Driver's License

The Day Playgirl Got Her Driver's License

And on with the smiles! :o)

It’s a miracle I ever got my driver’s license.

First let me say that I had driven a car two times in my life, when I decided to go get my driver’s license. A high school friend of mine drove me to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles in his old standard car. I was so excited!

I passed the written test, then went outside and got into the car with this examiner who greeted me with a big smile. I started the car and started driving off. Both our heads were bobbing back and forth, and on more than one ocassion, motor would stall and our bodies would jump so high, our heads would bump the ceiling. To this day, I just can’t understand how our necks didn’t break. One of the times, the car shook so badly that the solid steel nob on the floor shift popped off and landed right by the man’s feet. While still driving, I reached down to try and grab it, the car jumped the curb, but was stopped instantly by this blood curdling scream the man had yelled. He was a nervous wreck. He told me to stop the car, and I did. He grabbed the ball from between his feet, shoved it in rage, back on the floor shift, and yelled at me to never continue driving a vehicle while bending down to reach for something on the floor. I started the car again and on we went, heads continued bobbing back and forth like crazy. His face was now the color of ash, and he wasn’t smiling.

We got to these two poles, and he told me in a trembling voice to park the car in between the two poles. I pulled in and ran over the pole in front of me. He told me to stop the car, as he got out to stand the pole again, then got back in the car. I pulled in and managed not to run over the pole, but when I hit reverse, I ran over the pole in back of me. Again, he got out and stood the pole up, and got in the car. This went on forever. As much as I tried, I continued running over the poles.

In desperation, he yelled at me to drive back to the license branch parking lot. When we got there, he was shaking like crazy, and looked just terrible. Close to tears, I asked him if I had failed. He told me NO! You passed, because if I fail you, you’ll have to come back, and with my luck, I’ll get you again!

As God is my witness, this is how I got my drivers license.

Kids, could you please tell me how you got yours?

I took this pic this morning of a couple of trees in my front yard. Still wearing summer clothes because it's still warm and sunny.

I really hope Old Man Winter doesn't forget to drop by, like he did last year!! I want to make a snowman!

The written test was okay for me, but the driving part was just about impossible. I thought I was a pro at driving, just because I'd driven a couple of times.

I will never forget the poor guy who had the misfortune to have gotten me that day!

I just can't imagine you not liking driving!!

Dear One, one day I'm going to take pictures of this city, where we have all the FREE TRADE gigantic diesels on the freeways. I'm also going to take pics of Juarez, Mexico. You have no idea how horrible it is, but I LOVE IT! :o)

I think I'll share my experiences while driving in Mexico soon!

I like the looks of your ass.
You mean you need a license to drive a vehicle with?
Nov. 9th, 2006 12:31 am (UTC)
You forgot ...
That's my ass all right. Even asses need a driver’s license, or it off to the pen!

You forgot to mention my big floppy ears! ;o)

Hmmm, been driving for 25 years or so and don't remember what my test was like other than it was in a Chevy Vega and I passed with flying colors. I'm a very good driver. Better than anybody on the road with me!!

I was an excellent Hummv driver when I was in the Army, but then, there really wasn't anything I could hit! :o)

Glad you didn't have problems getting your license. I was very lucky to have gotten mine. I am a pretty good driver now, but I still have a big problem parking between two cars. One time, as I kept trying over and over again to park between two cars, a guy yelled out at me in frustration, that I wasn't driving a ship!

I took drivers education however I only went to the first and last class. I had my tonsils out inbetween. My mother helped me do all the book work (mainly read me the answers) which I turned in in one big pile. The drivers ed. teacher decided I did "SO WELL" on the written work he wouldn't make me do his driving test to pass the class. Not only did I not have to do his driving test but I got a waiver for the driving portion of the BMV test too. The written BMV test was set so you could only miss 3 questions. On number 4 you failed and had to come back. I missed 4 but the lady gradeing it has known me since I was in 3rd grade, and her kids went to the same baby sitter as my sister and I, asked me if I was sure the answers to numbers blah, blah, and blah were correct of if I thought they were A, B, and C. I changed them to the answers she gave and drove home! So basically I'm like you. I didn't get my liscense. It was given to me...lol.

I was thinking about becoming a DMV examiner when I came back home. Thanks for making the decsion for me.
I guess choose something safer...like the Infantry.....
Nov. 10th, 2006 08:55 pm (UTC)

I recommend infantry for you, also.

The poor guy looked thirty or forty when he greeted me with his great big smile, and looked like a shriveled old man when he yelled GOODBYE! :o(

Now that officer sure was a clever guy by just handing you your license! The poor guy that got me should have done the same with me. If he had, he'd look 10 years younger today! :o)
Nov. 9th, 2006 05:45 am (UTC)
with a sad heart I say goodbye Savanah I love you!!! ;(
Nov. 9th, 2006 10:06 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry Savanah but I had no choice, I hope you will understand this someday,
and know that I do still think that you are a wonderful person

I didn't get my license until 23. I didn't really need one as I was able to catch a bus or walk where I needed to go. Once I got out of the Navy, then I needed a car to get around: for work and school. My dad took me out late at night and he taught me to drive in empty parking lots around the mall. It took me a few weeks to learn how to drive my automatic truck. I had went to an auction place and bought an old used army mp truck before I even knew how to drive or had a license! lol I spent about two hours a day for two months before going to get my license. I was nervous of course but my test went very smoothly.
Now when I went to C.R.England's truck driving school, that was a nightmare! I couldn't shift gears, didn't really know how to drive a stick shift either and they passed me any how so I could go out with my driving instructor to learn how to really drive an 18 wheeler by driving down the highway! That is why there are so many 18 wheeler wrecks now a days. They send students out to drive who can't really handle their rig yet! I took out a stop sign, nearly hit a car when turning and grinded gears every time I shifted... but they passed me any how. I had no business being behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler.

I remember my friend driving me twice out in the boonies, and then letting me drive his car. I did manage to run over a couple of cactus. He had to be the bravest guy in the world, and the most patient, when I told him I was ready to get my test. I felt so grown up! :o)

I really shouldn't of been given a passing score, but then, I'm can now see how the poor guy who had the misfortune to be with me that day, just wanted to make sure he'd never, EVER see me again.

I now understand why, after you telling me how easily people pass those diesel rig driving test, I cringe when I find myself pan caked on all sides, including front and back, by them on the freeway.
