DMV Bullshit

My Old Plate: WTFLOL

My Old Plate: WTFLOL

Most people that know me know of my license plate as well. It's kinda funny. I bought it on a whim, considering it passed the online availability test... truthfully I didn't even expect it to arrive in the mail. They filter everything going out to make sure it's still OK. So it passed 2 checks to make it to me. BTW... the one I used to have and am referring to was WTFLOL (if you really don't know, it's "what the fuck, laugh out loud"), see the pic.

Imagine my surprise recently to receive a set of license plates in the mail from the DMV... Hmm... I didn't register any new cars recently. I hope no one is using my identity or anything. There was also a letter enclosed... it read something to the effect of "someone complained about your plate. we reviewed it and agreed. here are some new plates. send us your old ones in 30 days or else. oh, and you can order a new set of custom plates at no charge (duh, fuckstick, I already paid once, you better not charge me again) or file for a refund." You can click here to see the actual letter.

Now on to the bullshit... I call shenanigans on this for two reasons. First, if my plate made it through the online test and a second verification before mailing, you shouldn't be able to take it away. If the DMV doesn't know it's "bad" then how many other people will give a shit? Secondly, who the fuck takes the time to complain about a license plate?! I actually have a theory on this, but I won't bother getting into it...

My New Plates: SRSLY

What the fuck is with this country though? "Activist groups" are complaining about damn commercials during the superbowl. Corporations are being chastised for things that stuck up douchebags can't find humor in. And anyone can apparently complain about a fucking license plate - that they probably had to ask someone what it meant anyways - and have it pulled. It's not like you have to see the same plate all day every day and it just infuriates you to follow it all of the time... people need to get other hobbies or something.

So what do I do? Well, I get a new plate, that's what I do. I considered quite a few replacements... but I did eventually make a decision...
