I had to talk to a homeless lady today trying to renew her DL.

TX requires an address to renew.

I couldn't help her and she was crying so hard she couldn't speak.

It hurt me to my soul.

COVID is affecting people that aren't even sick to begin with and this is only going to get worse.

Guys, I do this for a living.

There are state laws that govern what I can and cannot say.

While I appreciate the effort, all of your suggestions are things I either did or considered in the way that I'm allowed.

I just needed to vent cos that situation really upset me.

I'm not looking for help or advice, just giving a perspective some folks may not realize is happening.

We're currently building a carport so we can work in the sun and rain. And so my car doesn't get shiat on. (The garage is for motorcycles. It's also pretty small.)

One of our besties is helping out, so it's sort of an excuse to hang out with him. I'm mostly ferrying water, beers, and snacks out to the construction site. This isn't a job for the vertically challenged.

Did some hiking this morning to Lava Butte in south central Washington. Steep trail and I'm too out of shape. Had to ford a creek at the beginning as the log bridge washed out over the winter. Didnt bring a towl, though to dry the feet.
Turns out the summit is viewless as well and bashed my head on a branch 50 feet from the parking lot on the way back.

Here's the one photo I got. Paintbrush in the foreground.

They don't usually say.

Unless there's an announced special coming on, it's always wait and see.

The answer is to rent a mailbox (UPS Store or USPS Post Box) and explain on the form it's because no permanent dwelling address.

She did announce a near term desire to meet fish last week, so it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

For the record, that's what I had to do to renew my drivers' license when I was homeless and in a shelter.

Yup.

Because I didn't consider that for even a second.

Neither did any of the 20 other people that work on my team.

Or the team leads.

None of us considered that for a second.

OR we did

And aren't allowed to say that because of state law.

Applying for a PO Box

I couldn't get one without it.

When I was homeless and trying to get an Oregon DL in Eugene the clerk at the post office told me I had to have a street address of some kind to rent a PO Box. When I went to a private store the guy flat out told me they didn't rent to the homeless. Some communities have a blanket policy of doing everything possible to dissuade out of state people from establishing permanent residence and applying for WELFARE and becoming a burden on the tax payer.

There's usually a church, shelter or private homeless assistance program that helps with. It took me two months to find it.

And when I was homeless in Kansas City and applying for disability, the state determination board wanted a disinterested third party to vouch for my situation. Guess who I got to do it? That's right, a librarian. She had to check with upper management first, but she did it.

And when we went to court to appeal the denial two years later my lawyer said it was a good thing I got that statement.

God bless librarians.
