That’s the most interesting part, is that by that Occam’s Razor standard, it is not the simplest conclusion. To me, the simplest conclusion is that the guy is not being forthright. It is simpler to believe that he is omitting the truth in order to gain sympathy and avoid repercussions. And while it may seem more plausible because it involves the perception and reputation (admittedly a well deserved reputation) of incompetence at the RMV, that is a fallacy.

You believe that the simplest conclusion is that a man is lying. I believe the simplest conclusion is that he’s being truthful. You and I see the world differently.

Isn’t that the whole point of this? This whole platform? In a way, it’s endearing that you have been able to hold onto your ability to default to truth and trust. I hope you never change. I react strongly because I despise seeing people being taken advantage of. In this case, I think in a collective sense, those who default to truth with this story were used, meaning that you were used by him. I think he was being manipulative, and I don’t have any tolerance for that.

You “despise people being taken advantage of” yet you’re defending a large government entity instead of a common person. Which one of those do you think is more likely to take advantage of the other? The large government entity or the common person? I understand that many people may play games with the system; however, in this case the dude seems like he has his head on straight and we all know that the RMV can be an absolute poop show.

Sad mentality. Learn to be positive and give people the benefit of the doubt. You don't win anything in life by assuming negativity.
