Yes, I Am Giving You the Evil Eye

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.

Ok, maybe don't be afraid of this picture I found of the older guy who is giving "The Look," but not really "The Evil Eye."  I just Google Imaged "evil eye" and they weren't playing.  Some creeeepy stuff popped up.

I guess I could have gone with this one instead:

But whatever.  I digress.

Anywho...Evil Eye.  Back to the story.

I had to go to the DMV yesterday...Ah-ha!  Now you understand the evil eye, huh?

I had what amounts to a pleasant experience up until the very end when I had to get my picture taken.  I HATE getting my picture taken, it makes me nervous, to the point where I am pretty sure my palms were sweating.  So I truck up to window 8 where there is one counter and computer, in front of which is this line divider thingy up with a big sign that says "Wait behind the line until it is your turn."  Fair enough.  It's in the corner of the DMV, so really you would be totally getting in the way otherwise.

It is my turn, I go up to the counter, sit my purse down, hand the dude my paper, get my thumbprint scanned again, sign my name and am about to step directly to my left to take the pic when this dude in a suit comes barreling up next to me--ignoring the sign!--and starts asking the DMV worker questions about how long it's going to take to get his replacement ID.

Excuse me?!  Can you not read?  Do you think you are more important then the rest of the people here?  Can you not wait your turn?  Because now I have to step away from my purse with you standing right there and try to look like I don't want to murder you in a picture ID that will be permanently displayed on my card for at least the next 4 years.  So help me, if I look like a sociopath on my driver's license picture because of this I need more picture stress!  I'm already afraid I blinked when the flash went off, therefore making me look stoned.  Just what I need, a government ID that makes me look like an angry stoner.  For the love of all that's holy people...
