Fun at the registry

Today the police came to tow my wifes auto as Farmers Insurance screwed up the registration. Rather funny and sad at the same time. Our nation is really screwed up.

I wonder about the souls of these officers. Performing evil on other human beings. Not good karma.

Now I am sitting in the DMV office next to some older and newer Americans who speak Spanish. It is interesting. One is 3 years old.  She is a handful. The mom didn’t bring any toys so I offered a registry manual. Too bad,  no crayons. I did ask my eldest to bring some crayons and crackers, but her Dad came first. Compassion is a human emotion. We are all humans.

Hope I can get this straightened out today.

Well it looks like it may not be straightened out today. If it’s not straightened out soon, we are concerned that the vehicle may be sold. I was there from 1330 PT to 1630 PT on 2/24/2014 CE.

Just spoke with CA DMV operator ZLDL who is escalating to her Manager Essel, but she said it may be 3 weeks till CA DMV even gets to the letter. Joyce is fuming.

It would have been more enlightened to ticket her vehicle on the street as a warning to get it off the street rather than seize it. That’s what I’ve seen in other communities.

Letter from Farmers Insurance

2/25/2015 CE Santa Clarita, CA
Today I visited the local office of Assemblyman Scott Wilk. I met with Patsy Ayala (tel 661-286-1565). I explained the story to her and, she will be in touch with the DMV and Farmers Insurance. I hope to hear from her shortly.

2/25/2015 CE Email from Liz Munson @ Farmers Insurance:

I was able to reach a gentleman by the name of Manny at the DMV. He stated
that he would try to escalate the issue at the DMV if I sent over the
letter to him that I sent yesterday. I faxed the letter I provided to you
yesterday to him a few minutes ago to review and try to get your
information updated.

Some possible items for resolution:

‣ Auto provided in the interim for Joyce.
‣Swinks to be enjoined from selling or dismantling the automobile while this is being addressed.
‣Joyce’s Civic returned to our driveway.
‣Payment by us of the fees owed to properly register the Civic, ideally managed by a Farmers agent so we don’t need to spend more wasted hours at the DMV
