Believe it or not, trying to reregister my California Drivers License led to my finding out that, the State of Vermont has put a hold, because of a problem that occurred in 1980!!And, although a speeding ticket was involved, IT HAD BEEN PAID.
But the problem was, apparently, there was a LATE PROCESSING FEE due, that I was never informed of, and today, nearly 30 years later, it now requires 70 bucks to clear it. Amazingly, the people at the DMV gladly told me this was the Taxpayer's dollars at work for the new Homeland Security System, which allows states to share databases. Interesting isn't it? While the terrorists can rent a car and blow us to smitherens, the kind State of Vermont is using our tax dollars to find debts (probably not even legitimate) that are decades old.
When I asked the worker how she felt about such harassment, her comment was: Well, at least it provides us Job Security.
I had to laugh.And, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will I drive through Vermont, or ever buy Ben and Jerry's icecream (sorry Ben & Jerry), take it up with your local DMV.
