Rendering Unto Ceasar

October 18th, 2007 at 09:12 am

Who doesn't hate spending money on things that are completely unnecessary?

I avoid bank fees, late charges, penalties, and interest like the plague.

Even tho' it's sometimes a pain in the "you-know-what" I know one of the best ways to avoid those things is to stay on top of government rules.

The fact that I got 2 parking tickets in my 20's still bothers me --- What a waste of money --- If only I had been smarter I could have avoided them! [Knock on wood, I've never had a moving violation.]

Since we arrived in Austin, my dog has been licensed, and my car has had it's safety inspection and has been registered. Next stop: Driver's license! When all is said and done, I will have "rendered unto Caesar" about $145 not to mention the expense of driving around to take care of those things.

But just imagine the costs of not doing them and paying fines or penalties ... I can most definitely file these expenses under "money well spent."

    I am loving it, especially now that the weather has cooled down. It is beautiful.

    I just wish they could do something about those aggressive-pickup-truck-driving-lunatics! Smile

    Hey, those pickup truck driving lunatics are part of what keeps Austin weird! Wink I might be headed to A town before long to visit my son and his fiancee. I haven't been there in a couple of years.

    Welcome to Austin! Although I lived in East Texas previously for about 10 years, I absolutely love this area!
