Hello everyone. I just went out for my guitar lesson this morning, and the County sheriff had this road check thing and nailed me for overdue registration (my second ticket after a bum headlight five years ago). The thing that really ticks me off is that I keep an eye on my oil, my gas mileage, etc etc but the inspection comes around just once a year so I more or less forget about it and leave it up to the DMV or whoever to send me the reminder in the mail. Reeeeaaal sweet: We have this inCREDibly stupid mail carrier that regularly leaves our mail all over town (or so our neighbours have said on numerous times) and on a regular basis we get our neighbour's mail as well. The Postmaster has admitted that they've had many complaints about this particular carrier but nothing's ever done about her.. And no offense to people like this, but when you try to talk to her she just gives you completely blank, empty stare. She's not a temp, either - full time village carrier. Sheesh.. So, two things are under my skin right now: 1. The incompetence of people who are supposed to do their job ("Neither rain nor sleet nor hail can stop the mail... unless your carrier's as dumb as a rock.") 2. The ticket, obviously, which is problem since my finances are already in a bit of a crunch, to boot delivered by this snotty officer who acted like he's doing me the favour. I have a question: For you that live in NY, how much does a ticket like this cost?
