After that, I decided to go to the DMV for my new driver license. I thought for sure there would be a long line because 1) there's always a long line at the DMV 2) the SS office was so quick, knowing my luck, I'd be at the DMV for hours.
I walked in & grabbed a number. I took off my coat & my number is called. Shocked I walked over to the photo area & got my picture taken! I had to sign the piece of paper with my new name for to print on the license! Cool but surreal! It felt so crazy to be signing Jamie Cox instead of Jamie Barlow after 34 years of living!
After the new photo, I sat for about 5 minutes till my number was called for the application process. The guy behind the counter was so friendly and congratulated me on my recently marriage. He asked me where I was born. When I told him Ohio & he said, "I just broke up with someone from Ohio, but I can tell you're nicer than her!" I just laughed....what else could I do?!
I was literally at the DMV for 9 minutes!! I couldn't believe it! I gave myself the whole day to do both the Social Security office & DMV & I was finished by 10:45am! All around awesome day!!
So today I received my new license & SS card in the mail! The license is a new design! Haven't seen one like this before! The little picture on the right isn't a hologram, it's see through! Also, it's in black & white when the last one was in color!!
