Apparently, the California DMV has some 40-day rule where, once you die, you have a brief window to dig your way out of your own grave and reclaim your belongings. So you can’t transfer ownership of a deceased person’s car for 40 days. That day is today, so I head down to the DMV.
- One hour in line to the front door
- One hour in line to the window to get a number
- One hour for my number to be called
“Oh, it’s been exactly 40 days since she died?”
“You have to wait THROUGH the 40 days. You can’t transfer these cars until tomorrow.”
