Default Forward Motion Picture



I'm at the DMV this morning... Surrounded by bureaucracy dreamed up by grad school drop outs and handed out by high school rejects. I hate this place with the passion of a man obsessed. If there is a hell, this is it. I'm sure of it.

In any case, I ...

I myself was at the DMV yesterday renewing my driver license here in Georgia. While there I texted my wife that I had never seen so many fat ugly sloppy people at one place in my life. I also commented that you could catch something just sitting there. This morning I woke up with a sore throat!

Wow. That was pretty interesting. This is an example of an old thread that contains something a lot of people could learn from but would have never seen because it's from several years ago. Well, unless they searched for particular topics by themselves, then they would..

Thanks for sharing this one however.

yes, ryan, the dmv here in fla. is hell, to renew a fla. license you need, a certified copy of birth certificate, social security card, some other form of picture i.d., and this is the best, an electric bill ??? if you are a women you will also need a copy of your marriage license or divorce decree.......

Well that is one of life's mysteries solved!! Now if we can just see more of it done I'd be tickled. Would love to see what that Leica could do at Bonneville today.

Thanks!!

Since the object is moving left to right and the shutter is opening right to left the image would be compressed.

it wouldnt be leaned forward like my photoshop, I dont think, but thats the best I could do this morning...

Notice the photographic image of Mildred does not lean in one direction or the other. That's because Mildred is not fast.

A little O/T true DMV story to make you laugh next time you find yourself in line there.

My best friends brother Ian, was standing in line at the DMV on a busy day in metro Detroit with his three small kids,.. Just about any given day you'll find at least a 45 minute wait with a lot of folks in line.

Well the kids are getting restless, as kids do,... and finally after an hour in line,Ian finds himself next to be waited on,.. He has both hands full of paperwork and three little kids all around him,.... All eyes were on the guy that would be next !

Just as the Lady say "Next !",... His 6 year old son decides to pull himself up by Ian's back pockets,... This didn't work out so well, as he actually "Pants-ed" Him right there in front of everybody !!!!!,.... Now Ian had both hands full of paperwork, And his pants around his ankles,........

The entire place exploded in laughter!,... So Ian had to bend down and lay his paperwork on the floor, Before he could pull up his pants,... As he started to raise his trousers,.. He realized he had to unbuckle his belt and unzip before he could get them all the way up. Did I mention he was at the front of the line ???

Anyway,.. He puts himself back together,.. gathers up his paperwork and his children,.. Walks up to the window,... and the lady was laughing so hard she was crying,.. so he had to stand there in total embarrassment and wait until she could compose herself enough to take care of him.

As he went to leave, she said, "Come back anytime,.... And bring the kids",... He said people were still laughing as he left. He told me not to tell anybody,... so keep this to yourself.

Only thing that could be worse is our DMV in Merced, CA. Seems like every clerk is vying for the position, "Most abrasive"...
Stupid is an adjective that comes to mind.
