Dear lady at the DMV

 

Dear lady at the DMV: Sometimes it’s not racism.

   

If there’s a discrepancy between your documents, and they question that?

      – it’s not racism

   

If the passport office in NY state accepted it, but the State of NJ doesn’t?

       – it’s not racism

   

If the name on the card you’re presenting for ID, doesn’t exactly match your birth certificate?

       – it’s not racism

   

If your birth certificate says “Shelly” and you happen to go by “Shelley”, just because (!), without getting a legal name change and they don’t take it?

       – it’s not racism

   

If the person at the counter keeps sending you to the supervisor because your shite’s not in order?

      – it’s not racism

   

Look – it’s the DMV (Sorry – Motor Vehicle Commission). You know it’s gonna be long and tedious and annoying. But if your paperwork is not on point and somebody previously decided to let it go, it doesn’t obligate them to do the same.

   

Be annoyed. Be angry. Be frustrated. Hell write a letter or a scathing blog post.

   

But –

   

1) Don’t touch any of the employees. Even though it wasn’t done violently (hand on the shoulder) – technically that’s assault. Which the officer told you when he was walking up. (The same officer you challenged earlier when he said it’s too crowded, some of you have to wait outside ‘til I call you.)

   

and –

 

2) Don’t call it racism, when it’s not. (Especially when 30 seconds ago you were complaining loudly about “foreigners who can’t speak English”)

For as far back as Duncan could remember, the Garps had gone every summer to Dog’s Head Harbor, New Hampshire, where the miles of beach in front of Jenny Fields’ estate were ravaged by a fearful undertow. When Walt was old enough to venture near the water, Duncan said to him – as Helen and Garp had, for years, said to Duncan – ‘Watch out for the undertow.’ Walt retreated, respectfully. And for three summers Walt was warned about the undertow. Duncan recalled all the phrases.

‘The undertow is bad today.’

‘The undertow is strong today.’

‘The undertow is wicked today.’ Wicked was a big word in New Hampshire – not just for the undertow.

And for years Walt reached out for it. From the first, when he asked what it could do to you, he had…
