I renewed the tabs on my truck this morning before work. I went in and stood in line for the usual 30 minutes. When I get up to the counter, the clerk says I have to pay for 2003 and 2004 because the previous owner put stickers from another vehicle on the plates. So I’m footing the bill for the previous owner cruising around for 8 months with essentially fake year stickers on the vehicle. They were actually for a much older vehicle, so the guy probably saved a bundle. I bought it from a dealer, we’ll see if they will make it right.
Update: They made it right with no hesitation.
You got hosed on that one. Next year, try ordering the tabs online. I got mine in 3 days after ordering them and no lines to deal with. Enuff helpful advise for one night! 8- )

After being pulled over by the cops and having the cop tell me that my tabs and drivers license were expired and almost having my car towed, Thankfully I was right in front of my house, I went and renued, talk about a kick in the shorts!!! The White Bear License beauro was super fast, I was in and out in like 5 minutes. I recommend the service there next time! NO LINES!!!! Yes, I said NO LINES!

I tried the online thing (as I’ve done for years) but it failed because it wasn’t just a renewal. I’m guessing it choked because the car hastn’ had tabs for over a year.
V – Wow your luck. First you get pulled over in front of your home away from home, aka “Shugs”, then a year later right in front of your real house. Both times you used a get out of jail free card – not bad.

The trick is to just start bawling and tell the officer you just watched Steel Magnolias!
