    OH dear. You guys may use my address to license your cars in Oregon. It’s much easier here, yes?

    Exactly!!

    I always wonder at those who want to put the government in charge of anything truly important… I mean, have they never dealt with “civil servants” - most of whom are neither civil, nor serving?

    Granted - there will always be the exception to the rule - but for the most part, dealing with indolent, lazy “it’s not my job to help you and besides, I’ve got job security” types is enough to drive anyone mad… to be schlepping the offspring along throughout all of it must just intensify the effect!

    I’m so sorry you spent your day fighting to get this done only to come up empty.
    Let’s just hope that karma (whathaveyou) catches up with Miss “youcould’vetoldmethatthefirst3times” and she gets stuck trapped in a TSA loop at the airport! raspberry

    (((hug)))

    And no… you didn’t offend me.  The fact that you went through all of that offends me.

    Ok. That sucks and I totally know that feeling! But I may or may not have peed my pants laughing at this post, Flinger!

    I am always more and more floored (and pissed off) by people’s lack of responsible behavior. That bitch should totally have gone through everything with you at once! What an ass! And I thought my concierge was irresponsible.

    THIS is why I avoid—at all costs—taking my children anywhere alone.

    Hell yes. This post is the best example I’ve ever seen. Government in charge of anything is a clusterfuck waiting to happen.

    Oh girl, I hear you.  Tried to change my name at Social Security once.  Almost had to go to court over it.

    WHAT is wrong with those people?  Do they like to torture us?  Maybe they should just all switch careers and become dominatrixs’, because if anyone truly wanted to be treated that badly I am sure they would pay someone to do it.

    I am so sorry you had this experience.

    AMEN!

  • April 3, 2008

    You could not have stated it more eloquently, my friend.

  • April 3, 2008

    Too Right!

    Amen

    and well said.

    I have a theory about government employees. Some are helpful and kind and others? I SWEAR they enjoy F*cking with people and exerting the small power that they have to make their lives less miserable.

    Try going with a “certificate of live birth” as issued in GERMANY to those of us Army brats out there. Their pantys get in a tight little wad then…

    I am sure that they search the deepest trenches of hell for those employees…

    Maybe that is where I should start looking to hire.

    OH MY GOSH. I think I could PEE i’m laughing so hard. But I can’t yell at my kid for doing it, so I probably shouldn’t do it myself. lol

    Crying.  I am crying from laughter.  If my laptop is ruined from the SPEW of my soda pop…you’re worth it girl.  How the heck are you?  Are you going to Blogher?  Have I asked you this 500 times?

    I couldn’t agree MORE!  ARRRRRRRRRRGH!

    I’ve been wanting to do a post about universal health care…this is inspiring me!

    The DMV in NJ told me they could not accept my forms of ID because the name on my original, stamped, birth certificate (maiden) did not match the name on my passport (married).  I should note that my married name also appeared on the NJ driver license I was there to renew - clearly they had accepted my ID in the past.  After blinking 487 times while trying VERY hard not to shout expletives, I asked what I should do next.  She actually suggested I contact my town of birth to have them update my birth record and bring the revised birth certificate (with my married name on it) back to her!  No amount of blinking kept the very loud comments about her intelligence back after that.
