Adventures At The Registry Of Motor Vehicles

Me: (heads down to the Registry of Motor Vehicles to get some veteran's plates)
RMV Wait Estimator: (estimates 37 minute wait)
Me: (waits 40 minutes)
Nice Registry Lady: (calls me to window)
Me: I'd like veteran's plates for my car.
Me: (hands over registration application and DD-214)
NRL: (does some paperwork)
NRL: Would you like the plate with the American flag, or would you like the one with the sticker for your branch of service?
Me: The one with the branch of service, please. I'd like the Navy stickers.
NRL: (does some more paperwork)
NRL: (goes off to get plates)
NRL: (returns with plates and Marine Corps stickers)
Me: I'm sorry, but these are the wrong stickers. These are Marine Corps stickers, and I was in the Navy.
NRL: (points to top of stickers) They say "Department of the Navy" right along the top.
Me: (points to bottom of stickers) But they also say "United States Marine Corps" right along the bottom.
NRL: O.O

The Nice Registry Lady did in fact get me my Navy stickers. But it was an amusing moment.
