Huh, yours is probably similar vintage to mine. Never occurred to me to get a new one. I should look into that.My social security card wasn't valid for this because...uh...because.........uh......it's not acceptable. Granted, it was issued 55 years ago (5th grade social studies teacher had us all apply for one, as a class project) but dammit, it's the ORIGINAL CARD.
Common sense ain't all that common anymore.Three hours of my life disappeared, I'll never get them back...
Kentucky is finally issuing RealID drivers licenses that bring them in line with most other states; ID that can be used at airports, etc. I made an appointment, drove to Paducah with certified birth certificate, old DL, social security card, concealed carry permit, university photo ID, recent utility bill, etc., to confirm my identity.
Denied. My social security card wasn't valid for this because...uh...because.........uh......it's not acceptable. Granted, it was issued 55 years ago (5th grade social studies teacher had us all apply for one, as a class project) but dammit, it's the ORIGINAL CARD. I guess he'd never seen one that old. "No, you need to get a new card. I can give you the phone number of---" My response: "Never mind, I should have known. After all, this is Kentucky." Thirty-six years of teaching higher education chemistry in this state has taught me that the critical thinking skills of the residents are, in general.....less than optimum, shall we say.
I still have my original SS card from the mid 1960's. I'll need to check with the Wisconsin DMV if it is acceptable.Huh, yours is probably similar vintage to mine. Never occurred to me to get a new one. I should look into that.
(I'll also note that I can't recall ever having been asked to produce it before).
Someone from a different forum I use sometimes once wrote that it isn't called common sense because it's common; it's called common sense because it's about common things. (So sense about common things is, sadly, uncommon.)Common sense ain't all that common anymore.
Ha! Just did another couple of hours, which included me yelling "En Garde" to the dog and dancing back and forth.Well, if you hadn't mentioned "barbed" then it sounded like moving forward and back on a narrow strip of floor poking one of three nearly identical rods-with-handles at an imaginary opponent. (Really, no kidding, that's what I thought you meant.) Getting outside and accomplishing something sounds better.
I used my county issued birth certificate from Garfield County, Oklahoma that I had to get for my security clearance way back when.I went to get my Real ID (in Missouri) - showed my original SS card (got it in 1967). I was told it wasn't valid because it was laminated> I told the bright lightbulb behind the counter that was how I got it when it was sent to me back then. He said it wasn't allowed now. I asked him to show me where it said no lamination and was told he didn't have time to show me but that was what he was told. I read to him what they sent me to bring with me and nowhere did it say no lamination on SS card and was told oh well go apply for another and come back then. Still don't have my Real ID -
