It’s great when a plan comes together. I proposed that we do the drivers license stuff out in an undisclosed rural DMV office, far from Charlotte.
After a few driving errors on my part, and an initial paperwork issue with insurance, we were quickly handed over to a woman DMV employee who recently moved here from New York. She was polite and helpful dealing with the complexity of changing her name and residency at the same time.
While we were doing our business, it was hard to ignore the man who came in about the same time. He was needing a state ID card. That requires a birth certificate and proof of address. All his worldly belongings seemed to be in a briefcase.
He indicated that he had an ID card about 10 years ago, and a driver’s license for a while before his license was revoked.
His story meandered on about how he didn’t get a new ID and something related to drug convictions. At this point, he volunteered for no particular reason that he thought Obama was a great President and how great it was that he gets his healthcare for free.
When it came time to pay for the state ID card, he offered up the information that since he is a felon, the people at DSS told him that qualifies him as “disabled” and he was supposed to get the ID card for free.
Here are the actual rules
After the guy left, the employees were rolling their eyes. I would not be surprised if they had just issued a fake ID.
