If government is the problem, I'm in deep doo-Doo this morning. I purchased an automobile last January, and the dealership arranged the transfer of the registration from my old car to my new car. The hitch was that the registration has an expiration date of 3/29/16. I received a renewal form in the mail with the old vehicle information, necessitating a personal visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Yonkers office of the NY State DMV is across town from my house- the drive is a pain in the ass and parking is even worse. Luckily, the Number 25 bus stops a block from my residence and stops in front of the DMV. I took a government bus to the government Department office. While at the DMV, a very courteous government employee directed me to a self-service kiosk and I was able to obtain a temporary registration and a notice that the new forms would be sent to me via the government postal service. I was in and out of the DMV in less than fifteen minutes. Damn that inefficient government bureaucracy!
I am writing this post in the beautiful government-run Riverfront Library, which is next door to the DMV. Again, I am subject to government tyranny. I subject myself to further tyranny when I board the bus to whisk me back to the east side of the City of Y______.
Such oppression! I've been in thrall to government all morning... and I have to say I'm enthralled.
