the following is a true story. lol
I phoned our Department of Motor Vehicles today to check on the status of our vehicle registration. We submitted the paperwork 3 weeks ago and have yet to receive those ridiculous stickers that somehow give us permission from the STATE to allow us to drive. Wow. Whose arse do I get to kiss.
The WORKER looked up our information and it showed no new updates. He informed me “these things are taking 3 weeks now to process”. I said in the past this was never more than a 7-10 day process.
“We are backlogged,” he said.
“You needed to include that in the paperwork you sent to us in the mail,” I said.
“Hello? Are you still there?” I asked.
No further response.
“Are you a person or a computer?” I asked.
“Since you won’t respond to my statement, how about you answer this one. Given it has been close to 3 weeks since submitting the paperwork, what happens if the registration expires and the stickers have not arrived?”
“You will have to get a trip permit,” he said.
“But how will I get to the DMV then to get the trip permit if it becomes illegal to drive? We only have the one car.” I said.
“Wow, you aren’t allowed to speak much are you?” I asked. “Ok, so if it expires, I will just play this phone call for the officer then if I am pulled over as a result of your red tape.”
“Ma’am, you will not be allowed to drive your car if the stickers do not arrive in time,” he said.
I had had it.
“Listen up you sleeping douche bag, I am not a corporation. I am not dead at sea. And the state does not own me. I am a living being. Now it is MY turn to go silent.” Disconnected the phone.
And you bet I will drive MY car. Freely.
The way we ALL have the right to do.
