In DMV Hell once again?

Received a "Dear Customer" letter from the lepers at the DMV. It
seems my beloved Amphi "has been determined that the Body Type Code
(BTC) M and Body Type (BTM) AMPHI was incorrectly recorded on the
ownership certificate." This is way worse than a "Dear John" letter,
since my real name is actually "John"... but I digress.

The letter goes on to demand the submission ? in person ? to my local
DMV office of the following articles;

1. Ownership Certificate
2. Vehicle Verification (Reg. 343), completed by an authorized DMV
Representative OR a Law Enforcement Officer who has physically
inspected the vehicle.

The letter concludes by saying, "We apologize for any inconvenience
and thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely, A. Holmes
Registration Processing Manager Unit III."

My fine finned friends this is an outrage of epic proportions. This
is a clear case of Amphi discrimination and defamation! Who do these
bureaucratic DMV pansies think they're dealing with? And what on
God's green earth do all those bilging codes really mean? These un-
evolved sloths at the DMV have no right to be stereotyping my Amphi's
body type. There has to be some common decency in the world. And
can you just imagine the look on Law Enforcement Officer Hancuff when
he sees what he has driven 20 miles to verify? Oh, go a bit further
my amphibious amigos, think about when I finally walk into the
retched DMV building... AGAIN... just a little PISSED OFF!!!

A~poda: I have an appointment with Heir Holmes in SS unit III.
DMV Clerk: Yes, please be seated for several hours while I take my
break.
Heir Holmes: Thank you for coming in Mr. Amphipoda.
A~poda: Here are the flippin' documents you demanded, and some
photos, and some TV news clips, and newspaper articles, magazine
articles, and some FREAKING LAKE KELP! IS THIS ENOUGH BLOODLY PROOF
OF AMPHIBIOUS-NESS FOR YOU?!!!!!!

It seems like every year at this time the DMV picks on poor little
Amphi. Think I'm joking... well, search the archives for "DMV"
postings by Amphipoda and read of all my years of misery with these
hapless numbskulls. I'm not dealing with this very well as you can
see. I don't believe I can take much more harassment from those
horrible sphincters at the DMV. I'm clearly at my wits end... but I
have a plan to deliver the wrath of the Amphi Underworld unto these
pathetic low life DMV scavengers. I will bilge where no man has
dared bilged before. Stay tuned my fine finned friends.

Amphipoda & Ed Price,
I didn't register my Amphi until I had it drivable. Why go through
the pain until you have to. I actually drove it down to the main DMV
joint after being told by outlying places that it was too weird for
them. I stashed the car a couple of blocks away from the place
because I was told it was some HIGH OFFENSE to drive an unregistered
car down there and there would be Hell to pay if I did. Anyway, after
getting blown off by a couple of the usual comatose DMV employees, I
found a young man who was really amused by the Amphicar idea. He gave
me the preliminary permit and told me to bring the car in and come
right to the head of the line and he would get right on it. I did and
he did. In fact, he walked the car through the whole deal including
the physical inspection and the boat registration. I was sure lucky
to find that guy. Of course, since I bought the car in September of
last year and was registering it in March of this year, the great
state of California made my registration retroactive all the way back
to September and charged me accordingly. What a system.
