Yup! Placed the order for my new license plate back on February 5, was charged for it right after. Didn’t arrive, didn’t arrive…Waited the required 4 weeks plus the additional 15 days before I called the DMV to say “Hey, haven’t gotten my new license plate yet!” They looked it up, say it didn’t ship until March 7th, and to please wait until the end of the month for it to show up. Oh, but I might want to check with the Post Office to make sure they didn’t have it. So tried calling the post office repeatedly. Apparently, with their budget woes, they didn’t pay their phone bill, never DID get anyone to pick up the phone at our branch.
So left a note in the mailbox for our mail carrier this morning, explaining the situation. When I went down to get the mail today, I joked “Wouldn’t it be funny if the plate was in the mailbox today?”
And lo and behold, it WAS! :-O Had the note I’d left for him sitting right on top of it as well.
So have no idea if it was just coincidence that it showed up the day after I call about it and the afternoon after I’ve left a note about it, or if it actually HAD gotten misplaced and the note just reminded him that it was there, or exactly what happened. Just seems kind of funny for it to be shipping from someplace in Raleigh to someplace ELSE in Raleigh, and take 2 full weeks to get here. But in any case, it arrived today, and is already on the car, ready to befuddle (“Oh Ah WHUT!?!”) the drivers behind me. And now I can refer to car as my Toyota Plea-us. LOL
