[PUBLIC] In Which I Claim The World's Remaining Balance of Stupid Points...

So I got to ORD 4 hours before my flight to make sure I had plenty of time for a nice, long security interview before I had to leave. I picked up my boarding pass, and made my way to the relatively unknown security checkpoint off between Terminals 1 & 2 at the airport, in hopes I would not be holding up much of a line. There was nobody in the security line. I walked up to the inspector, handed her my boarding pass, and explained I lost my license while in Chicago. She called over another fellow to interview me, to together we started going through all the documentation of my identity I had with me. He checked my credit cards, my debit card, my old WPI ID I still carry with me (I knew there was a reason!), my Marriott rewards card, my Red Carpet Club membership, my Amtrak Guest Rewards, even some old expired Red Cross first-responder certifications that had long since lapsed. As I digging out my AAA card, from a breach in the structure of my wallet emerged my long-lost driver's license! Apparently when I put my license back after checking into my client site, I didn't slip it into the pocket I thought I did, but rather through a tear that lead to the "interior" of the wallet, and there my license remained entombed as I ripped apart everything but my wallet looking for it.

On the upside, my interview came to a very abrupt end, my pass was signed, and I got on the concourse. Now I'm just killing time in the airport club until I get to go home.

can you still cancel the new license order? that might make you feel a bit better. sounds like you need a new wallet.
