I’m vulgar.Â Well, that’s moderately common knowledge, but, according to the State of Texas, I’m officially vulgar.
This all started a few weeks ago. A company by the name of MyPlates.comÂ was given a renewal by Texas to handle vanity license plates with a whole bevy of new designs that look about a bajillion times better than the piece of crap that Texas decided on in this last round (don’t even get me started on the new “look” the driver’s license has). Since I have a little website and associate myself with a gang of miscreant ne’er-do-wells called the Forkers, I thought it would be clever to have “Forker” on my plates (since they only allow six characters).
I should have known that it wouldn’t be that easy.Â MyPlates has you by the balls.Â All of their legalese lays out that once you click the submit with your payment, that payment is gone.Â The State may still reject your request, but you are still out the amount of money you’ve just paid.Â Bogus bullshits. Any legitimate company where “I want a refund” is not an option is not a company but, rather, organized crime.
So, now I have to come up with something unvulgar to put on my car since they already have my money hostage.Â Bastards.
They can just go fork themselves.
