Held hostage by the BMV

Today I went to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to renew my driver’s license — a little bit late; it was supposed to be done on my birthday. Because of the late fee it turned out I was $10 short of money to pay for the renewal, and I wasn’t allowed to drive away and get more money because I would be driving on an expired license (which they’d already taken away in any case) and it would be illegal. I was forced to call Michael’s father and hang around until he arrived with the ransom money.

Why does this always happen to me?

Also, as documented by my trusty cell phone camera, a funny thing happened on the way to the library.

    I hope your day improves. ardmoreite.com has an article about Oklahoma trying to identify the 200+ John and Jane Does across the state. The article talks about Diana Jane Elmore and has a little info that you dont have on Charley.

    Are you kidding me? Really? Oh, my word, that is (place word here). Geez, at least where I have to go there is a supermarket in the same complex you can go get money. Really? If you were like a fugitive, I think you wouldn’t bother with the whole renewal thing. Honestly, there went a few more of our tax dollars. Special shout out to M’s dad for coming to the rescue! That could have made the day a LOT worse if he hadn’t shown. To end my rant, I’d just like to say AND REALLY, THEY CAN’T CATCH SERIAL KILLERS, BUT SURE AS HECK THEY’LL TAKE YOUR DRIVERS RIGHTS! Gad.

      Did anyone get the fingerprints?

    Maybe the trunk hand’s fingerprints will match those of a missing person 😉

    Nobody likes going to DMV.
    I was just looking at your updates for today, and I saw Tatyana Smirnov’s case. I think you might of made a mistake with the place she vanished from. You have it as Islamadora, but I think it’s Islamorada. There’s a famous fish market there where you can watch them feed sharks by hand or even a guy will put a fish in his teeth by its tail and lean off the dock and the shark will grab the fish right out of his mouth.
    YOu can watch all that while you eat all kind of seafood.

      Islamorada? Isn’t that where they serve the fried gator tail ice cream?
