I just checked the mail. I am now laughing so hard my teeth may fly out.
As many of you may recall, back in February we registered Darby as non-operational due both my inability to live and our being way broke at the time. When Kirsten filed the renewal, there was some confusion over the insurance; but it was finally determined that a non-operational vehicle didn't need to be covered. Darby sat, being started occasional to keep the fluids moving and the engine alive, until we got the funds together to get me back on the road. Again, when Kiri filed the paperwork at AAA's DMV counter, she took care of the insurance at the same time. I'm legal again, and enjoying life behind the wheel.
Well, today there were two pieces of mail from the fine folks at Dullards, Morons, and Vagabonds
. Each was addressed to both of us, because we're both listed as owners. Open the first:
IMPORTANT: YOUR VEHICLE REGISTRATION IS SUSPENDED EFFECTIVE: 05/23/11
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? I know for a fact we restarted the insurance on Darby, I have the bloody insurance cards in the truck! I start imagining another ordeal with the DMV and having to scrap our two-car plan for Reno. Muttering about the bureaucrats of the City of Dis, I open the second envelope expecting a duplicate form for the other owner. Instead I see:
IMPORTANT: YOUR VEHICLE REGISTRATION IS REINSTATED EFFECTIVE:
I looked. Both letters were generated on August 4th. Oddly, both were mailed on August 10.
This is your government at work. Hail Eris!
