Two hundred and forty nine pounds! Do you know what this means? I actually weigh what I said I did on my driver’s license and I only had to lose 120 pounds to do it!
If DMV workers had a dollar for every pound people have lied about on their driver’s licenses, they sure wouldn’t have to work at the DMV anymore. Though they probably would because it’d be pretty lucrative.
I think the Department of Transportation is missing out on an excellent revenue opportunity here ;) Just imagine if you had to pay a dollar for every pound you got to knock off your driver’s license weight. Forget speeding tickets, this is where the money is! The Catholic church used to do something like that with indulgences. Buy an indulgence and your sin got wiped away. Money really could buy weight loss.
ETA: I was hacking my blogging software code last night and it looks like I got a little carried away and comments were disabled until around noon EST. Sorry if anyone tried to comment and couldn’t! It’s all fixed now and I’ll try to remind myself not to mess with things I don’t understand.
