BAG Day Postponed
Unfortunately. When the Mrs transferred from the Army Reserve to the Regular Army, somebody's dog apparently ate her pay records for 2007, to include her W-2. So we had to file an extension until we can get it.
And until I get all my travel/PCS money from the Army, I don't have any free cash.
Fuck The Department of Licensing
My Audi's tags expire this month. The Mrs and I are planning to buy an SUV to replace it (much better for hauling kids & their friends around), but weren't sure if we'd get it by the end of the month, so I went online to renew my tags.
Much to my joy, I discovered that, back in 1997, the Legislature had
created a new way to shake down the taxpayers thoughtfully created an new opportunity for me to enrich my home state. [/sarcasm] Seems that every 5 years, they require you to get new plates, not just tags for your vehicle. Nevermind that your current plates are perfectly serviceable, you still have to get new ones. All this for just $20 (for something that I'm sure costs the state less than $5), on top of the usual fees and taxes associated with renewing your tags.
Even better, for an additional $20, you can even keep the same plate number you had before!
Fuck you people. Guess I'm going SUV shopping this afternoon.
