Government at its best...

A recent exchange between a City of Boston functionary and a minister that I know...

City of Boston: Dr. X, come in person to the Registry Division w/ $12 ‘Sir, you used MAY in the date of a marriage certificate vs. 5. We won’t accept it’

Dr. X: But what’s the reason?

CoB: State law.

Dr. X: What’s the purpose?

CoB: They won’t accept it with letters, numbers only.

Dr. X: Why not?

CoB: Because they’ll send it back. That’s my job, send it back.

Dr. X: Why do you send it back?

CoB: It’s a law.

Dr. X: But what’s its purpose?

CoB: ‘Sir, I have no idea’
