Boy, if I ever felt like a real wooly-head, it was today.
My drivers license was due for renewal this year. I was sure it said 2012. I looked at it more than once. Yep, 2012
So I make an appointment with the DMV. Get all my documents to prove I am me and I live where I live. GPS says it will take 15 minutes to get there. I don't think they account for red lights, because it took me 25 minutes.
I wait my turn. When I'm called to come up to the desk, I give the lady at the desk my paperwork. Then I take the eye test. When I got my license way back when, I didn't need glasses, but I have glasses now. So I take the eye exam without glasses at first. I couldn't make out the jibberish on line 5. So I definitely need my glasses to drive.
The need for glasses becomes more apparent when she stops my eye exam and says, "Wait, what are we doing here?"
I reply, "Renewing my drivers license."
"Your license is good until 2017."
I had to check to make sure. It does say 2017!
I think I am going to have someone else double check before I renew something else. Like my passport. It is good until 2017 also!
