Agencies need to behave reasonably

Has anyone else on the Peninsula been caught in a ridiculous grudge match that’s going on? It’d be funny if it weren’t so petty. Here’s what’s going on: The Department of Motor Vehicles was assigned a new suite number over there in the Red Diamond Center. I think it’s Suite 9 instead of 8, or some such number. That doesn’t really matter. The mail boxes are right next to each other, according to a worker at the DMV. But the U.S. Postal Service won’t deliver DMV mail if it has the wrong suite number on it, even though the box is right next to the old one. Why? Because, according to a worker at the Kenai Post Office, they’ve been delivering it misaddressed too long and it’s the DMV’s responsibility to change it on their website. Sounds like a bit of spite to me.

So whose problem is it? Yours and mine. If you want to send something to the DMV and look up the address from their website, it’ll get returned, “undeliverable.” Shame on you, post office, for being so petty, and shame on you, DMV, for being so lazy you won’t even change your website.

Once again, the puny little citizen has to pay for bureaucratic stupidity.
