Time To Vent

I'm just mad.
My van didn't pass DEQ and I'm mad.
My girls and I sit in the line for a half-hour and the stupid DEQ guy said that a little puff of smoke came out of the tail pipe, which qualifies for an automatic "Fail".
My car is fine! Just take my money, give me my stupid tags and let me be on my way!!! This whole thing is a joke anyway. Just taxing us under the guise of Enviromental Quality. I've seen old clunkers go through without the blink of an eye!
Aargh!!!!
I need something to crunch.
Maybe that family size bag of chips will do.

  2. That's maddening!! We've had that happen to us, too. And you wonder how those old horrible cars make it through? Or do we only think the ones we see on the road have passed and they are just driving illegally??

    Gosh, I'm sorry it happened to you. :-(

  3. I agree. I've lived in states with car inspections, and it just seems like a rip-off. But, having lived in a state with no inspections, I can say that I've seen cars held together with very imaginative uses of duct tape and trash bags!

  4. UGH!!!!! The nerve of that guy not letting it slide! :) I hope the chips were good. Days like that are when chips taste so much better than they normally do.

    Sorry I've been really out of touch...I got a job running a website and it was a total surprise. I love it and I write as well, so I'm trying to balance my own blog, working (from home...hooray!!) and playing with my children.

    I am going to get better at time management...haha...who am I kidding?

    Hope all is well with you!! :)

  5. Our state thankfully did away with inspections a couple years after I got my first car. Guess they knew I would be complaining every year about it!

  6. Can you go to another location? Let the van run for 20 minutes before it is tested too....when all that fails offer the guy a bribe!

  9. Oh I'm so glad we don't have to do that here...cuz with the luck I tend to have, mine would fail even if I just bought the sucker BRAND NEW off the lot!
