Brickbat: Your Photo Doesn't Do You Justice

When Jennifer Lohss got her Arizona driver's permit, everything looked fine. Well, except for the fact it had the photograph and signature of someone else. After a local TV station asked the Motor Vehicles Division about the flawed permit, officials discovered they had issued at least eight permits with the wrong photo.

    This is probably the most egregious brickbat yet.

    Shouldn't that be "egregios"?

    Probably down under, as backwards as things are there, but this is the American internet.

    Sounds like a pretty solid deal to me dude.

    I think I'm losing it. Of all the comments above, RishJoMo's makes the most sense.

    Just take two brickbats to the face and we'll chack back with you in the morning.

    "I think it's both learning curve and perhaps some programming," Stanton said of the card errors. "So, we're looking at both of those."

    "The individuals who received the wrong photo and the wrong signature - the information they received was still theirs," she explained.

    This is just media sensationalism - why don't they cover all the times people got cards which had *their* photo and signature on it! But you only cover our brave DMV clerks, who put their lives on the line every day, when you think you've uncovered some sort of quote-unquote "mistake." With this constant drumbeat of negativity, no wonder there's such bad relations between the community and our clerks!

    A few car purchases ago, when the dealer received my new tags and registration card from the DMV, the registration card identified a vehicle completely different from what I had bought. The DMV told me that it would take up to three months to fix the error, but it also originally told me that if I didn't have it fixed within 30 days, my driver's license would be suspended.

    So, how did it play out?

    This could never happen with a birth certificate.
