OP... "fuckcops"? No... fuck your your ass for being a selfish fool and expecting a free ride on road taxes, and for thinking you are exempt for your crime. You win the Quarterly fmylife.com prize for "Inconsiderate Son of a Bitch".

A7X... First of all, I do believe that she was talking about OP and not you... and second of all... Even though I am from Leon, Mexico, I'm sick of people like you making racist comments. There are more white people who try to act "black" then black people who try to act "white"

How was that racist? I didn't make that comment because he's black I made it because he looks like a thug. There are plenty of white people who look like thugs too; color has nothing to do with it. I wasn't being racist.

Dude that sucks and all, I don't know if "you deserve it" really applies here but for real, it absolutely was your fault so nut up or shut up OP.

don't buy the burger! there are things more important! You can invest the money or just save it and let it compound itself in the bank until you have enough and next time this happens you will be prepared

Yep i agree with 74. if someones that stressed about their lowpaying job everyday, and busy working all the time, op probably forgot. and those previous comments about how op is selfish and thought they could get away from crime or whatever? seriously? what made u ppl assume op did it on purpose?

Shit happens. Maybe u can pay all ur stuff off, but sum people don't have ne1 to lean on. Get ur hear outa ur ass

114 maybe OP only works part time due to time constraints or maybe this has been an irregular working period for him due to recent illness or other personal (or even business) matters. Maybe OP is a server and works overtime every but is only pulling in $4.25 an hour plus tips so his pay checks are relatively weak. Don't be so quick to judge d-bag.

@101 registration isnt "upkeep" on your vehicle, its called revenue raising. it doesnt affect the safety of your car, and as such shouldnt be enforced in the same way. a simple warning would suffice, as fining someone for something that has little real world impact is just a waste of time.

88 - They're not trying to make money, they enforce laws to keep people safe and keep our community in order. Although vehicle tags are pretty useless...

Thing is though, this law is there just to make money. It's pointless and doesn't achieve anything. Here in Europe you don't have to do this.

yea and née we are in a recession, and cops do have a quota to make, think about it…it's sucks but whatcha gonna do

Reply

138- if that we're the case they'd have cash. My point is this is probably a 16 year old working a shitty PT job.

229, in Michigan your tags expire on the birthday of whoever the car is registered to. Assuming this is OP's car (otherwise why would they buy the tags?) it would be their birthday. I would hope they could remember that.

This comment reminded me of the movie Supersize Me. If the OP would go the WHOLE summer on McDonalds, they would die.

Reply

if you eat one kind of food whenever your hungry u would get fat. if I were to eat only pizza for example for a month I would get fat. that show is retarded though. you just need variety to stay thin

Reply

You don't know that... OP could make $40/hour but was only able to work one day during the pay period for whatever reason.

Reply

Someone making $40 an hour should have the common sense to register their vehicle. he makes minimum wage and works part time. enjoy it while it lasts.

Reply

40 dollars an hour? Then I would assume that the car would be legal because OP has the money, USUALLY.

Reply

That's what I was thinking. If OP is working full time (40 hours/week), even making minimum wage ($8/hour), he should still have $320 a week, which is more than the fml implies. Thus, we can assume that OP is working part time and probably has another source of income (read: supportive parents), so it's not like he's starving to death anyway. Basically, OP is bitching because he won't be able to go out with his friends for a week...

Reply

thus we can assume *common sense* + *completely ridiculous assumption given the lack of information* = *waste of time even reading the comment* thanks 135.

Reply

Dorked out, my bad. tl;dr: The fml is slightly less tragic than it seems when you consider that OP probably wouldn't be able to live on that amount of money anyway, so it's probably just about a lack of spending money.

Reply

Ya minimum wage is not $8 first of all, and second of all you forgot about taxes. My fiancé works full time (and lots of over time) at $9/hr and for a 40 hour week his check is about $302 after taxes. So it's definitely possible for OP to be working full time. OP could even be making more than $9/hr if he gets money taken out of his check for health insurance.

Reply

sorta what u was thinking: if op's so strapped, they should work full time. but jobs can be hard to find. I say YDI. tags expiring should be planned/saved for, it's not like a random breakdown.

Reply

I'm sorry, but mismonroe or w/e your username is...I hope to God you are wearing pants in that picture. ew

Reply

Oh you guys are all right, sorry haha. Damn taxes. But I think the minimum wage might vary by state because I'm almost positive that it's around $8 in California

Reply

I agree with #11. she prolly don't make shit. ur not just gonna sit on ur ass when ur broke and only work one day.

Reply

Don't know where you or op live. But minimum wage is $8.67 here. It's not $7.25 everywhere..

Reply

While arguing on how much OP may or may not work is fun... there is another option. Maybe OP has bills being auto-paid, or already subtracts in advance for them leaving them with roughly 230$ spending cash.

Reply

op probably forgot, because she was stressed out, or didn't have the money to renew them, because she didn't have her paycheck yet. Op needs a better job :/

Reply

So then they shouldn't be driving. I'm not saying I don't feel bad for OP, but if you can't afford to keep your car safe/registered, don't drive it. Its not rocket science.

Reply

VitaLP- so you're saying....who cares if op needs a car to get to work that COULD be across town...somewhere they can't walk to, and who knows if they have money to get on the bus EVERYDAY seeing as they don't even have enough money to pay their tags? Yeah that sounds like a great idea to me. Not to mention buying a bike can be pretty expensive too. or even, where I used to work there wasn't a bus stop ANYWHERE NEAR it and it was well out of walking distance. wow the ignorance amazes me

Reply

93- what does that have to do with anything? you know your tags will expire, you can plan ahead and save. I know a single mom who saved for 3 months ahead to afford her tags. you can be broke but intelligent at the same time.
