I Got Fucked Good


And not in a good way. Previously on "The Straight And Narrow" I told y'all about how the DMV never got my medical form from the Dr's office and the state was threatening to suspend my drivers license. Well, I went down to the Dr's office, and wouldn't you know, the girl didn't know what I was talking about. She said she was new, but would look into it and call me. 2 weeks went by and I never got a call. I even called and left a message with the answering service, because the Dr's office never answers the phone, and still nothing.

I called the DMV and after 30 mins on hold finally talked to someone and told them what was up and could they sent out the medical release forms again. I was told there wouldn't be time, as it takes 3 weeks to get that out of the office. No wonder it takes them 30 mins to answer the phone. I was told my best bet was to request a court hearing ASAP. A request for a court hearing is done by fax, not in person, or by mail, or by email, but by old, archaic fax. Well, it just so happens I have a copy machine which has a fax mode. So, I type out a nice request letter, print it out and fax it in on Sept 17th. A good 3 and a half weeks prior to my Date of Revocation. That's because you have to allow 3 wks for them to "process" it.

I wait, and I wait, and nothing is showing up in my mailbox. So, on the 10th, yesterday, the day before they revoke my license, I call the DMV and after 38 mins someone picks up the phone and tells me "Fax? What fax?" Oh my god! I'm coming unglued! I went on a rant about how I'm doing what I'm supposed to do, but everyone else is dropping their end and I'm gonna be the one who gets fucked in the end. The lady asks me to hold while she calls the Medical Review Board. After a few minutes she comes back and tells me if I re-fax it with proof of fax, they will honor the original date of fax. My fax machine does not give me a receipt, it has a little digital window that says "Received". She puts me on hold, then comes back to tell me to re-fax it anyway and they'll set my hearing. This time I went to a mailbox store and had it faxed and got a receipt.

Today I called again, and after 37 mins someone answered and said that while he did see a confirmation of my fax,he did not see any hold on the revocation of my license. I finally got him to call the Medical board, but they told him, without that proof of the original fax sent, my license is suspended as of today. I asked him how long it takes to get my hearing. At least 90 days to set the hearing date. That's not even the date of the hearing, just the minimum amount of time till they "set" a hearing date. The guy suggested I get a new medical release form, take it to the Dr, send it to the Medical Review Board and possibly they might reinstate my license without the hearing. He's gonna send one out.

I'll be driving on a suspended license when I go back to the Dr's office. I think I need to do something "memorable" just to make sure they don't forget who I am this time. Has anybody else ever been through something as fucked as this?

God damn government and red tape will screw you over placing blame on everyone but themselves.. Would your doctor's office not have their own records as to when they sent out the original medical form in their records or yours? Sounds like your doctor's office dropped the ball originally and both sides are playing dumb.. Nothing like that has ever happened to me.Wish I had an answer for you...

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

Yeah... Well, they have smoothed out the system here so it's a lot better. I've driven with a suspended licence a few times and I find that if I drive really fast - they won't notice me ... Driving slow over here, would attract attention. Hmmm... I have tons of helpful tips like that one... Good luck!

This is the kind of shit that happens when politicians tell you how much better things will be with "less government". It actually means not enough people to deal with the amount of work there actually is and those people will not be knowledgeable because the smart one quit working for the gov.

Wish I knew that particular system since I can usually find a work around. FWIW, I always try to do stuff in person with govt/legal stuff. That way I can point at the person when something gets screwed up.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

I think the original paperwork should have been sent directly to my Dr, and if he doesn't respond they should fine him. When did I become the errand boy?

This is a goat fuck! I told the guy, I had a heart attack, they gave me a stent, after a brief stay I drove home and went to work the next day. Take out the heart attack and it would have been an out-patient procedure.

I would love to do this in person, but Austin is an hours drive. Had I known this was gonna be like this I would have gotten names and ID numbers!

Wow!!! That is BULLSHIT!!! I don't understand why you are stuck doing all the calls and having to get the paperwork . Here it's up to DMV and the doctor to take care of this type of thing between their offices. We don't have a DAMN thing to do with It!

This leaves me speechless at the incompetence of so many parties.

Why can't the damn DR.s office send the damn form on behalf of their patient? Seems reasonable to me.

Check out my profile or and become a "watcher" of my blog FMAOPLS,to learn more about me, and for intelligent, lively, smartassy and fun discussion, with a little irreverence thrown in. "Like" or comment on my photos, and I promise I'll add more. Thanks.

Um no - I don't think I've ever experienced anything that FUBAR. The long wait for a new revocation hearing is particularly unfair given that your suspension isn't for doing something BAD like drinking and driving. Just a medical issue that had to be cleared, right?

But I implore you not to "go postal" on this, since you'll just add to the stereotype that it's white guys who SNAP. LOL.

And you thought being celibate was a bad thing....right? After the way you've gotten fucked, doing without isn't always so bad, is it?
Ummm...need some lube sent to you?

I am so sorry. That is totally and absolutely appalling. How could they fuck it up so very badly??

I hope you are able to get it resolved quickly.

There's a $100 reinstatement fee I'm gonna have to pay, as well. I think the Dr should be covering that.

When they contacted me to tell me they never got the paperwork there weren't but 5 weeks left before their deadline, and they told me they needed 3 weeks of that for processing? WTF?

I went back with the forms and they filled them out, so hopefully I'll be whole again, soon.

When getting my License I made the mistake of telling the DMV that I'd had a stent put in the year prior, now they think I'm gonna die behind the wheel and take other drivers out with me,
