You know in 34 years of driving I have had only 2 sort of bad and one bad experiences across 4 states at the DMV, and 2 of them were just long lines and not enough clerks.  Now the Maryland DMV really, really sucked.  Everyone seemed to be on break until 15 minutes before they closed, and since they had to service people who were already there before they could go home all of a sudden a hoard of clerks came out of the back to process everyone waiting.

How does this DMV work? Here we go to the county office and pick up new license plates and tags, go to the dept of public safety for driver license or state ID.

My favorite DMV moment was when I went to register a used car I'd bought from another individual and they wouldn't let me use the emissions test the prior owner had coincidentally obtained about a month earlier because I "didn't pay for it." This payment requirement wasn't listed anywhere on their website or anywhere else, of course. I think they just thought it was implied by the DMV's status as the DMV.

/still did not make any death threats

"Every day she would come home and tell me about those death threats, and I would say 'quit your damn job and let's just move somewhere," he recalls. "She wouldn't do it. She loved her job too much."

Didn't love, but needed.  I fortunately was able to resign/fired from a previous job after threats and threatening behavior and refused a managerial position when I found out I'd be closing the store alone every night.  I'm not a good shot with pepper spray and considering what it takes to get close enough to stab someone with a legally wielded knife I was very worried for my safety.  No thanks, and I resigned.  My future employment prospects are grim as no one wants to hear about it and now I have to sit and spin...

One place for all transportation legal paperwork.  I guess if you like dealing with two places, have fun.

Join the AAA, they have their own DMV service centers at least in California.

I have the must enjoyment imaging your mouth grinning into a super wide and friendly smile as you happily exclaim, "Oh! Extortion! Why didn't you say so?!"

akula: 1) TFA doesn't say the husband was estranged. In fact, it seems to imply the opposite- that the relationship was strong.

2) I've never once been so frustrated and enraged at the DMV (well, in this state we call them revenue offices) that I've threatened the clerks. The paperwork may be a pain in the ass but they're hardly the ones who came up with all this bullshiat.


I've met a few DMV employees who didn't deserve death threats.  VERY few.

It's not the paperwork.  That's not their fault.

It's that they're lazier than the DOT guy sitting in his truck watching the guy standing beside the road leaning on the shovel.

And most of them are utterly incapable of being polite.

And while you actually need to get something done that day, they really couldn't care less.

Add in that they've now closed 4 out of 5 offices in my county, and some of the surrounding counties don't have an office at all any more, and you've got a nightmare.

It used to be that you walked in, and were done in 5 minutes - half an hour if you needed a road test.  Now?  Be sure you've got a couple of hours.  You have to stand in line to get a number to talk to anybody, then you get to sit there and wait.  The numbers are essentially random so you have no idea how far away yours is.  The road test has to be booked online, and I just checked for the fun of it.  First available is two months out.

Oh, and when it was 5 minutes to renew your license?  Everybody had to go to the DMV to do it.  Now you can do it online. 

Lazy farkups.
