D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

Man, racism is so freakin' retarded. And Michigan is full of this crap.

I got freaking HOSED at the DMV today ... a place that magically employs a lot of white people.

First, I get there at 6:15 pm (they cllose at 7pm on Wednesdy) and tell the clerk I need a Michigan Drivers License. She says " We don't give driving tests after 6pm. Sorry." I am like.... "uh.... there are people taking the test right now?" She says, "nope, sorry. But, I can get your other paperwork finished so you can just come in and leave next time you can get your license really fast."

So, my paperwork gets "started." I use this term loosely because I think she just went in the back room to go drink some coffee. Anyway, when she gets back, another clerk says - to the first clerk.... "we give driving tests until 6:30. Oh wait, it's now 6:31 ... sorry."

Snap.

Okkkaayyyyyyy, so I'm like - "hey, I have a valid out of state license, is that valid to just get a Michigan one?" The original clerk goes ask the manager, comes back and says "I guess so."

Okkayyyyyyy!!! Progress in whitey-land. Anyway, one thing you need for a license in Michigan is to prove you live in Michigan. Which is actually more trouble than its worth. I haven't got any utility bills yet. All i have are credit card statements. One from Wells Fargo (a well known bank), one from BankOne (JP Morgan Chase) and one from Juniper Bank (I guess, a bank?). But, the catcher is that these are all credit statements. My actual normal checking is still based in Indiana because BankOne in Indiana is NOT BankOne in Michigan, and transferring accounts is nary impossible. So, I haven't set up a Michigan checking account yet.

I am turned down for the D/L because I don't have a statement from a "bank." I freaking have statements from credit card banks, which don't count. What. the. hell. One "statement" from the bank still has the freakin' new cards attached to it with my bloody name on it and the Michgan Address printed @ the bottom. I have a letter from Juniper telling me they went ahead and increased my credit (I guess they did this when I updated my address? I dunno.

Anyway, I get the same message from the manager. No "bank letter" then no drivers license. I am livid. What the hell does he want? I can drive him home and serve him a cold beer? Shiittttttt.

I make a demand to the manager that he write on a piece of paper stating that BankOne, Juniper Bank, and Wells Fargo are not qualified banks and their statements will not suit their needs. He refuses. But, I don't go anywhere. So he finally scribbles on a paper that "a bank statement is necessary." Talk about asshole. He mitigates his formal invovlement with this by giving me garbage. Now, the whole DMV has stopped, because I decided to do my little negotiation with the manager right in front of where you take your pictures for licenses. People just don't want to come near.

I'd rather the fucker just call me a chink and tell me go to fold clothes at my dad's laundry. This subvert racism sucks.

Re: D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

oh, I guess I should add while I was waiting in line, I could have sworn that I heard someone else get a D/L with just a discover card bill and a library card (plus other valid picture ID)


You should also hear how the other people were treated...... just complete apathy and general disgust. The indian couple that was next to me was also having problems, a German guy (obvously due to his cool accent) was hosed and told his German Ausweiskarte didn't prove his identity and needed to be translated. It's a freakin' ugly as sin michigan Driver's license. What do these people want?

But, they were trying everything (even calling a clerk at home) to settle a problem where this white guy was having problems registering his truck. Meh.

Re: D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

Michigan hates you, but your gas tank loves you....*

Howz about taking them a pay stub? From their website:

What documents are acceptable?

Generally, one document that shows an applicantís name and Michigan residence address is sufficient. Post office boxes cannot be used in lieu of a residence address. Examples include utility bills, bank statements, insurance policies, valid student IDs from a Michigan school, pay stubs and government documents (tax assessments, tax receipts, professional licenses). Cell phone bills are not acceptable.

Applicants may present any one of the following:

Valid student ID from a Michigan school, college, or university displaying a Michigan address
Michigan school, college, or university records containing the studentís name and Michigan address such as tuition invoices, receipts, class schedules, report cards, or transcripts
Paycheck or pay stub with the name and address of the employer (please provide the phone number of the employer if it is not listed on the document)
A gas, water, sewer, electricity, land-line phone, or cable television bill (NOTE: cell phone bills are not acceptable)
Bank statement
Life, home, auto, or health insurance policy (No insurance binders or registration certificates. Please provide the phone number of the insurance agent if it is not listed on the document.)
Mortgage document or rental lease agreement (please provide the phone number of the leasing agency or landlord for rental lease agreements)
Government documents issued by federal, state, or local units of government (such as tax assessments, tax receipts, professional licenses)

Re: D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

so they ended up not giving you a Michigan license. that's fucken ridiculous. you should go throw some bricks at the DMV windows late at night. and then splash gasoline and burn the fucker down.

i was in your shoes once needing to replace my initial license with the state i was living in (Florida). but they were nice and really quick. took 20 minutes i believe. move outa KKKville.

im not much of a fan of the midwest. it's too isolated and wayyy too segregated.

Re: D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

Well, if this helps you out at all... I'm an illegal resident of NH right now... I still have a Maine license, a Maine registration, but my insurance is in NH. NH doesn't even require car insurance though.... I'm trying to play it out till January, when all my Maine stuff ends.... I just hope I don't get nabbed by the PoPo.
I tried to get a license and a registration, but when I went to the DMV, they told me they needed my BIRTH CERTIFICATE, including bills and all that crap you had to supply as well. So, for the time being, I roll with Maine plates and reg.... even though I've lived in NH since the beginning of March.

Oh, and I'm caucasian.

Good luck with everything though. I hope they don't give you as much shit the 2nd time as they did the 1st.

Re: D#(@)!!! I hate MICHIGAN

Sounds like you were at the Secret of State office. *Don't worry, no matter what your race, everyone gets treated like a second-class citizen there. *You've now officially been initiated into this great state of ours.

To continue your initiation, I would suggest a nice trip to downtown Detroit (on the fringes of the 2 safe blocks there) for a good old fashioned mugging and a nice, oh-so-quick response from the Detroit Police.

Then, get your ass up north in the spring for some quality smelting and drinking with some friends, so that you can bite the head off of the first smelt that you catch.

Oh, don't forget the fudge in Mackinaw (Mackinack?) as you dodge the mobile home cruisers and countless tourists who are as wide as the sidewalks. *You have to do it at least once, you fudgie! *

But yeah, even the people in the UP sometimes look down on use "Trolls" - those who live south of the bridge. *It happens.

Seriously, if you are in Michigan for a while and you want to head on up for the salmon run this fall, let me know. *It is a HOOT on a fly rod, and anyone who can manage to drive can certainly catch their fill of 20-40lb salmon on the river. *Even if you have no experience with a fly rod. *It is a great part of the Michigan fall season, and nobody will care who the heck you are or how you look. *Yes, even in rural, northern Michigan you will fit in quite well in a set of waders. *

*
