Along with everything else I have to do for my upcoming 65th year of blessings, I had to renew my driver's license.
Well it has not been my favorite thing since I moved to GA, where quite frankly their backwards ways get to me. I come from Ohio, after you first issue you go in with your old license, verify the info (might need proof of address if changed-I've been away for a while) get your picture taken, wait a few more minutes and walk out with your new license. Same scene in Florida, then I moved to GA. where after going through the hoops you get a paper copy and are told you will get your new one in the mail. Now this didn't annoy me five years ago when I was able to renew on line, but this year I'm aggravated. I've lived in GA since 1989, but I had to take my birth certificate, my marriage certificate, my social security card and two utility bills/or an insurance bill with my current address on it. I had all of that plus my passport-so she didn't want to see my marriage certificate.
Now I've lived in this house since April 2006, filed for a change of address immediately and was expecting to get my plastic card on the spot. NOOOOOOOOOOO, I get a piece of paper with my picture on it and the old expiration date on it and am told I must weight for the real McCoy and that the real license will have the new expiration date. All this after cooling my heals for an hour there because they've closed so many offices.
What happened to the computer age? Why is this so here? How is it in your state? Please tell me it's a might easier.
I have to tell you that when we moved to GA, my DH's card was delayed for a few weeks because they had to get the Govenor's Christmas Cards out! Now doesn't that beat all. Back then he drove around with a yellow piece of paper for 8 weeks! Because they had to get the Govenor's Christmas Cards out!
