Frustration and Bad Luck

No big things are happening around here but a bunch of little ones are driving me crazy. I have been trying to renew my drivers license for over two weeks and each time I go down to renew them the man I have to deal with finds something more he wants me to do before he will issue them to me. First he questioned my birth certificate, So I had to go to the safety deposit box and retrieve it. For a bit there I knew how the President felt regarding his birth certificate. A copy was not acceptable.

When I brought in my papers the second time the same man decided I might not have passed the vision test so he sent me to my eye doctor for his analysis and that will be done this week.

The thing is every time I go to try to get my license I have to start at the very beginning and go through all the stuff I have gone through before. On top of all this bs, the guy keeps tossing out questions at random to try to rattle me. Just out of the blue last time he asked, “Where were you born?”.

I really think this guy thinks he should be working security in an Israeli airport. I’m betting he goes home at night and enjoys thinking about his astute security approach to renewing freaking drivers license.

Oh, and yesterday as I hit the flush lever on the toilet I heard something fall into the water. It was one of my very nice gold hoop earrings. Now that earring lives in our septic tank.

How has your luck been lately?.

Is there another driver's license facilty available to you? I had problems with a polish lady at one near my office, so I went to another one the next weekend, closer to my house, and had no problems at all.

If there isn't one available, maybe you can ask to speak to a supervisor if you can't get past Mr. TSA/DMV? If he gets enough complaints, maybe they will FIRE him and save the State some money!

OMG I have never been asked for a birth certificate when renewing my license in South Carolina. Here you just go in, pass the vision test, get the photo taken and get your new license. Where you were born was none of his business. This guy needs to find another job.

He's like Marge Simpson's sisters, Patty and Thelma, who work at the Springfield DOL. Only they're cartoon characters...
This guy needs to be reported.
