Being gone 2.5 years and things change a bit. I was caught off guard by this today.
My car registration needs to get “up to date” with the DMV. I tried to do it online, but the system just gives me errors and non-sense. So, yay, time to go visit the DMV.
I tried to schedule an appointment, but waiting over 40 days for the next available slot seemed ludicrous. I can spare the 2-3 hours and just go wait in line, I don’t want to wait nearly two and a half months to save me that much time; that’s just silly.
So, I cleared out my Saturday to go do this — wrong! After checking out several offices on their site and a quick google search, it was revealed to me that the DMV no longer operates on any weekends and they’re closed most fridays as well.
How incredibly dumb.
I have to take off work to go to the DMV.
And while I am not working, I am not getting paid.
And while I’m not getting paid, I’m not paying taxes.
And when I’m not paying taxes, the DMV isn’t getting any funding.
So, due to budget issues, I can now only go to the DMV on days which would continue to hurt their budget. Genius!
A short letter:
I understand times are tough and the Governator is ‘cuttin ur bugets’, but if you’ve only got enough cash to be open 4 days a week, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday would be ideal days. Then people can keep working and paying taxes so you can stay open, yay!
Everyone who has to wait 2-5 hours with ticket in hand after taking off time so you don’t get tax revenues
