I’m spending a little time in Tucson again to finish
sucking every last cent I have the maintenance they didn’t get to in Tampa. Since I’m here for a couple of weeks I thought I could take care of the emissions test and registration.

No you cannot register a vehicle with a Phoenix address and a Tucson emission test. Why? You can’t. Why can’t you? Because you can’t. (Since I’d already waited more than two hours to get to the window, I felt it was OK to keep this up for a good twenty minutes, but I’ll spare you the text).
Seriously, window agent, supervisor, manager, the totality of their explanation is “you can’t.” They couldn’t show me any documentation of that, publicly accessible or internal. Just “you can’t.”
