Six Word Saturday!

It's been so long since I've been blogging that I had to refresh my memory on how this whole 6WS thing works!

First Six Word Saturday in AGES!

I'll try not to be such a stranger! Have a great Saturday everyone!!

"You Have 72 Hours to Get that Back on, OK?" OK?!?!

I was sitting at home, minding my own business yesterday when my phone rang. (Actually my phone began to play Enjoy the Silence - Anberlin version because I'm too cool for just a silly ring ring. No offense to the ring ringers out there!) It was the office from our apartments.

I answered and the lady on the other end proceeded to tell me that they had just been informed by the gas company that they had turned off the gas to our apartment. I assumed that it was because they were working on something. That is until she continued, "You have 72 hours to get that turned back on, OK?"

Wait! Wait a minute! Hold everything! What?

Totally unprepared for what she said I pretty much had that reaction on the phone. Then I asked her to repeat herself. Yup, still came out the same. Gas turned off, 72 hours to get it turned back on.


I knew I paid my bill! Actually I overpaid my bill! I always overpay my bill. The only thing I could think was that it had gotten lost in he mail.

So, I called the gas company and I prayed HARD! While I was on hold I turned on my stove. Lit right up. Confused.

When the gas company lady answered the phone I explained that I was looking at the entry in my check book and the stub from the bill I sent in. I explained that my stove worked and WHY, OH, WHY did you turn my gas off!?!?!

She asked me to turn on our heat, which I did and it worked. Then she looked up our account and confirmed our gas was on and our account was current.

Apparently our address was given by mistake. Sooo glad!!!

P.S. I'm really sorry to the person who's gas was ACTUALLY turned off and they weren't informed. That must suck!

Fun At The DMV

I moved to Oklahoma from Pennsylvania and without a Birth Certificate was not able to have my Driver's License changed.

This went on for a while and I didn't really think about it until my Pennsylvania license was about to expire. So, I got online and found a place to order my birth certificate. Twenty-five dollars later I had a birth certificate and I could have my license switched.

Of course I live in this ridiculous little town that just LOVES to complicate things. The Department of Motor Vehicles is located in the courthouse, employs ONE man, is open ONLY on Thursdays in February (Thursday and Friday all the other months) and on those Thursdays the hours of operation are 8 AM - 12 PM!

That's right folks! ONE man, one one day a week for four hours! Someone didn't think that through!

After dealing with them being closed due weather and also on Fridays in February, which I didn't know at the time, and my license subsequently expiring I FINALLY got in to see the ONE man. Guess what he told me? He told me that since my license was expired I would have to Re-Test!

Re-take the Written Test. Re-Take the Road Test! I'm too old to be re-taking drivers tests!

Having no other way around it I went to see the ONE again this morning. I was there at 8 AM and left at about 10:50 PM and I was number 21 on the sign-in list. After waiting all that time it was finally my turn to take the written test. I totally passed! (Booyah! As Cate would say!)

Of course the schedule for the road tests was full and I now have to GO BACK next Thursday to see the ONE again!!! At which time I get to re-take the road test. I'm not particularly excited (At all) but I DO want my drivers license back!

Hey, town where I live, fix your crap!
