Ode to ego has annual tab of $25

Posted: May 10, 2014 at 6:12 a.m.

Dear Mahatma: Due to my huge ego, I want a vanity plate to honor a former place of employment where I was paid for what was essentially a ski vacation and beerfest in Bavaria. I was writing out the check for the $25 fee when I read it's an annual fee over and above the regular registration fee. This is theft! And the plate will probably outlast my vehicle anyway. -- Cherokee Acres
