POTD: Examiner Encounters

Posted on Updated on

From October 2014 to August 2016, I was a Driver’s License Examiner. I had several interesting encounters and experiences. The job wasn’t bad but, HQ was a terrible problem. Politics is a nasty business.

This kid was the customer of one of my co-workers but, I started to giggle when I read it. He didn’t mind me taking a picture. ~Vic

      Some minor ones. One kid backed over a mailbox on a rural 3-point turn (I was working relief in a small town in the county north of my home office). Another kid backed over a short concrete pylon in our across-the-street training section (after that episode, I made SURE my drivers understood that they were THERE).

      A Brit pulled out of our parking lot and proceeded to drive on the left side of the road. I asked him if he remembered what country he was in.

      There were many near misses as many drivers don’t understand what YIELD means (my drivers and the others we had to navigate around).

        Those cracked me up. Especially the Brit. I’m not surprised one bit. I figure it takes some getting used to.

          The breathalyzer people & the diabetics were interesting. One guy had a prosthetic leg…that he disconnected, folded & put in my lap.

          Then there’s the rides in sports cars, badass jeeps, tricked out trucks, some 18 wheelers for farms and the fire trucks.

      It was so cool. And, I was amused that I understood it.

      GAH. I’m such a geek!
