I'm trying really hard to find my happy place....as I think about renewing my driving licence.
But first some background to my story.... one of the down sides of become a newly fledged American is that you now have stuff that you have to change ...
One A trip to the social security to alter my status , Apply for a US passport, Register to vote and as it turned out because I only had six months left on my green card when I renewed my driving licence in October ... I have to renew my driving licence too!
They renewed it for only six month YES you see where I'm going .....my driving licence expires at the end of July and because you can't do get a passport or change your SSC or register to vote without a valid driving licence... but I can't get a licence with a full five years without the updated SSC
Rush rush ! Can you see where it's going?
Round and round the merry go round Where to start first?????
Now I got my SSC card changed today. A twenty five minute wait .... but wait that's good... it was n't the getting my SSC that has me mad as a hornet NO it's my driving Licence.
Why you ask ???? because
Georgia's powers that be, have decide that they are only letting people who had ready proved their citizenship to renew online....Okay I get it I'm new they want to see my paperwork in person........ but wait.
This doesn't just mean people like me who have just become new citizens No this mean everyone, even people who were born here live here in the USA all their life's ......... everyone who wants to renew or get an licence to drive on Georgia's roads is going to have to GO down to the office and wait in line and hand over their birth certificate to prove they were actually born here (rising hands in disbelieve)
As you can imagine the lines are around the buildings.... the news stations are full of the mess and yes I have to bear the heat and go do this ...... Am I happy Hell no!
What were they thinking, Oops sorry! that would imply that the Georgia state government had a brain because surely they don't ..... HOW could they?
When they take a system, that is barely working as it was and then double it ten fold....... and yes one of my rights as a new citizen is YES I can voice my views
so this is my rant...... sorry! the old happy Wendy will be back soon...
