This morning I walked down to the DMV to take the written test for my "Instructional Permit: Permits driving only. Not for ID purposes." One particular staffer was honestly terrifying. I told more than one person afterwards that I would've been crying if I didn't speak native English. She was just barking at everyone. The guy taking pictures was very nice. Mine turned out great except I look scrubby, which is cuz I was pretty scrubby.
Anyways, I can drive now, as long as there is someone sitting shotgun who has a real license.
