and if you’re five minutes late. you are consider “a walk in.”
    Do away with the appointment and have everyone take a number. And furthermore, ” open a line for Kupuna any time of the day until closing!’
