Topic: It sucks being nobody. (20 msgs / 917 lines)
1) From: Aaron
Well I went and somehow lost ALL my @#$%$% ing ID's sometime yesterday I 
am thinking.
I cant get onto base because I don't have a Military ID or civ 
contractor ID to show. (both lost) I can't get a temp or a new one until 
I have a picture ID to prove I am who I am (also lost)  DMV is not open  
until monday sometime.
Really don't want to be driving around too much without Drivers License, 
(with my luck Id get pulled over for something, then it'd be let the 
games begin)  Can't go fishing because I lost my fishing license too, 
and even on shore, they still ask for ID occasionally, (again let the 
games begin if you can't produce).
At least I have some decent coffee roasted up and didn't lose that.  I 
guess I get to sit around the house and sulk all weekend.  I really 
don't have any excuses now for not doing the housework that Ive been 
putting off for a while now...  ::sigh::  .. Ill use it as an excuse to 
try some new beans.
Aaron...... or am I?

Hey Aaron,
If I were you I would contact all three credit bureaus (Experian, TransUnion
& Equifax) ASAP and have an allert put in my file.  This way somone
will call you if there is an attempt to apply for credit.

Aaron,
I think you are looking at this the wrong way and you have a reason of
paramount importance that will keep you from doing those chores.
Go out and drive around until you do get pulled over ... and make it
something really good.  The police will prove who you are in no time!
You'll be all set for Monday morning.
Just trying to help ...

You may have already done this, but look between the seat cushions of  
your car--stick your hand in there all the way; also all the way  
around and under the seats--it amazes me what I manage to find every  
time I do that.  Also, if it turns out you lost your ID wallet and  
weren't pickpocketed, some good Samaritan might pleasantly surprise  
you. It's happened twice to my husband and me (and once with his  
cellphone that somehow fell out of his pocket on the L platform).   
Finally, the Sec'y of State's office is a lot more accommodating than  
it used to be--last time I had my wallet stolen, just a passport and  
a utility bill did the trick to get my DL replaced (with a much more  
flattering photo, too).
Oh, and if you truly believe you were ripped off, file a police  
report PRONTO--you can do it by phone and they can fax or e-mail it  
to you; use that if you get pulled over. It'll also help you get some  
partial recovery from your homeowner's or renter's policy if you can  
show you incurred financial losses because of it (depending on the  
terms of your policy, of course).
One more thing--when you get your DL, also get a State ID card and  
keep it in a separate place--if you lose your DL or passport, you  
will still have a gov't-issued photo ID that airlines and the TSA  
will accept.

Sandy,
Not in NJ:http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/Licenses/ident_ver_posterpint.pdf.Igot my most recent renewal under the new system. Observing, talking &
listening while in line I noticed some being turned away after their third
attempt. Oh, and once you get a DL you still need additional ID to renew: 2
points of secondary documentation and proof of address (letter/statement to
you at your address from a bank or utility). There are steps being taken to
assure all states conform to minimum standards for issuing state IDs &
defining features of the IDs themselves. The Federal requirements are
similar to those being used by NJ, so expect DL replacement to be more
difficult in the future.
Good suggestion on the IDs. I do my best to keep IDs in separate locations,
especially so when travelling. I travel with 3 IDs acceptable to board a
commercial airliner, and they are never together. At the very least I keep
them in separate pockets in different articles of clothing. Once upon a time
somebody could buy a ticket & have the airlines hand it over with no ID
required (buyer accepted the risk -- monetary risk). You could even have the
ticket agent give you some cash! No longer.

"Sgt. Schultz" was a harried young man at the entrance who greeted all
comers, did a preliminary check of paperwork, advised them on necessary
forms, and pointed them to the correct line.
Problems tended to be with:
   - married women who had changed their names -- IDs with maiden name
   are no good without proof of name change
   - teenagers (or older) without proof of address (no bank account, no
   utilities) ... and no, bringing mommy & daddy along doesn't help
   - foreign-born attempting to use non_US birth certificates, driver
   licenses, etc ...
 The BMV office I went to was featured in a very bad movie. In the movie it
was the gates to hell. It wasn't quite that bad!  Folks working there were
very polite & competent, but they do follow the rules. It was about
1.5hours total time for me. It should have been much less. The
majority of
people in line were on a return visit or had already been told they weren't
prepared but refused to believe Sgt. Schultz.

