Odd situation again, today, in that part of my moving here requires that I get a new license. Getting a new license requires my old license and my birth certificate, both of which I have. They’d also have accepted my military ID, but I was never in the military. Or a Visa, but like most people I do not have one since I haven’t been out of the country in awhile.
Problem today is that they won’t accept my birth certificate because my birth certificate is the original – the actual certified document issued after my birth. What they require is a certified copy of my birth certificate instead of the real thing. Shades of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, to be sure. Where’s DeNiro when you need him?
