Okay...So I found out via mail on Wednesday that my driver's license has been suspended.
Last JUNE (yes, LAST June, almost a YEAR ago), I got a photo-radar ticket, given to me by a process-server who knocked on my door at 7 in the morning. SEVEN A.M. ~ NOBODY knocks on your door at 7am unless something is terribly wrong. (Last time someone did that, it was my neighbors three years ago telling me they chased a peeping tom away from my bedroom window.) Okay, whatever, I paid the $189 ticket for the "red light violation." Meanwhile, this peeping tom is probably still at large. Go after THAT FUCK instead of someone who just happened to be on the wrong side of the line at a yellow light. Jeez-o-pete.
So I PAID THE TICKET, but apparently I owed money to the city for the process server. $95!!! Nobody informed me of this charge, or I would have tried to fight it. SUPPOSEDLY they mailed me the alleged "bill" for this. Huh. FUNNY how they HAVE MY FUCKING ADDRESS TO SEND THE ASSPACKER OVER HERE TO GIVE ME THE TICKET but they can't seem to get me the invoice to PAY THE FUCKING PROCESS SERVER CHARGE. What a racket. So now I gotta go down to the court to pay the $95 (or talk to the judge and get him to waive it, ha ha), AND, I have to physically go to the DMV to pay a reinstatement fee PLUS something they call an "age appropriate" application fee. What the fuck is THAT shit? "Age appropriate?" What? Do they give you a discount if you're over a certain age, like the "early bird specials" at restaurants? Talk about discrimination. Asses.
Anyway, Thursday and Friday I drove illegally to work and back, all the while making sure I was obeying ALL traffic laws and just being generally paranoid.
Monday, I get to waste 1/2 day's vacation going to get bloodwork and get all this legal bullshit taken care of. B/F has the day off and agreed to chauffeur me all over the place to get me legal again. OH, the joy.
At this point, I'll feel lucky if I don't die on the table next week.
Hope you're all having a good weekend!
