Alleged scam is urban legend

This is a scam that can be done anywhere: retail, wholesale, any location. Or so the story goes.

Allegedly it happened to a person who had purchased items at a Wal-Mart. But, according to snoops.com, this reported scam is nothing more than an urban legend.

The dreaded DMV

 

I’ve been dreading today all weekend.

Why?

I have to go to the DMV in Olathe to renew our vehicle registrations.

It’s my own fault. I could have mailed them in but with granddaughter Alexandra in town, I forgot and missed the mail-in date deadline.

I wanted to do it online and use my credit card and would have but each vehicle needs a pin number in order to do that. And as luck would have it, just two of our three vehicles have that pin number. And when you use a credit card, you pay a “convience” fee for each vehicle as well as a processing fee. So I figured since I had to go to the DMV to renew the registration on the un-pinned vehicle I might as well save the extra fee money and take care of all three at once today.

Last year, it wasn’t a bad experience. But since the state went to a new computer system that was supposed to make it even better, well, the waiting time has become worse — a lot, lot worse — to the point that they turn people away.

So, we’ll see how it goes. I’ll try to secure a time via the website. I’m sitting here waiting for 7:30 to try and secure my spot.

Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how it goes!
