Jesus. I wonder how you go about checking to see if there's a warrant out?

Either it's fucking hard to do, or there isn't one yet.  :nonplused:

Allegedly you can go to the MI Courts page and do a search.  I got nothin'.  Then I went the Case Search section and searched Cases and then Orders.  Apparently nothing.  I hope, but I'm driving extra-carefully.

Our bookkeeper just told me it's no problem and happens all the time.  WELL PARDON ME but I happen to think it's problematic.  I mean, I know what she means, but . . . Jesus in a go-kart.

And to think how mad I was about the trash service.

Yeah, no problem until you get sucked into that Hell. Dealing with bureaucracy at that level is a whole different nightmare.

There was a local story here recently about a guy that failed to appear for traffic court, a warrant was put out, the guy then took care of the ticket/fines. Like a year later he gets arrested on the warrant that was supposed to have been closed. Apparently that type thing is fairly common. The cops don't care, you get thrown into the system until you pay someone to figure it out for them. No thank you.

Found it:

Swalm denies ever getting that letter.  Indeed, DDS looked back on its records and found that even though the address was correct, the postal service returned the letter.  DDS never sent another letter or tried to figure out why it came back.

Yet another local story about a mail scam. Apparently it's easy to go online and stop anyone's mail service. Then, if so inclined, the thief makes a fake ID and goes to the post office to pick up the victim's mail.

I don't think it's what is happening to you, but it goes to show how there's stuff going on like this.

The supervisor swore up and down that she was sure it wasn't the carrier.  And there are TWO carriers who regularly work my route.  But right after she talked to the carrier, I started getting mail again every single day.

Including two bills that were over two weeks old.  :innocent:  Just showed up!  Funny, that.

I don't farkin' know.  I didn't get the letter she sent me to test what the problem was.  :shrug:

I did finally hear back from the city treasury.  They were like "We mailed you several times.  Twice this past February, and twice in October of 2015."

Uh.  OK, first, I don't believe you, and, second, that doesn't even make a shred of fucking sense.  Like, how can you go get the file, look at it, and think, "Hey, nothing wrong with what it says here!  I'll totally tell the person what it says here, because this doesn't look crazy!"

Anyway, then the woman told me that since I paid them $80, fuck it, it's all good.

I wrote back and said, no, it's not all good.  This shit is not OK.

I know, but it was impossible.  I did keep going back and erasing the cursing out my email.

I'm sure my wife is on lists for her abuse of CSRs/govt. minions.

I was careful to stress that my irritation was mostly not personal but departmental.  This woman did totally blow off 99% of my concerns and act like What Is Even Your Problem, but I attribute that to the inurement of working there.  Although I did also say that.  :P
