Woman's New Driver's License Photo Is Just An Empty Chair

Woman's New Driver's License Photo Is Just An Empty Chair

Unlike most people, 25-year-old Jane Dodd didn't have to contend with a terrible photo when she renewed her driver's license - because she wasn't in the photo at all!

Instead, when the Tennessee resident received her new license after renewing it online, her identification photo had been replaced by a picture of a chair.

While that would probably cause some to question their existence, or wonder if they're in fact a ghost or vampire or something similar, there's a much less supernatural explanation - the chair was the last photo mistakenly taken and saved to Dodd's file at her last visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Dodd told WKRN: "I was with my mom and we were going to eat lunch and I said, 'You need to see this, this isn't right.'

"The lady at the DMV did not really believe me when I was like, 'Hey, I need my license fixed.' Then she looked it up in the system and goes, 'Oh, I need my manager for this.'"

Aldi Australia Is Selling That Hanging Egg Chair Again Just In Time For Spring

Thankfully, the DMV acted swiftly to fix things for Miss Dodd.

Wes Moster, the DMV's director of communications, said in a statement: "When the customer recently renewed her driver license online she received an image of a chair because that was the last picture taken on file.

"When the Department was made aware of her situation, we immediately made things right with the customer and provided her with a license with her actual photo and have addressed this situation internally."

As inconvenient as it may have been for a short while, Dodd really just thinks the whole thing is funny. And she's not the only one.

She said: "My boss thinks it's funnier than anyone. I was at work Friday and he pointed to a chair outside of his office door and was like, 'I thought this was you, I waved at it this morning' and I was like, 'Thanks'."
