Ever have the overwhelming need to rant? Shout to the heavens about how life is unfair? I want to, but I'm not going to do that. For one thing the whole problem is mainly my own fault.

Back in Nov found out I needed my birth certificate to get my driver's licence renewed (which is a separate rant issue). Well I ordered it, just now finding out it will be March before I get it. Mistakes and bad decisions have led me to order another directly from my birth county because I can get it quicker.


Of course I'm stressed out of my gourd helping my wife recover from (more than one) strokes, but I shouldn't use that as an excuse. I'm more inclined to write a comedy piece on my experiences. Self-abuse can be funny.

Hope everyone else is having a better new year.


I went through a similar experience getting mine. Three trips to the DMV I had to wait until I could get a copy of my social security card which somehow I managed to loss in the 46 years since I got it...gee not in my wallet, Huh!

New York now wants to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens. I have been here 37 years and it took me three weeks to get mine....

Write the humor piece, I am looking forward to it.

Why yes. Yes I do.
It sounds like you could be much more bitter than you sound. You stoicism is good to see. Your grit has got you this far, it will carry you the rest of the way.
Please, continue to rant. It's therapeutic.
