He Was Rude and Arrogant to DMV Staff, but They Got Their Own Back by Not Giving Him the Cool License Plate He Wanted

A woman recently went online to share the story of how she’d gotten her own back on an entitled customer at the DMV. Here’s her story.

She hated the job

“When I was young, I worked at the DMV in an attempt to crush my soul enough to join the corporate world,” the woman began.

There was one perk

“One of the only joys of being in that place was the occasional funny or cool license plate that randomly showed up.”

The woman explained that license plates in her state had a basic, “three-plus-three” pattern: three random letters and numbers, a space for the state logo, then three more random letters and numbers.

Every morning, the woman would go through the stack of plates at his workstation, looking for cool ones, such as JM5 BND (James Bond) or MTL 1CA (Metallica).

Whenever the woman or one of her co-workers found an interesting license plate, it would be the highlight of the day.

It was a normal day

One day, the woman was at work, halfway along a line of stations. She called her standard “I can help you down here!” to the guy at the front of the queue.

The guy’s reaction was not what she expected.

The guy walked angrily over to an unmanned station and began yelling, “Why can’t you help me down here?!”

He wouldn’t let it go

The two then proceeded to get into an argument that took about three times longer than it would have taken the woman to process his registration had he simply walked to her station.

Eventually, she gave up and went to the station the guy was standing at.

It was unnecessary

The guy continued to show attitude at every opportunity, giving rude and sarcastic answers to all of the woman’s basic questions. She said she understood that the DMV was an annoying place to have to deal with, but that the guy was only making things worse for himself.

As the woman was filling out the guy’s form, she noticed that the license plate on top of the stack was, as she put it, “a doozy.” She sadly couldn’t remember what it was, but it was very cool and almost naughty.

The guy had seen it too. According to the woman, he looked “like a kid about to get the biggest lollipop in the candy store.”

This was the woman’s chance to get her own back. She made brief eye contact with the guy, moved the cool plate to the bottom of the stack, and began issuing the mundane one that was underneath.

He was powerless

She half-expected the man to get even angrier, but perhaps realizing that it was his own fault, he fumed silently.

The woman said she had a little strut when she walked out to verify the man’s VIN.

The internet responded

The internet loved the woman’s petty revenge story. “Absolute boss move,” cheered one.

“This reminds me of why it’s always wise to be nice to whoever is helping you,” said another.
