today was my return trip to the DMV to fix the fact that my last trip led to a driver's license that read "Drobertson."
and to pay my registration fee.
and to figure out why they sent me a "suspension" notice in the mail telling me that i don't have insurance coverage.
turns out the DMV doesn't take care of the suspension notice, and i have to take care of that separately, and so i paid my fee, and left without new stickers- called the number to try to figure out why they think i don't have insurance (that's figured out) but it will be another week before the paperwork gets straightened out. so another week of driving with expired tags, and hoping that i don't get pulled over.
of course while i'm taking care of all of this- i'm sitting in the parking lot with my car turned off WITH THE LIGHTS ON!!!! and my car battery dies. i look up, and there is a AAA guy parked right in front of me. do i have AAA? no. But i go over, and say nicely, "I don't have AAA, but can i pay you to jumpstart me?" he says no, but that he'll do it for free. i tip him the only cash i have on me, $4. and go on my way.
i must have had some karma for the fact that i was nice to people today at the DMV when i wanted to be like, "Drobertson, does that sound like a real name?."
