Driver's License Renewal

Posted by Karen Hessen on Sunday, October 2, 2011 Under: humor
It is time to renew my driver's license. No big deal, right? Wrong!! Everything was going smoothly until it was time to pose for my new picture. They told me I had to take my glasses off. Well, I have very poor eyesight. I have to wear corrective lenses for driving. It has been that way for forty-seven years. I am getting older and change is difficult. In addition to correcting my vision, my glasses adorn my face. Do you have any idea how much I paid for these glasses? I do not wear  much make-up. Some people pierce their lip or eyebrows. Some paste a rhinestone beside their nose. People with money tattoo eyeshadow on their eyelids or artificially plump-up their lips. My lips and the rest of my face are plump enough, thank you!  

Did you know that the cameras at DMV measure the bony structures of your face? I didn't know. I'm not sure I want that information in someone's database. They tell me it's for my own protection. Sure, and I believe that! In case someone steals my license they will be able to review my bony measurements with the thiefs and know that he or she is not me. When did we all become terrorists and felons?

So, after taking a number and waiting a couple hours for my turn, I refused to take my glasses off. They returned my check for forty dollars, my soon to expire driver's license with the hole punched in it indicating is is no good and gave me a temporary license to use until my birthday.This won't surprize you. . .THEY WON! I realized (before I got out the door) that I need my driver's license. My husband refuses to get up early on Monday mornings to driver me to my writer's group, hang around for two hours then drive me home. He also said "No" when I asked if he would take me through the drive-thru at McDonald's everyday to get my iced tea. There are no DMVs in Oregon that use older style cameras. I called around and asked. So I went to a neighboring town where I am not known and where the DMV employees did not witness my photo stand-off, took a number, waited a couple hours for my turn, removed my glasses and had my picture taken. But I guess I showed them a thing or two. . . I refused to smile.
