You know how every once in awhile something really good & unexpected happens....something kind of random that you might not necessarily wish to happen but when it does, you're grateful?
I just renewed my drivers license online!
I didn't have to wait in line. I didn't have to wrestle Katie while I waited in line. I didn't have to worry about some of the people I was waiting in line with...I live in South Carolina...I can encounter some pretty backwoods type people on a daily basis!
I didn't even know my license was expired until Friday when I went to cash a check at the bank. The conversation went a little like this:
Teller: (through the intercom) Jacinda, do you have a valid i.d.?
Me: I sent you my driver's license.
Teller: (a little exasperated) Yes, but it's expired.
Me: (genuinely surprised) It is?!?! Oh...um...(looking through my wallet wondering what else in the world I had that would prove who I am)
Teller: Yes, it is.
Me: Oh....gosh....um.....(still fumbling through my wallet even though I knew I didn't have another picture i.d.)
Teller: (quite sarcastically in my opinion) Well, I'll go ahead and cash it this time but after this you'll have to have a valid i.d.
I mean, come on. I understand it's the law and that's fine, but am I any less who I am just because my license expired? The teller truly was kind of mean about it. But, I suppose it's a good thing she told me because I sure had no clue it had expired on my birthday!
