Better than a mug shot?

Friday, July 1, 2011

My work's office is moving over the weekend...which means out with the old work ID and in with the new.

I will no longer be walking around with an angry mug shot on my key chain. Why the sour face, you ask? Well, when the (not so) nice man in the building office took my picture for my ID on one of my first days on the job, he told me he would count to three.

One...

Two...

SNAP.

Oh yes. He took the picture on two. Who does that to a woman?! I was completely unprepared. Right after two I was going to tilt my chin down and pretend I was happy. And, in keeping with my personality, I kept my mouth shut instead of asking for a re-do.

So, for the past year and a half, I've been unhappily carrying around an awful picture, trying to keep it hidden from public view as much as possible (if you think I'm joking, I'm not). However, for the purposes of blogging and the hope for better IDs the world over, I decided I must share the consequences of not counting to three. Be prepared people, be prepared.


For my new ID, I was prepared with my chin tilt and smile, and I think it shows. I mean, this new photo has to be better than the mug shot. Right?! Right.


Happy Fourth, everyone!

Why is your name backward on the new one? LOL
My ID photo sucks too! I had the worst haircut, and was so excited to get a new photo when I changed my name, but they just reissued with the same photo! Boo! Hiss!

Work IDs are the worst — perhaps even more than your driver's license picture, because you usually have to display it at all times (at least at the companies I've worked for). Glad you got a better pic, and happy Fourth to you as well!
