My Driver’s License Looks Terrible

Now that I am working on systems to produce ID cards I have begun to notice different things. One of the things I have noticed is how bad my driver’s license looks. It looks like a cross between a failed experiment in fungal growth and the “before photo” from a Tide commercial.  I have kept my license in my wallet, along with all my other cards; yet it singularly looks I have been using it to scrape mud off my shoes or perhaps to clean the bathroom toilet.

I do not know why my license looks so bad, but I suspect it has to do with the matte surface that Minnesota uses on the card. I looked at an earlier, expired license that had a glossy surface and it did not look nearly so bad. So, please, Minnesota do something to improve your driver’s licenses. My license doesn’t expire until 2014, and I can’t imagine how bad it will look then.

    My license expires next month and I an scared to death to get a new picture taken. My old one looks like an old lady. I swear she looks much older than I look. What are they going to do to me this time?

    LOL, funny commentary Mark, but yeah, gotta agree that looks bad! But hey, look on the bright side; everyone who sees this post knows to send you a birthday card for March 19! What a happy one you will have!
