My day at the local license facility. I survived but I wonder how? A fun account of that day.
The license lady was in shock when I turned the washer and wipers on instead of the signal lights.
I really pondered for days, should I write about this most embarrassing account of my day at the local license facility. To say that I was embarrassed is an understatement of the decade.
When I arrived I first took the test on the computer and did well, a score of 93. Then all hell broke lose! This sweet lady said that we would go out to my car and check a few things. She said that she would stand behind my car and check my brake lights. She said to pump my brakes twice and it was good. Then she stood in front of my car and said, " Turn on your left and right signal lights. I don't know what happened. I completely lost all sense of reality. I turned on my wipers and washer, I could hardly see her face when I did it was a look of total disbelief. She then cautiously entered my car telling me to drive ' carefully '. I did everything she asked. When we got back to the facility, I asked in a pleading voice, did I pass? She reluctantly said, " Yes " I then took the vision test and passed with no glasses. She then took my picture, I looked like a deer in floodlights. She said, " Just relax " and took another picture which was better, but would never win any beauty contest. The main thing is that I passed and the next time I will take it again is 2019. I refuse to think that far ahead, but I must say that I have washed my window several times as a reminder that the signals are on the left side.
