The wonderful, stupendous, marvelous, DMV...
I knew I should not have expected things to go smoothly with the Dept of Motor Vehicles. I applied for a vanity plate...sent in the 2 forms with my check like they asked. I pick up my mail yesterday and see an envelope from the DMV. Before opening it, I foolishly think that they have processed my request and are telling me it will be sent out soon. Instead I open it 2 find both of my forms returned along with my check, along with this note:
Our records indicate your old vehicle information. Your new vehicle information has not yet been updated in our system.
Please hold your application for 4-6 weeks from the validation date on your permanent registration and at that time please call us at (860) 263-5154 to be sure your new information is in our computer.

In the words of my avater.....WTF !! Maybe I am naive or clueless but how the hell does it take 4-6 weeks to make a change in their computer from a 2005 Acura TL to a 2007 Mustang GT convertible ???? I could write a small computer application for my business customers at work in that amount of time.
Oh they were kind enough to send me out a pre-addressed envelope for when I mail my forms and check BACK to them again. Not pre-stamped of course.
I never thought I would see the day when the DMV did not accept money. I mean why couldn't they just cash the check and keep the forms on file ??
On the bright side...they have reserved my choice of plate for me...WLD.PNY. Maybe it will be ready by the time I buy 2015 Mustang GT convertible...
