DMV

The folks at the DMV make people crazy. Besides the lines, and the waiting, and the stink, they are just on a mission to see how far they can push a person to the edge of going postal.
Daddy took a few hours off work this morning to go to the DMV to renew and change the address on his license. Easy stuff, right? Just bring in a copy of our lease with our new address on it and they just make the change, right???

NO.

They want a bill from the old house. Why would you want a bill from the old house if we don't live there anymore? We don't have a bill from the old house...
They want a bill from the new house. We don't pay the bills here, everything is included in the rent, that's why we brought a copy of the lease.
But we still need a bill. WE DON'T PAY THE BILLS! IT IS INCLUDED IN THE FUCKING RENT!
Go find a bill.

Do they want us to create a fucking bill? We don't have cable, so no bill there...the utilities are included in the rent...there is nothing else. Why do they have to make things so difficult? A copy of our lease is being used in place of bills in everything, it's what I gave at the Welfare office and they understood, they accepted it with no problem. Why does the DMV have to be so stupid?
Daddy is home now searching for something anything that can be used...they're so stupid.

What if you get a bill from your landlord that shows something...the only problem it still won't have your name on it but it will have the address.

How about telling the DMV to call the welfare office? LOL!
BTW have you heard from them yet?

The DMV is EVIL incarnate.

Do it online. That's how I renewed my license and had the new address change. All I did was pay the $10 with my debit card and you'll get your license in the mail. They just use the old picture on the license.

I have nothing to add positive or negative to your woes today. The DMV is one of those places that is either efficient or devilishly frustrating.

Pass the chips.

I hate the DMV as much as everyone. But I will come to their defense, since these new guidelines, were forced down their throats in the name of security after 9/11.

You should see the "Point System" they have here in NJ. You need to have a minimum of "8 Points worth of Identification" before they will even talk to you.

What about a bank statement instead of a bill. That would most likely satisfy them. If not... a credit card bill perhaps?

Jay- 8 points od i.d??? are you kidding? And I thought this was bad...
