but every year he would take leave from work and go down to the tag office and wait in line for 2-3 hours to renew his tag on the very last day you could do it. He wouldn't do it through the mail, which was an option, because that would cost money for postage AND the state charged you 1 dollar extra for renewing it by mail

And he was actually *losing* money by waiting in line to do it in person. Cost to renew by mail: ~$1.37, whereas 2 hours of his time cost (I have no idea what his rate would have been, but let's assume $50/hr) $100 in lost income. So he's not only cheap, but stupid.
