Thread: So... How'd Your Day Go?

  1. #6661
    DVLA have been making it really hard for me to renew my driving license, their latest move was to insist that I take a test of my peripheral vision. You have to sit in front of a screen looking at a red light and press a button every time a white light flashes. The red light moves about from time to time and the white ones can be anywhere. I was told I might have to do it several times as they were very exacting about what they would accept. First attempt I registered 100% of the flashes and no false positives, best possible score. I then had to do the standard 'Read the letters on the chart', one eye, then the other then both. My worst attempt was four lines below the minimum they accept, so they had better send me a new licence soon!

    Haha, I'm having the same battle with MOT and car tax:

    "Renew your tax on line. Simply supply your sixteen digit number"
    "Okay, where's that"
    "Oh, we don't give it out."

    Are they asking for the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)? I think that's 17 characters, though.

    I am sort of hoping someone has the courage to read through my final version of my story in the workshop. I used ghotit as a way to circumvent my disability and dysgraphia. I will return the favor. Today's the last day for the contest.

    My day has been mixed so far. I make many mistakes I realize in the story. I tried to compensate by trying out a new software. I think it reads well but it was a lot of work to correct it. I don't want to quit writing (I will probably continue). I spent a lot of time and effort and I know it is only human to fail but I try harder. Reading out loud helps. If anyone is interested I can read a 10,000 word story. Just tell me what feedback someone is looking for.
    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.

    No such luck. I got it sorted though - found my V5C under a whole pile of other sh!t.

    Actually my wife found it. Under a whole pile of other crap. That was literally right in front of me.
