Ah, Raging Bitch

I'd rather drink a Raging Bitch than be one.  Today was full of the mild suck.  See, I am in the process of changing my last name to my married name.  I want to officially be my Mister's Mrs.  I'm old-fangled like that.

My first mistake was going to DMV on the day after a holiday weekend.  The joint was jumpin'.  Fortunately, there was free entertainment.  No, I do not mean the wall mounted TV that didn't work right.  I mean this one lady and her mother.  The mom looked to be in her late 70s.  The daughter I'm guessing mid-50s though she looked older due to missing bottom teeth and stress.  They looked more like sisters.  See, the mom was clearly in the early stages of Alzheimer's and driving the daughter crazy.  The daughter was constantly having to wrangle her mother back onto the bench to wait for them to call her number.  Sometimes the mom would randomly get back in line.  This would result in the daughter yelling, "MA!  MAAA!  YOU ALREADY WAITED IN LINE!  YOU GOTTA COME SIT BACK DOWN!"  Then she'd bitch about her mom to anyone who'd listen- in a very loud voice.  At one point, the mom loudly declared, "You're being a bitch and I don't have to listen to this!" and stormed out, leaving the daughter worried that she'd be left without a ride home.  Mom might not be all there, but she knows when she's being dissed in public- go mom!

Now, let's think this through.  Why the fuck is the mom even allowed to drive??? I do not know and frankly, it frightens me.  Why does the DMV allow it and even more curious, why does the daughter enable it?  Does she not have her own car?  Another odd tidbit:  They were dressed almost identically in denim capris, striped shirts and flip-flops.  Also, at one point when the daughter had to go outside yet again to fetch the mom, someone said, "I don't know who's crazier- the daughter or the mom." 

Shortly after that I made my escape but not before learning that I should have brought the title to my car as well to get my name changed on that.  Yay, a return trip.  Maybe next time I'll bring the camera.  

After that, I went to my credit union to change all my money stuff.  The lady did not give me free candy which isn't cool.  Last time I had to sit down with a rep I got lots of candy.  Bah.  Still have to change car insurance info.  Two more credit cards.  Did voter registration and Social Security already.  Did I forget anything? 

It was nice out today and I should have saved this shit for a rainy day but now I'm home.  Better, see?

Matt & I'd considered changing both our names, but he bailed on me after seeing how much of a pain in the ass it was. I still have things in my maiden name cuz I got tired of it all & gave up after getting the important things done.

So wait, what's left that you didn't change? More importantly, what were you guys gonna choose as a last name? I want everything changed since I was carrying around my ex's last name.
