That DMV lady was MEAN?!!


Ok so I went to the DMV on 34th to get my license renewed. Last time I did it in my hometown which is small and they let me pick which photo I wanted and totally gave me time for a "look" at 34th street its the "dmv EXPRESS" so I shoulda known THEY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME! After she took the pic she smiled so I figured it was a good picture but I was WRONG, the lady was MEAN and LAUGHING AT ME?!?! She totally picked the BAD ONE where I have a PIG NOSE and CLOWN EYE BROWS and a DOUBLE CHIN, not to mention I apparently was WEARING A CAPE that day?!?!
UGH! I should NEVER let someone shoot me from below, with my head tilted back, chin somehow tucked in, and straight up my nose?! Now Im stuck with it for 8 years.... I wonder if I can pay to have it retaken.

they did the same thing to me back in 04. mine expires this september and i'm hoping the illinois DMV experience will be better, even though i KNOW it's gonna be even worse.

lesson: don't tilt your head back at the DMV.

No problem. If you're as vain as me you'll just go back, say you lost it and get a whole new card with the experience of how the DMV camera is NOT your friend.

Race said...

And maybe sorta flirt with the lady this time. It'll make her day to have a handome hunk being nice to her. Only to get the pic you want, of course...

i'm with you about pics from below. i took my friend jason to a restaurant the other night b/c he's moving to stupid CT today and when i was paying the bill, he started taking a picture of me, FROM THE SIDE, AND WITH MY CHIN BENT TOWARDS MY CHEST. i was barely even aware of it before i started saying "if you take that picture from that angle, i will fucking cut you."

I dont think its a bad pic, more like an honest pic. we are all used to "working our angles", and seeing the reflection in the mirror we want to see. Sometimes these types of pix are like a reality check--like the zits on your ass at IML at the mart, it's ok, i'm into azz zzzits.

o i saw him - he just got out of jail for tying up a hooker or something. i never liked his music anyway.

1. Its NOT a reality pic
2. I DO NOT have pimples on my butt! Sometimes I might but I DID NOT have any then or now thank you very much and I have the photographs to prove it!!!

Yep I thought I looked great and hot the last time I had mine taken and found out that I really wasn't.

Race said...

When you have all those hot pics of yourself life is too short to have a shifty license pic that you have to look at againandagainandagain...

Dustyn said...

YOUR PIC LOOKS LIKE MINE!!!

David Mason said...

Thanks Gurl!

Hey David- Just Go To A Different DMV & Tell Them You Lost It Or That Your Wallet Was Stolen. That Pic Does Suck & As Much As You're Going To Have To Show Your ID Over The Next 8 yrs You Should Go Get A New One.
I've Had The DMV Photog "Take & Show" Me Over & Over Until I Was Happy With The Results. Even After She Gave Me Attitude Saying, " This Ain't Glamour Shots!" I Said, "Oh Yes It Is!" Everyone Can Take A Bad Picture But Having To Carry One Around In Your Pocket Is Fucked Up!

YELL, "DO OVER!!!!!"

Leatherpigboy said...

Im with Race tell em you lost it and hopefully they will take another pic and dont have it on computer file like they sometimes do, flirt if you have too to get a new pic....Love the cape LMAO!

David: Mine is exactly the same, and I was thinking the exact same thing about having it retaken. Everytime someone asks me for I.D. I start neauseous. The fact that you've actually let us see yours is MAJOR. In the words of that venerable group ABBA, you're a SUPER TROOPER Dave.

It's not too bad, but if you don't like it, that's what matters. I really didn't like my driver's license photo a few years back, but was too lazy to go the hellacious place called the Texas DMV, so i kept it. Then, when out jetskiing in Florida, lost it in the bay (totally unplanned!) I had to go get a new one, and the photo turned out really well. Except that i was really tan, with longer hair that was very dark brown as opposed to my normal blonde/dirty blonde. Essentially I look like a California-surfer-frat-jock guy instead of the pale Texas-musician-zany guy. hehehe.

FREAKY !!! said...

8 YEARS ????????? DAMN

Erik said...

That photo totally cracks me up, if I didn´t know it was you I´d think it was the FashionTV reporter from Ugly Betty! You DO need to lose that photo in some seedy underground sex club at 5a.m... Having seen so many super hot photos and videos - like the one with you and Francois by the poolside - of you it´s heartwarming to know that sometimes you can be caught from a weird angle too ;)

Sue said...

OMG! I can't stop laughing! You gotta get another one done!

Race said...

Or, on the other hand, it looks like you are some 16-year old that's got a really good fake ID!! Be prepared for some interrogation when you get carded sportin' that baby face of yours...

(awk)Word said...

Yeah... that's nasty. I think it's better if you keep it--show it off! I got a lot of tail when I had a bad DMV photo... (and a lot of free drinks from bartenders who took pity on me for such a shitty shot.)

Your expression in the picture showing it off: priceless.

the mrs said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!! I haven't laughed so hard all week. Amazing.

Hottie said...

Not a flattering pic, TBH, but I think you can pay to have another taken. Or you can say you lost it, and request a second one.

@ Dustyn That's just the funniest comment. I think I'd just peed my pants
