IT'S HAPPENING MORE LATELY

We drove to Tulsa  yesterday to renew my Military ID.  It took two and a half hours.  When we finally got the new ID they handed me one with a picture on it of some fat old lady.  I swear this person must be following me around because she is appearing more and more in my photos.

Stalking is an increasingly serious problem in todays society.
That and I claim gravity is the other problem. Ever since the Democrats took over they've been turning it up and making the most simple tasks harder and harder to do. Seems like politics gets injected into everything now days.
Well that and I'm sure I'm getting taller. I know I am because it's getting hard to reach down and get the golf ball out of the cup.

I sure can relate to this one:)

Pat MacKenzie said...

LOL. Isn't it amazing how those old people sneak into our pictures! Happens to me all the time.

Cliff -- I believe it is called "photo bombing". That is when someone else jumps in your photo. This was an interesting visit to the base for my ID. We signed in with only two ahead of us. One active duty fellow jumped in ahead of us, which is the rule, and he took forever. Despite that, it still took 1 1/2 hours to help us. One person was handling the IDs while a multitude of high ranking individuals paraded around laughing and talking. It was very frustrating since four years ago we were helped a lot faster with many more in line. It was all Ron could do not to start running the show. Oh wait a minute, who was our Commander and Chief four years ago????

Lynn -- Glad to know it's not just me. Why does that person staring back at me not resemble the person I know that I am? I am very anxious to try your spring onion pie recipe. Wonder what cheese could be substituted?

Changes in the wind -- You too, huh?

Pat MacKenzie -- Okay, sounds like we are all in the same fix. Invasion of the Body Snatchers all over again! LOL You certainly have every right to be proud of your marathon family. What a great bunch!

I know how that feels, but you don't look anything like that photo!!!

Beverly said...

Funny how that happens. I came out of a restroom at an airport. I lookd in the mirror and wondered who that old woman was looking at me. Then I had the horrible realization that I was looking at myself.

exactly

Nezzy said...

I'm sayin', this is happin' in epidemic proportions!!! Heeehehehe!

Girl, ya crack me up!

God bless and have an amazin' day sweetie!!! :o)

I'm always totally shocked when I see my photo. I hear you, but it's what's going inside that matters right?

Granny Annie said...

Judy -- I know. That gal looks good compared to me:)

Beverly -- Those mirrors can sometimes give us heart attacks. Gee, we've lost track a while haven't we?

Cliff -- yep, yes, exactly, uh huh, you bet...

Nezzy -- Epidemic is right. And you're the one that goes around cracking people up!

LL Cool Joe -- You're too young yet to be hopping on this bandwagon.

We do a lot with the VA and veterans at work, and I hear so many horror stories about the red tape. Doesn't seem to matter which administration.

Snaggle Tooth said...

Joe makes the point tho- that we all feel this way- not recognizing our known mirror self-image in other lenses... I think it's the angle we look at ourselves with, n the ID bandits always shoot from the low angle that gets the double chin n eyebags! Plus a goofy expression...If only we got to look into a mirror near the lense- that wou;d work for me!

Lines n waiting while others are chatting because they aren't working- Sounds like my job!

its a communist plot i tell you, all them commies!

Lynn said...

I think you could use swiss cheese. I found the gruyere in what I call the "fancy cheese section" of my Publix store.

Nancy said...

Annie,

I can't write anything because I am shaking from laughing so hard.

You are sooooo funny!

Bonnie said...

Funny because for some reason, even though she passed 9 years ago, my mother seems to be in my photos. Sometimes even my Grammy manages to sneak in, lol.

Granny Annie said...

Riot Kitty -- An ID for active military takes about 30 minutes to renew. Civilian ID takes five minutes. Why couldn't they have two lines?

Snaggle Tooth -- And they do not allow any retakes. What they snap is what you get. I got it all -- double chin n eye-bags plus goofy expression. You would think those who seemingly had nothing to do would hide in a back room or something and not prance around all of us waiting in line for one person to help us.

Whitemist -- Yep, you got it. LOL

Lynn -- If someone reads you comment and doesn't know you are responding to a previous question from me it would sound like you think I should use Swiss cheese for my ID picture. hahahahahahahah

Nancy -- Love to put a smile on your face,. Be sure an look for your kitten on my next post. That will make you smile too.

Bonnie -- Oh yes, you are so right. I glimpse all those people in my mirror as well as photos. Well not your mother and grammy....my mother and grammy. LOL
