Weight on your Drivers License... DMV can bite me! lol

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

So, I've been back in California for.... almost a year now. It was time for me to get my CA Driver's License back already! Plus I sorta had to to get insurance on my car. :P So I went... made sure to look nice for my picture... filled out the spplication.. making sure to put my weight... 160... cause well.. I KNOW I'll get to 160 before the end of this year, why put 180? That would be silly. ;) my old CA DL had said I weigh 200.. which was a big fat lie, cause when I had my CADL last.. I was around 295. Do you think people believed I was 200? Lol... probably not. ANYWAY! I was very excited about my DL saying 160!!

Turns out, I had to come back the next day to take a written test.. BOO! But I did get to take my picture! So all was not lost in primping.

I go back to DMV the next day.... pass my written *phew!* and get my print out temporary DL... what does it say? Weight: 200!! Those MFers!! Lol! So I went back in and said HEY! I put 160 on my application!! So they sent me back to the woman who had done my DL info the previous day... she's PISSED! Like.. omg! Are you serious? You're back because I didn't change your weight? Its going to cost you $22! And I say.. uh, no.. cause I put 160 on my application. You're the one who overlooked it while you were doing my DL! So, she had to do it for free... she was so RUDE! So I say to her.. look. I know you think this is a vanity issue... but its really not. I used to weight 295 pounds, and I worked HARD to get to the weight I am now... I don't want my DL to say I weigh 40 POUNDS more then what I weigh after working hard to lose it. 200 was what I used to lie and tell people I weigh! She got a little nicer after that.. but not much. But I got it fixed... my DL says weight: 160. And it makes me happy! My picture is AWESOME too! I'll have to post a pic. ;)

After all that though... the biotch didn't put me as an organ donor.. so I'm still a little peeved. But oh well.

ALSO, I finally went and got labs done the other day to check my cholesterol and all that... and my blood preasure... ALL PERFECT!! Before I lost my weight, imy DR was about to put me on medication for high BP and cholesterol! So, I'm SO happy! She said I'm extremely healthy and all my levels were perfect! Just wanted to share.

Keep being Sparktacular!! ;)

    What a great story! I love how you got them to change it. Why does it have your weight anyway??? That seems strange... Anyway, congrats on your success!!! I agree that you should not have to keep that old weight on there as a reminder, even if the silly DMV workers don't understand!

    Awesome! Good for you, glad to see you sticking up for yourself. That lady is fighting her own personal demons, dismiss her actions and attitudes. :) Happy Driving!

    I would have pushed for the 160 to be put on there, too!! You worked hard for that. Congratulations.

    Good for you! You worked hard to get to where you are now I would have said something as well! We don't have to have our weight on our license's in Michigan so thats a plus!
