Dear readers, Prince Hamlet’s immortal “to be or not to be: that is the question” echoed through me ears as I heard the DMV’s employee’s voice, as I asked about my handicap parking permit….
DMV lady: Your neuro needs to fill in some additional information..
Me: Okay, he can do that, but what’s the point of the questions anyway??
DMV lady: Well, it does have a point you see, with this additional information we determine if you can continue to drive or not. If the determination is against you, than your licence is going to be revoked, good news though is that you’ll get your handicap parking permit.
Me: Whaaaaaat!!!! Are you serious? I don’t drive great distances, but I do go up and about my neighborhood.
DMV lady: You’ll have to decide, which is more important BEFORE submitting the additional info.
I walked towards my husband, with a “you have to be kidding me” face. When I told him we were both surprised to an extent that we were speechless for a while. I’m still trying to figure out what happened there.
However, the truth is that I need my driving’s licence much more than I do my parking permit. So, there you guys my decision is “not to be” and my question is answered.
Next time I’m aggravated about my parking permit, I’ll just be thankful I have my driver’s licence at least for the time being.
Life is life and some things are just out of our hands. We need to face them and move forward, if we dwell too much around them they’ll just weigh us down.
Thanks for stopping by and most importantly spread awareness during this month about Myasthenia Gravis and the day to day struggles we face each and every day.
See you around fellow snowflakes.
