  1. @bjnovak had been waiting in the third row of pea-green, fiberglass chairs at the DMV for two hours to pick up a replacement driver's license when his name was finally called.
  2. "Benjamin Novak!" an old clerk—with Bernice pinned to her gray blouse—called out from behind a high counter, her face an old, leather catcher's mitt. @bjnovak arose from his seat, cracked his neck first to the left, then to the right, and approached the countertop, opposite Bernice.
  3. "May I help you?" she rasped, pulling the top off of a battered Tupperware bowl, revealing a lunch-sized portion of cold tuna casserole.
  4. @bjnovak set his passport and credit card—the two acceptable forms of primary identification he'd been told to bring—down on the counter between them.
  5. "Yes. I've been waiting—for a long time now and—I'm just here to pick up a replacement license for the one I lost!"
  6. "You don't pick those up here, hon," said Bernice, picking at a tooth with a long finger nail while licking a plastic spoon, "you need to visit the Pasadena East branch."
  7. @bjnovak's heart beat quickly. He instinctively balled both hands into fists. "But the sign hanging there," and he nodded towards a foam-board sign hanging from the mildewed drop-ceiling, "says that you CAN pick u—"
  8. "Oh, that!" said Bernice, "That's super out of date. I'm sorry."
  9. Bernice looked past @bjnovak at the horde of others who waited in silence to be called forth.
  10. "Ann Hagerty!" Bernice yelled to no one.
  11. @bjnovak turned to go. And he almost went. But instead, he lifted the heavy, vision-testing machine off the counter and over his head—ripping its power cord from the wall—and started to howl like a wolf at midnight under a harvest moon.
  12. THE END
