In my life, I have had my share of NY DMV tales. (Department of Motor Vehicles)
I have Lived and LEARNED how to get through it all.
So, when my Nephew wrecked his Jeep due to 6 weeks of ignoring my weekly warnings to get NEW tires ASAP..and then "I" spent 70 plus hours finding him a replacement vehicle, having new brakes installed, oil changed, flush radiator, ordering the Buick a bunch of needed, MUCH cheaper parts via Ebay, etc, etc...
I wanted NO part in getting plates on this car. (I wasn't feeling the love, YANO?)
This kid has NEVER been to DMV in his life. It's time to figure it out on your own.
I said to him, "Here is what you NEED to do..Blah Blah Blah Blah. Do ALL of that, and you are gold."
So, instead, the fucking kid ignored everything I said.
And DMV, in their infinite evilness, said Go HOME KID. You ain't gonna get this particular car registered - EVER!
At THAT point he calls me up. I'm off trucking, and I'm having a shitty day. So I yelled at him over phone.."ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?? I told you exactly what to do!"
I said, "Welp, OKAY...it's still do-able. Go to another DMV that is about 50 miles away, DO NOT USE the same paperwork you just had, with all the previous DMV bitch's notes and red ink on it! Throw that THE FUCK away! But Use the old paperwork as a template, copy IT ALL the correct way...but do this OUTSIDE, IN YOUR CAR! Do NOT let them see you with the old paperwork! Then toss out the old stuff. If 'they' see that RED inked paperwork, they will say to themselves. "THIS guy got kicked out of another DMV, lets look really hard at his paperwork and figure out WHY!"
BUT...if you do as I say, this particular DMV is much more laid back. Explain it's your first time, EVER, and they will treat you GREAT!"
And Welp, after 6 hours of hell, he finally listened to me, and Ta-Da! He has a shiny pair of new license plates!
Geeeez! Nobody EVER listens to me.
And now, at this moment in time, my "Give a Damn" is all Busted for this kid.
Don't bother to call me kid, 'cause I ain't answering.
