I was born back in the Industrial Age, and am now living a busy life in the Information Age. Here is child of the Roaring Twenties paying his bills online like a baby-boomer, or whatever it is that people born late in the last century are called.
In February I had my Chevrolet Astrovan "smogged", as we call it, and the confirmation of that inspection sent electronically to the state capitol in Sacramento where Arnold Schwartznegger resides.
AND then I got online and sent my credit card number to the Department of Motor Vehicles for my 2005 registration. And that was that. Or so I thought.
Today I got a notice of overdue automobile registration, with a bill, AND WITH A $ 47 PENALTY ADDED ON.
Tomorrow, I will put an old fashioned check in the old fashioned red, white, and blue mail box, and hope to get my new old fashioned 2005 decals back... the same way.
