LMAO!!!! I talked to the director over there and it REALLY cheesed him off when I said that I'd had this van for over a month now and don't have a title. I REAALLY made him wimper a bit when I said "I've got a friend in Omaha that can be there next week to pick up my title and fedex it to me, can you have it ready?"
He's saying they'll have ANOTHER duplicate made and sent out monday morning.
I told him I'd trust having someone not employed at that office handle shipping it and he almost sounded like he was going to cry on his ride home from work.
I also had gotten a REALLY snarky, smartassed email from the lady who was my initial contact at the university, so I forwarded that to him as well. I think this part was crucial-
Legally I have 30 days to get this title to you. It will be mailed out on Monday
I don't think Jodie is gonna have a happy monday morning back from her second vacation in a month!
He really was adamant that they'd "make this right first thing monday". I told him if I didn't have the title by early next week I'd have the van towed somewhere as its illegally parked in my yard with no tag. And that I'd be sending University of Nebraska the bill.
Thanks for stepping up and being kind, Evertiro! I'll keep ya posted on what happens.
