reasons not to love the DMV, or as we call it, the “license bureau,” and that time that I drank a margarita and did mostly nothing.

Weekends in summer. What’s not to love? I’m happy to report that we spent our weekend doing mostly nothing. Friday night we had a choice: drive an hour right after work {in rush hour} on {very} short notice to go to a family party, or do as planned: nothing.
We chose the latter. I am thrilled with our decision.
As much as I would love to see my family {most of whom I have not seen since Christmas}, it was less than twenty-four hours notice and we live about an hour south of where the party was to take place.
Plus we were able to make this delicious meal and enjoy eating it outside {with an awesome margarita in my beautiful new glass from my in-real-life friend, Angela, over at the Preppy Polka Dot}!
Saturday my only plan of attack was to head to the DMV, or as we like to call it here in the O-H, the License Bureau {apparently people from other states find this to be amusing}. It was my top priority to first, get my car title changed back to an Ohio title; then to get my vehicle registered with the great state of Ohio and purchase some plates; followed by a nice pose for a little picture for what I like to call my Ohio drivers license.
Of those things the only thing that actually happened was getting the title changed over.
Now I’d like to go on record with a letter to the great state of Ohio via my blog.
Dear State of Ohio License Bureau and Title Agency:

There are many things to which I can overlook. First being the sketchy area in which your offices are located. No biggie. I can look past that {um, I’ve lived in Buffalo.. where everything’s sketchy}. I can also overlook the fact that I was probably the only person in the 30 minute line that showered. Thank goodness it was only 90-degrees out. I can also overlook the grumpiness of your staff. I would be grumpy if I had to deal with those people on my Saturday too.

I, however, cannot forgive the lack of resources on your website. Or the fact that I was there for two hours and all I got was an $18 title to my car and a “please go to the other license bureau” note. Super-de-duper.

xoxo and forever yours,

Rachel at It’s a Hero

PS. At least my boyfriend made you laugh by asking to buy your Tim Couch clock.
Ok, now that THAT’S off my chest, I’ll show you how I spent the remainder of my Saturday:

It’s cool. You’re allowed to be jealous.

That being said, I hope you all had an awesome weekend! And here’s to another weekend in just five short days!

Oh my word, I hate the DMV. I'll spare you my own stories, because if I got started I would write a book!

I always have to go to the DMV on Saturdays, the people aren't rude at the one by my house but the lines are crazy. Even for a small town, its always crowded…..

luckily havnt dealt with them in about 10 years. i do everything via online. however, since moving to the city i now have to participate in the grand ohio ripoff known as ECHECK.

since moving back to ohio has anyone told you you dont have til the end of your bday month to renew your tags now? you get a penalty of like 25 bucks or something after your actual bday date.

its pretty awesome.
