[PUBLIC] New Jersey Hates Me, But Chicago Steals My Stuff

Sometime between 0915 and 1140 local today, my driver's license decided to go on a wondrous excursion. I wish it the best of luck in its new life. I, however, am finding new and interesting ways to do without my primary photo ID (the fact that my passport isn't with me either is bonus fun!) Tomorrow I get to take the TSA's new No-ID flight regulations for a test drive (the regulations changed back in June 2008, after the last time I needed to pull this particular stunt.) Amusingly, the last time I lost my license was also in Chicago, although that time I left it at a security checkpoint at O'Hare, rather than the apparently mysterious vanishing act my current ID has pulled.

On the up side, I ordered a new license today, and it will come printed with my current address on it. Take that, "do-it-yourself sticker" policy! Amusingly, before you apply for a replacement license on the RMV website, it advises you to have a valid email address, appropriate documentation, and your driver's license. My faith that the process was not that broken lead me to proceed anyways, and I was gratified to discover you are not actually expected to have your missing license when applying for a duplicate.

I discovered while trying to get my house built that dependency loops do exist when interacting with governments and utilities.

Perhaps the process of ordering your replacement license will coax your existing license out of its hiding spot.

It is true that this technique works a statistically worrisome amount of the time.
