There is good news and bad news in this tale of renewing my Missouri license tag.
Someone pulled my year tag off, and so I had to get a new one. I couldn’t find my paid tax receipt, so had to get a new one from the county.
The good news is that the Jackson County Collections Department was courteous and efficient in getting me a paid tax receipt. The bad news was going to the state office building to get the replacement tag.
The lines were long. Most people ahead of me said they had tried to renew online and couldn’t. There were only two people doing renewals. They are nice when you finally get to them. Sometimes only one is available.
If Gov. Matt Blunt thinks this was a good idea and is an example of efficient government, he should come to Kansas City, stand in line himself and see what an awful experience it is.
I used to go to AAA and it took 10 minutes. This experience took two hours.
Citizens shouldn’t be treated this way, and they shouldn’t stand for it any longer.
To top it all off, when I finally got to my car, it had been ticketed for an expired tag!
