Just F'in look it up...

This morning I finally made it to BMV to renew my registration.

I had planned to take care of this online but G-Man's and CareBear's cars - registered to me for insurance rate purposes - needed an E-check this year.


CareBear was very cooperative, being female and all. She took care of hers a month ago - in plenty of time for me to renew online.


G-Man however.....well, he had a brake light out for well over a month now.


I have been bugging him for weeks to get it taken care of.


Last weekend I finally withheld some important news until he had the light fixed...

Brake light working???? Ok, then, here's the mail you been waiting for...
That left a week for him to get the E-Check done...
No time Monday...
Too Busy Tuesday...
Working out Wednesday...
Gotta focus on the game Thursday....
Friday....I'll do it tomorrow...
Only if you are going to be there at 8:00 AM when they open...
But I ....

You do not have football....

It's the only day I can sleep in...

Then I guess you better get there now....

So...here I am at the BMV office...noone in line, this could be quick...

Ma'm it says here these two cars need e-checked.

I had it done.

Where's your paperwork.

Shit...I left it home...

You need your paperwork.

Can't you look it up - see if it shows up on line?

No...you need to go get your paperwork.

No way...that's going to be a problem. I mean, I can get it for G-man's car - it is sitting on my desk... but CareBear had hers e-checked over a month ago in another town. And she is out of town and I do not have her paperwork...

Sorry, I need....

Try to look it up...

It won't show ...

Just try....(before I feel the need to get loud)

Ok (deep sigh)...it says here you are all set. That will be $163.40.

Wow....how much of that goes toward your salary?

Do the Holy Sisters of the BVM run your BMV? (Maybe they just played with the order of the letters.) That could explain why they tried to make your life miserable when you went to renew the registration. (They didn't slap your hand with a ruler when you didn't have the e-check, did they?)

I dread the DMV. I have to go there next Tuesday. For some reason or another they stopped doing appointments. So now I have to go wait in line for hours just so I can talk to a person just like your person. Ugh!
