I just came from the DMV and am convinced that they have an affirmative action hiring program for the Unhelpful-Americans.
This is a minority that can't be employed in a service job in the private sector because their tone of voice/facial expressions/general attitude indicate that they would just as soon take a bath with a toaster as they would help you pay for the product or service that you came for.
They frequently wear mumu's...
Long story short, I got a car from California that belonged to my Grandma. I drove it up here on the hottest weekend of the year. All I want to do is register it in Oregon. Unfortunately I don't have the 2006 registration from California. I have a million other pieces of paper and some older registrations but not the '06.
The Unhelpful-American at the DMV told me to go to California and when I expressed some shock at this she offered the helpful remark of "if you want to use the car that is."
Since we enjoy consumer choice in our capitalist system I left and have decided to take my bussiness elsewhere...
I sure can't wait until government is in charge of all healthcare so that I can enjoy dealing with the Unhelpful-Americans with the already very enjoyable medical paperwork issues.
