The Government: Annoying And Costly

The state government is annoying a friend of ours by threatening to pull his temporary operating license because of an unavoidable construction delay. I wrote a character letter of reference on his behalf to the appropriate authority but didn’t have any business envelopes in the house.

The trip to the CVS down the road to get the envelopes cost me $1.77. The cut that went to the Virginia government, whose bureaucratic nonsense forced me to write the letter in the first place, was 8 cents — and that’s not counting the tax on whatever gas I consumed to drive to the CVS.
