DMV is going DOWN.

So, as I previously mentioned, I had this fix-it ticket for not telling the CA DMV that I had moved. Ok, easy to fix, right? Yeah. I did the online change of address thing, and then I even got an Oregon drivers license. Easy-peasy. Except now, nobody wants to sign off my ticket. Uhm… yeah. The traffic officer at the police station wouldn’t do it, the Oregon DMV wouldn’t do it (ok so that one made me mad, cause the lady I talked to at the court said that the OR DMV would sign off on it when I got my license. grrrr!)… so Portland is a good 400 miles away from the court I’m supposed to show up at.

So at this point my options appear to be:
1) Take an unpaid day off work, drive to the court for my court date and be like “Yo, I took care of it” and drive back.
2) Send in a check for $150 for my ticket since it hasn’t been signed off.

Option 2 would be cheaper. But ya know, I really don’t want to pay the ticket because I did everything everybody said I was supposed to do.

DMV, CHP, Yreka County… you guys are going DOWN. *grumble*

My Streak Has Ended

Jeff: So what’d you do for the last 5 hours?
Me: Oooh, I went to the doctor, he poked my eyeball and said I have a sinus infection so I got medicine.. went to my mom’s house… had pizza… played DS… got pulled over.. you know.
Jeff: ……… oy.

It was an unmarked cop car! And I swear I thought it was a 35 zone. Going 40 in a 35 is acceptable. However, 40 in a 25 is… well, not. They were looking for a stolen black car. I was driving a.. not stolen black car. So after some polite conversation (including a pop quiz on who the car belongs to), he handed me back my stuff (.. well, my license and Jeff’s registration) and told me to slow down. YAY NO TICKET!

But still. I have been tainted :(
