OH GOD! Do I hate the DMV. LOL

The Mom Jen said...

OH GOD you should see mine...add the terrible camera angle to being 9 months pregnant. Was the camera on the floor?!

Threeboys1mommy said...

Dude, how many cheeseburgers did you eat while you waited in line? ;-)

WeaselMomma said...

Too funny! I always totally primp and fuss when I have to get my DL pic taken, but I do have the best one ever!

Melisa with one S said...

OMG. I swear they rig those cameras to make almost everyone look different. My husband looked like a serial killer on his last license photo.

And I've had the same weight on my license for, oh, about ten years. Unfortunately the same weight has not been on my body for the same amount of time. :(

R.L.Scovens said...

That made me laugh out loud! Thank you!!!

Melissa said...

Too funny! I think they use a lens they find in those circu mirrors! Mine is awful too, and last time I had mine done, she yelled at me because I smiled in my pic and took it over!!

Bad DMV!(putting DMV in timeout) Bad bad DMV!

Kim H. said...

Those employees at the DMV are just plain EVIL!!!

Mary @ Giving Up On Perfect said...

Oh, so sorry to see that. :) I thought very carefully about how I wanted to look the last time I got my pic taken at the DMV. I decided that I wanted to smile - not cheesy, but pleasant. The result? A terrible smirk that makes me somehow look like my mother.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

I swear people are trained to make you look like that--drunk and guilty--it feeds into setting you up for when the cop pulls you over, right? My photo looks frighteningly similar, only with blotchy skin and slightly crossed eyes.

Laura said...

Oh my goodness.. so sorry!! You'd think they would let you do a do-over!!! Crazy DMV!

LceeL said...

OMG. I think I'm in love. I LOVE tall women. And you're purdy.

maggie said...

I just got my OK driver's license last week. Same exact problem. They are sadistic.

Jocelyn said...

Don't feel bad, sister. My driver's license pic didn't look like me either. ;D

Rachel said...

Oh good gawd woman!
I swear they have photoshop and just add badness to pics.

The good thing, you REALLY don't look like that!! ;-)

LOL. Sorry.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

I think they do it on purpose

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

Wow. That's unfortunate. But think of it this way - if you ever get pulled over, or carded for buying alcohol, you'll look much better in person!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I swear the click the photo at the worst possible time on purpose. I went to AAA last time and they let me retake the photo because it was bad. Try them next time.

ohhh...

oh.

oh my...

ha ha. i once went to the DMV and it was a slow day. The lady behind the desk saw the pic and demanded I pose for another (twice) yea I am that photogenic!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Mine is horrible! Last year I had to get my license renewed and it was the first one since having my son...it was not pretty!

Prior to that my picture was on from right after I got married and I was thin and looked so young!

Rona's Home Page said...

I just switch my Driver's license from California to Nevada. I have no plans on even looking at the photo. Ugh!
I feel a great scrapbook moment coming on.
I'm glad that WW Day is here. I'm nursing a cold and it's been alot of fun blog visiting.
Have a terrific week!

Roger said...

Holy Crap you're tall!! :)

In Illinois they let you take and re-take your picture until you like it. Within reason, of course.

Miss said...

*snort*

Um. Wow, you are tall. Yea.

~Sandy~ said...

I think the DMV purchases camera's that make you look nothing like you do in real life! Too funny...Happy WW!!!

Elaine A. said...

Oh please, you know the pics are never very good. They have some kind of funny cameras there or something...

NicEmMOM said...

i still love ya! who really looks at the pic? right!

i still love ya! who really looks at the pic? right!

Tammy said...

LOL!


Last time I renewed mine the photo lady looked at is and said (I swear)
"this says you weigh 120, do you want to change that??" I looked at her and said, "no, thank you"

Sheesh.

Tara R. said...

They use funhouse mirrors. There should be a law against doing that to a woman.

Don Mills Diva said...

It's just the law of the driver's license photo: don't try and fight it.

Huckdoll said...

LOL. My own license pics have gone way downhill over the years. Passport should be interesting too :)

Maggie, Dammit said...

I personally think this is yet another example of the vast snowy conspiracy that is Wisconsin. Adding this proof to my arsenal.

(No worries: You are beautiful.) :)

lisaschaos said...

Oh you are brave! I would never show my driver's license photo! What do they do?

Petula said...

Yes, I too think they do it on purpose, but I have to admit it gave me a little chuckle. :D

angie said...

I have the same question. I'm pretty sure they think it's hilarious to point the camera UP making everyone look....not the best. :)

Kmommy said...

Hilarious!! My husbands is simalarly awful! :) he said it was due to the lady taking his pic, she kept telling him to move this way and that and tilt his head up and down, so he was getting mad :)

Mrs4444 said...

This is AWESOME. Brilliant post (and brave, too; you're sweet.)
