I do not know a person who enjoys settling errands in any office.
Visits to these places are usually associated with stress, disappointment and a sense of lost time. It seems to us that we all have the documents we need, and we will take care of the matter, and on the spot, it turns out that this is just the beginning of a long process. Officials inform you that the necessary signatures, certificates, consents and copies of the documents are missing. Instead of explaining everything thoroughly, they do little to help and we feel they want to make things even more difficult.
Rarely do we hear that someone came across a window with a lovely lady who led him by the hand and explained everything from A to Z. Most of the time, office workers approach human problems with disdain and they complete their duties extremely sluggishly. This makes the thought of going to a governing body give you goose bumps and you thus try to pull off those nasty meetings in minimal time. Sooner or later you will have to settle the matter and face the dreaded clerk.
Nick Stafford is from a small town, Lebanon, Virginia, where he bought three vehicles. He wanted to register and pay the taxes due, but he was not in a position to get along with Department of Vehicles (DMV) officials. They presented him with a lot of difficulties and no one could get specific information from anyone. The upset American raised three lawsuits against the DMV staff in court, but all were dismissed. Anyway, he had to pay a tax of $3,000. He decided that now he would play a trick on the officers.
What did he do? More about this on the next page.
