Last second bill pay

I WENT TO the Secretary of State office today to renew my scooter tags. It was packed. It's the last day of the month, and a lot of people are also renewing plates. I only had to wait about 15 minutes, and the line was starting to go out the door when I left.

I suspect most people just wait until the last second out of habit. Not me. For months I've had the renewal notice. I could have done it online. I could have done it a month ago. But I purposely waited until the last day as a way of showing my frustration with our screwed up, dysfunctional and useless state government.

Illinois is broke. I couldn't care less if you are an R or a D. Just fix the damn problem. Get rid of your ideological ego, Mike Madigan, and get off your high reform horse, Bruce Rauner. FIX THE BLEEPING PROBLEM.

Sorry. Too simple. So I show my frustration by waiting until the last second to pay for my new scooter tag. It doesn't cause a ripple or make anything better.

But. I'm in a better mood. And my tags are updated so I can zip around on my scooter. And I made an eye appointment and fixed my pedal board this morning, too.

In other words, I got more done in one morning than our elected officials have tried to get done for years.
