Offically a Tarheel

I am not abdicating UNC Chapel Hill, but I have passed my driver's license test. I am now official a resident of North Carolina. If you have never been to the DMV let me tell you that you need to avoid that place. Up until now I have had a pretty decent experience with Ohio's DMV. I grew up in a small town, so it wasn't that crowded. In Toledo I found an office that was pretty empty and in Columbus if you went into the "sketchy" part of town, the lines moved fast. Here in NC though, it was rough, I guess Wake county only has two offices for driver's licenses. So 400,000 people per office.

After waiting for 2 hours and having to deal with them being short staffed and DMV lunch breaks I finally go take my test. ACES BABY ACES. I missed two questions but they were tricky, I have never taken a test that seemed like it wanted you to fail it. One lady in front of me has failed it three times now.

After The Wife had to bring me our wedding license because nothing I own has my middle name on it. For some strange reason North Carolina freaks out over middle names. "You have to have it. It decreases fraud. You have to have it." I thought the opposite, if don't know it how can you verify that you are me?

Finally I get my license and now the fun begins, I need new tags. As you can see above I can get personal tags. They are much cheaper here and why not. Lets take a look at some of my favorite that are still out there.

I was thinking news whore, but it was too many letters and didn't convert well when abbreviated.

Come on, we have all wanted to kill a hobo, I'm just wanted to put it on a plate.

My personal favorite. It's true on so many levels.

Well not for me, but I think it would be pretty sweet.

It's sad, I could do this all day.

So what is your middle name?

And if I could just get your Social Security number and mother's maiden name while you're at it too...

Well my middle name is... Hey wait a second!

DCZ, tried... it was "not allowed"

AaronG said...

what about AZZMAN? or ASMAN? or BUTKIS (after the football player of course)?

I remember when I bought new plates in Ohio I tried this out and actually got beotch through the system, but personalized tags were hella expensive, so I opted for standard plates.

Hmm, I think that next to last plate may be slanderous. Even if it is true. ;-)

J Dog said...

It's not slander if it's true.

I did a post on personalized plates in Kentucky, I tried a ton of acronyms used in IM and they all passed. LMFAO!
