License renewal a real problem

This one takes the cake. Today was the dreaded trip to motor vehicles for the license renewal. They have found a way to add to the waiting, smelly people, crying babies and uncomfortable chairs.

I finally get my turn at the counter and find that to get the new license they won't accept only the old license as identity verification. This makes perfect sense, the state won't take their issued official ID as a sole proof. You can't even make this stuff up any more.

An official state ID with a picture, that's not good enough. This is the dog chasing its own tail, what's next?
