Off I went to the licensing office to renew my drivers license! A piece of cake - after all, no exams, no practical tests, just a nuisance that will require some patience! As they say in the classics: "Yea, right!"
Patience I needed, yes. Standing in line to get the necessary form, standing in line to hand in the necessary form, standing in line to have my eyes tested... And this is where my big mouth dropped me flat on my face... I failed my eye test! (So there was a test you see....Grrrr.)
I have an unusual eye condition. It involves the communication between the eye and the brain - much to complicated for me to understand or explain. I wear special spectacles that enables me to see perfectly but the prescribed eye test involves a part where my spectacles just did not help and that is where I failed completely.
So the end result was: I failed the only test there was.
Solution: A quick visit to my optician on Tuesday afternoon, and voila!, I'll get my new drivers license.
Lesson learned: Keep your big mouth shut!
(I have to go for a blood test soon - think I'll pass that?)
