...but at least it's not that bad.

As mentioned in the other thread, I already have my registration/plates; however, I submitted for vanity plates. After trying various combos, I couldn't get anything I liked so I just smashed the A button on the keyboard and hit submit. I was surprised to see that it was accepted as a valid plate.

This is what I received when I went to pick it up:

The last digit was smudged/blotched/streaked/whatever. The lady at the counter said she's never seen this happen before. It happened on both plates. So, I have to wait 14 more days to get my replacements. At least I have my non-vanity plates to drive around with in the meantime.
