I have just about had with the DMV. Crazy beauractic psychos. First I can't get my car insuraed because the registration has expired.. It's only been 6 months since the new registration. I go to the DMV, wait in line for 45 minutes... then she says they can't renew my registration because of outstanding parking tickets. I head to city hall in cambridge; they say I have to visit the one in Boston because it was the "issuing authority"! I go to Boston, too early, but you can do over the phone she says. I call, and pay the bills. She says I will be cleared by 11:30 and gies me a confirmation number. at 12:30, I call to make sure my registration has been released so that I can re-register my car. Oh no, it won't be released until 3:30? Why? I ask, foolishly... The system did not clear you at 11:30. Why? I ask again foolishly. Maybe you didn't pay before 11:30. I did, and here is my confirmation number. Well, sometimes the system does not work the way it's supposed to.

Recognizing the wisdom in her answer, I hang up the phone. I am tamed. I fight or hate the system no more. Too many drones out there protecting and protected by this system. I unclench my fist, and get ready to get my hair cut once more. Without recognizing it, I am well on my journey from dog to monkey, from bark to foolish play.

When I have to deal with this scenario (last time was this past September), I take 2 days off. One full day to spend doing the above, and another day to recover. I have no clue how things work in Morocco - I would think it is either incredibly simple or even worse! I would guess the first, because there are no parking tickets to start with. If you screw up, you get your car towed, and you have to clear it same day. There are no notices, no system that keeps track of your history, of your notices, keeps adding late fees. Second, I guess if you have connections you can get your insurance/registration while you sleep.