As long ago as the summer of 2002, some hotels were already using  
suggested DSH (and I don't mean the breed of cat) protocol.  I had  
flown in to NY from O'Hare to join my family at the hotel where Bob's  
high school reunion was being held (I had to perform in Madison the  
night before, so I dropped them at the airport, continued north, then  
after the gig drove back to O'Hare where I stayed overnight at the  
airport hotel and then took the first flight out in the morning).   I  
know I had my phone in my purse when I got to O'Hare because I phoned  
the guys to tell them I'd checked out of the hotel and was on my way;  
and then slipped the phone back into my purse and went through  
security.  Security already entailed having to separate laptop from  
backpack, and it did not help matters that the hardware in my leg set  
off the metal detector. By the time I was pulled out of line, wanded,  
patted down and allowed to retrieve my belongings, anything could  
have happened to the latter....and it did.  Had an uneventful flight,  
got the first waiting taxi, had no traffic in from LaGuardia, and  
breezed confidently into the hotel lobby across from Penn Station to  
check in.
"Sorry," said the desk clerk, "but you're not registered to stay  
here, your husband and son didn't list your name or request a key be  
held for you, and we're full up." I was aghast. I told her *I* was  
the one who had made the reservation over the phone (naming all three  
of us), and she replied, "Oh, they checked in yesterday, but they  
didn't preregister you; and they left for a walk about an hour ago."  
I showed her my DL and she said, "That still doesn't mean you can  
stay here. I don't know that  your husband deliberately didn't check  
you in because he doesn't want to see you."  (!!!)  So I asked if I  
called him and he confirmed to her I was who I was, could I stay? She  
nodded. I opened my purse, reached for my cell phone......and you  
guessed it: it was gone (had to have been taken while I was being  
searched at O'Hare, possibly even by a TSA agent--who were at the  
time untrained and poorly screened private employees). I asked if I  
could use the house phone, and first called my husband:  no answer,  
since he never turns his cellphone on except to return a page.  So I  
paged him--which returned the message "sorry, you are out of range  
for this pager." (duh).  Then I called Gordy, whom I knew always kept  
his phone on: at that age he was already texting up a storm.  I got  
HIS voicemail too.  So I had to sit with my bags and cool my heels in  
the lobby for another hour.
Finally, they strolled in from a walk to Ground Zero. I told them  
what the heck I was doing sitting in the lobby with my bags when we  
had such a nice suite--had I just gotten in because my flight was  
late? When I told them what happened, Bob said he HAD mentioned to  
the desk clerk the night before that I would be joining him the next  
day, but apparently that clerk neglected to write down my name. We  
cleared up the mess and I asked Gordy why he hadn't answered his  
cellphone. "Go upstairs and you'll see," he sheepishly replied--and  
there it was, plugged in next to his bed, charging.
These days, not even a confirmatory phone call (except to the room or  
a pre-listed contact number) would have worked to get me into the  
room. The night clerk may have dropped the ball in not asking Bob if  
he wanted to formally preregister me; but the day clerk was doing her  
job, and doing it by the book.

future.
The terrorists and illegal aliens will always be able to obtain IDs. New
legislation will only make things more difficult for us law abiding
citizens.
Same thing with gun laws:
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things
worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man." -- Thomas Jefferson
Several years ago here in PA, officials in the dmv were indicted for selling
licenses to truckers and illegal aliens.

Aaron was in illinois.  i grew up in chicago.. umm I mean he did,  moved 
to florida, that navy thing, live in j acksonville florida now.
Believe it or not, I . umm he, doesn't have a passport,  I always used 
the Military ID thing to get around..
I lost my mil ID, my drivers license, work ID, base ID to get on the 
pier, fishing license, and my EPA CFC cert card.  One credit card which 
has already been cancelled.
Not the end of the world but a big pain the ass to get all this crap 
back now.  the thing that really burns me, I didnt go anywhere, i went 
from work to the doctors office and home, I had it at the docs office, 
and when I clocked out at work... its nowhere here at home or in the 
car... I hate it when shit disappears and you weren't out shopping or at 
a bar or anywhere where it'd be likely to happen....  Maybe I have a 
ghost  ::shrug::

Do you have a lock on your front door? Do you lock it? Is it perfect
security that will stop all crooks?
No! It makes your neighbors' house an easier target. It makes your house not
worth the investment, rewards inside are worth more than the risk of gaining
entry. And if the burglar does gain entry into the house you have delayed
him or had a chance to notice him so you can use secondary defences: hide,
call for help, run out the back door, or whatever else you have set up.
It won't stop a crook, but it might slow him to the point that you notice
him trying to break in, or make it difficult enough that it won't be worth
the crooks' investment into breaking into your home, or the crook will find
your neighbors' homes to be easier targets.
The new ID system isn't perfect. It does up the ante, making it harder &
more expensive to create a fake ID, especially one that will stand up to
close scrutiny.

In Manhattan, the Polizei are making a big thing about letting you 
know that they can check your backpacks as you enter the subway. The

who are EXITING...lol Where are the Keystone Kops when ya need them...??
I'd rather take my chances with the bad guys than with these morons...
