I had to renew my driver's license this week. That's right - I am having a birthday. It's not a significant one. That happened last year.
I don't know why, but the driver's license renewal is just unappealing to me. It is especially bothersome since Idaho went to the eight year plan. Daily stuff like making my bed and brushing my teeth do not present themselves as nuisances. It's the annual things that get to me - taxes, vehicle registrations, and physical exams. I just don't seem to have time for those! Those things on an eight year rotation ... why bother?
The driver's license renewal is a bit of an honesty check, is it not? I'm really squeaking to pass the eye test! I forgot and left my distance glasses home. (I seldom use them!) The weight question always gets me.
"Is your weight still the same?"
"Well, no, it has gone down a bit, but actually it is closer to the weight listed. Just leave it." (I've been lying about my DL weight for years!)
Hair color? That changes all the time!
It is good, too, that they do the eye test prior to snapping the photo. I couldn't see a thing afterwards! I hope I recognize my signature.
Friends have been complaining about the "new" Idaho license design. I don't think it has anything to do with the new design. I think we just hate the whole experience. It's just too revealing.
