Bureaucracy. Grr.  
Paid $40 today to get a NY driver's license. Will need to pay $22.50 to obtain a duplicate title on my vehicle from PA, plus whatever I'll owe a notary to notarize the duplicate request form (it's required). Will then need to pay around another $40+ to get my vehicle registered in NY, and then shell out even more when I go for a NY state inspection.

This whole fee thing is starting to get a tad bit ridiculous.

You go on ahead. I'll catch up when I'm no longer walking funny.

Thanks! If I can make it there before they close, I certainly shall! ^_^* Silly government buildings and their unreasonable hours...

Actually, they can't charge anymore than $3 by law to notarize something.

Oh, that's pretty cool. =) I remember it being more in PA- for a while I seriously considered becoming a notary public, heh!

It's $5 in CT, I think it goes by state.

The fees in CT are even worse -- Jonathan keeps meaning to go to the DMV, and it's something like $66 for a driver's license, PLUS a $40 "testing fee" or something (even if it's just the eye test)... which has to be paid seperately... plus whatever fees he needs for his car itself. Holy crap.

Sheesh! Really makes you wonder what they do with all that money!

I was amused by the NY eye test... read one line of text that even I, with my astigmatism, could read just fine without glasses. PA was a lot stricter- tested you on each eye as well as both eyes, and with both lines of text and object outlines. I just barely passed that one.

Anyway, I'm glad that I passed the eye exam without corrective lenses. I only wear my glasses on rare occasions, so with them on, my depth perception is really skewed. The floor comes up at me; I feel like I'm two feet tall when I'm walking around. ;)

Yikes. I couldn't pass any eye exam harder than "what color is this large object" without my glasses. ; ) They always ask me to try without first. I pull them off, squint, and put them back on again. Heh.

Of course, I'd be legally blind if my vision couldn't be corrected. But I get 20/20-ish with glasses. (Going in for new glasses tomorrow.)

Me too!! I was asked to remove my glasses for a NYS eye exam. When I was 16, I could kinda see without my glasses, so I passed the exam then. Five years later and my eyes had gotten really bad and continue to do so. Anyhow, they line me up, ask me to remove my glasses and told me to read the first line on the chart. I asked where the chart was. They said on the wall. I knew by this time I was going to need to admit I was legally blind without my glasses, so I joked and asked what wall. Not a good joke.
