I took my wife to get her driver's license renewed last night. She had been putting it off and putting it off for several weeks. Since yesterday was her birthday she had to have it done. Her biggest fear was the eye test.
Well as we were going the the BMV she was crying and such most of the way there for fear of failing the eye test. (She just received new glasses and needs them to drive). Tears rolling down her cheeks. Her mascara streaking down her face. I had to clean her up a bit. We walked into the BMV office and they had her take the eye test. Poof she read the letters. Done. She had passed.
Now for the paperwork, done. Easy. Now for her picture. (The receit said total time: 2 minutes 44 seconds, that's from when we walked into the door upto the time we paid). The lady behind the counter taking her picture said stand still look at the blue dot. Wait.. wait. She walks out of the picture before the flash. Jumps back in. Nope have to redo the picture. Blurry. She had moved. Again look at the blue dot. Don't move. Smile. click. She moved before the flash. But was able to jump back in. That picture took.
As I was laughing in the car, up to the BMV from home. Then when she was getting her picture taken. Then after we had left. She was crying. She said tears of relief. But I know better. She was just happy to have it over and done. Then she was saying that the eye test was real easy. She didn't know why she was so worried. I still get a chuckle thinking about it today.

I want your DMV. I usually pack provisions when I have to go to the DMV. I try and get by with the mail in method if I can.

I just got my license renewed. They had to add a condition because I couldn't read all the letters in the left half of the line. (Crap, here I am routing inlays in a very expensive banjo neck. But, I digress) Anyway, the condition states I have to always drive a car that has (are you ready?) OUTSIDE SIDE REAR VIEW MIRRORS!
Now, really, I can't find a car without them! Seriously, that's what the new condition reads!
On a lighter note, when it came to hair color on the license, they just put, "not applicable."

My wife got a ticket recently because she has not changed over to Indiana from Alabama. So she is dreading the trip to the local BMV office, too, to take the written exam. I expect she will be carrying on in some form or fashion.
