Surely I'm Not The Only One With These Kinds Of Issues

I just got my Nebraska drivers license. Does it need to be said that I am thrilled to only have to do this once every four years? Or every time I move. Because mine usually resembles something really not good, okay?

So what do you do for your license picture? Do you smile? Smirk? Frown? I rolled my eyes once.

Note: Do not roll your eyes. It's funny for about 5 minutes and then you have to pay to get another one taken. And the guy taking the photo isn't amused. So he takes your picture at an upward angle cuz everyone knows a woman's photo should never be taken from that angle but he does it to be a prick because you were a prick for rolling your eyes in the first one and he's got you by the balls so you're screwed. Then you get the new license that makes you look like Attila The Hun.

Then you swallow hard and ask for the first one back because it's actually better and the bastard smirks and you're stuck with it. And you spend four years hoping to hell you don't get carded or pulled over cuz you'd almost rather go to jail or go without booze than pull out this shit.

I really hate to be the one to tell you this, but Nebraska is going to start mailing out renewed licenses. In other words, the picture you have on there now, is NOT going to be retaken in four years. You'll just receive the exact same one in the mail!!!! Forever. Doesn't that suck??? The good thing is that you will never gain a pound! Sorry.....

LOL My last drivers license picture was when I was 389047 months pregnant... I did my best to suck in my fat neck and face, but it really didnt work so well... I refuse to go back and pay for a new picture. You would think I would plan my babymaking at a different time to avoid the fat face drivers license pic!

one time I was doing the lip thing to rub in my chapstick and *flash* they took my picture. Fuckers.

I think they wait for you to NOT be ready and then get ya.

lol this totally made me laugh, I love how here they say in that monotone voice - "look into the camera and smile if you wish" If I wish? I don't know, am I a dork if I do because I kinda want to...

Yeah. Driver's License pics are the best. And you know who took my pic from an upwards angle??? MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. Yep. He did. And if he didn't do it at an upward angle, he did them with a wide angle lense. He's a schmuck for sure. Ruined all of my wedding photos. Rat bastard.
