POTD: Examiner Encounters 3.0

Posted on Updated on

I posted a couple of pictures from my Examiner days back in May. I found another one. I took several pix while working but, I have them scattered. There may be more.

I don’t remember why she had the Service Dog. She certainly wasn’t blind and didn’t have any disabilities. I think she may have been a trainer. What an adorable baby.

Shutterbug Saturday: Training

Posted on Updated on

My paternal grandfather was a firefighter, my brother-in-law is and my dad nearly was. I grew up going with my grandmother to my hometown’s fire department HQ, bringing lunch for my grandfather. When he retired, he worked dispatch.

As a Drivers License Examiner, I got to give road tests in firetrucks.

I was lucky to catch this. I was walking home from the local market. ~Vic

POTD: Examiner Encounters 2.0

Posted on Updated on

When I posted my first Examiner Encounter, I should have numbered it. I have a few of these things.

I climbed into a guy’s car for a road test and met his little friend. I asked him if he minded me taking a picture of it. He posed her a little bit for me. Then, I asked him “Favorite past-time?” “Nah.” was his response. “It was gift from a friend…a female friend, no less.”

This comes under the heading of “Things You Don’t See Everyday.” I DO miss this job sometimes. ~Vic

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
