I know this is late, sorry! It's been a long and busy day. On the bright side, I haven't been bored! Anyways, the amazing Ashley of My Fight Inside has agreed to do another guest post! If you want to do a guest post please go here to find out everything you need and send a post to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is Ashley again. (Yes, the one who was drunk.) Rachel
asked me to make a guest post, and I could not refuse. This one is mainly going
to be a rant of the complications of trying to get your license renewed. I lost
my wallet about a month ago, so I needed to go replace my license. I set my
alarm extra early, so I could get to DPS and hopefully beat the lines. Well, the
alarm did not go off, and instead of an early start, I got there around 10 AM.
The line was to the door. So, I waited, and after about thirty minutes,
I was at the first part of my long battle to get my license. I explained to the
lady that I had lost my wallet, and I did not have license, and I needed to
replace it. I gave her my social card, and she told me that I needed second form
of identification. A birth certificate or something. By this point I was
frustrated because I had waited in line for thirty minutes, and was being told I
had to go all the way home (which I live 30 minutes away) and then come
I walked out the door, and into my car, and began driving home.
Well, I guess I was going too fast in a parking lot, because a police officer
flashed his lights at me, and I was pulled over. He asked for my license, and I
told him that I had lost it, and I was trying to get a new one. He then said,
'Well, why are you leaving if you need to get a license.' I then explained to
him that apparently the government likes to make it hell to get your license and
a social card is not good enough identification.
Needless to say, the
cop did let me go without a ticket. I drove home and back to the DPS which the
line was even longer than before. This time I was in the first line for about 45
minutes. When I gave my proper identification, she gave me a number, and told me
they would call me up. I waited an hour and a half before they called me. When I
pulled out my checkbook to pay, they told me they did not accept checks. Because
I lost my wallet, I did not have my debit card.
So, I had to get out of
line, go to a store and use my ATM card to pull money out. When I got back to
the DPS I had to wait again in line, and do the whole process over again. I
spent my WHOLE day getting a license, and was not at all happy. =/
this was probably super boring, but I felt like I needed to rant. 0.o
