If you’ve been following the nonsense I spew here, you know I’ve had a myriad of recent auto difficulties.
Well, the car got repaired, and emission tested – passing, and I submitted the funds, via Internet, to complete the registration, on Tuesday, this week.
My previous experiences with the notarious State DMV are legendary, or at least, annoying. In past years, I always fought tooth-and-nail not to pay registration fees, because I was mostly broke, and (as a libertarian) I deeply resented giving the government money. (I still do.) It’s always been the last thing on my list.
And, historically, I paid the price for my political protests, usually in the form of ‘not current registration’ citations.
In recent years, however, I’ve made an effort to be more responsible, and paid on time, gritting my teeth all the way. Sometimes, mailing in the form the last day of the correct month, then sweating when the tags would arrive to show my vehicle current.
My tags arrived in the mail, yesterday (Thursday)!
I sent the funds by computer Wednesday! ONE DAY TURNAROUND!
Government efficiency!? I’m shocked and impressed.
And now currrent with my car registration.
