My 7th fucking trip to the DMV when trying to reinstate my license. Every single time they scrutinized my paperwork and always managed to find something “wrong” and would send me away to fix it.
On this 7th trip, they finally resorted to, “you have no proof that you ever had a license,” despite my piles of paperwork showing my driving record, among other things.
I refused to leave the seat and said, “you people are fucking monsters.”
A manager was called. we argued, he said he believed that I had had a license, but there was just no proof, and he couldn’t risk accepting my paperwork in case someone checked it.
I said I refused to leave the seat until I knew exactly what was needed. Manager said, “tell you what, I can contact <last state I lived in>,” and could get a verification that I had had a license there. It would take 3 minutes.
That’s when I yelled in the DMV, “WHY WASN’T THAT THE FIRST FUCKING THING YOU SAID?”
Anyway, I got my license back.
