    Welcome to Florida - Steady big fella

    Haven't been here more than 3 months. Still renting a room. Haven't even traded in my MD drivers liscence yet. Wake up at about 2:30 hearing a truck idling in front of the house. My foggy mind says its alteady been there too long. Peer out through the blinds to see my shirtless roommate running across the lawn. Time to fetch the .40 and see what's going on. Hear the patio door. Slip down the hallway and see my roommate in the entry. I inquired as to the situation and he explainef that he'd drank too much, gave up his car keys, and took a ride home from his friends - no house key. I asked him to knock on my window as he passed it so there was no risk of my shooting him as he entered by the back door next time. Never got the safety off and never raised the weapon. Glad it was a non event.

    I'd give him credit for not drinking and driving.
    He doesn't have a cell phone?

    Just an FYI that if you have a vehicle . . .

    Florida DHSMV - New Residents

    In the state of Florida, a motor vehicle is required by law to be registered within ten days of the owner either becoming employed, placing children in public school, or establishing residency. Registering your motor vehicle goes hand in hand with the titling process.
    Just an FYI in the event you're ever pulled over and are asked. You have time to come up with an answer.

    A lot of beat cops and sheriffs live an apt. complexes and observe the comings and goings of out-of-state plates. It's the nature of the state. It's an expensive ticket vs. a simple license transfer (but a total waste of half a day in the branch).

    C'mon bro. Be civil. Not everyone was born a Funk or a Wagnall.

    When I first moved to the beach here in SC, that's how I got busted for not registering my car (and paying taxes on it) in time.

    Welcome to Florida. If you go through Orlando and see a big critter running around, that's just Mickey, not one of the mosquitoes that bit you.

    Also keep in mind that there isn't any one thing that makes you a resident. it is a sum total. I worked in VA for 3 year, with NC tags, but I still owned property in NC. Legally I could have made a case that I wasn't a VA resident.

    Had similar situation back in my college days..... Roommate showed up WAY after hours and had forgot to grab his appt. key off his car keys..... this was LSU so partying was an understood. I awoke to someone jimmying the lock on the backdoor. When my RM entered and saw my 1911 pointed at him........

    A 'heads-up' is all that's required. We both were shaken by the event and never again did that mistake get made, by either of us. This happened before the days of everyone owning a cell phone....

    Everybody's alive and a lesson learned. good job.
